SDN: What is behind Software Defined Networking?

Renting cloud resources is common practice in many companies. This is because the use of external, visualised hardware is attractive both for cost reasons and because of the associated flexibility: Many providers now use Software Defined Networking (SDN), a modern network approach that makes it possible to manage and scale hardware around the clock using software.

CIDR: what is classless inter-domain routing?

The internet – just like other large networks – must be precisely subdivided. The network classes, used until the 1990s and not yet completely gone from the scene, were far too inflexible for the requirements of the digital world. CIDR can help: With classless inter-domain routing, it’s possible to create effective subnets and routes. We explain how this works.
