IT Best Practices: As Intel’s business grows, demand for data center network capacity has increased by more than 25% annually. Additionally, business pressures require new capacity to be brought into production within 24 hours. As far back as 2014, we recognized the potential of software-defined networking (SDN) to help meet these challenges.

After evaluating SN components and architectures, we selected an open, standards-based architecture instead of a supplier-centric solution. As our SDN architecture has matured, we have developed a standardized and scalable data center network architecture that takes advantage of automation. The open interface allows flexibility to integrate additional business-driven automation to meet our growth and timeline needs.
