Rapidly accelerating data growth requires software-driven automation. Software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) offer drive speed, agility, real-time intelligence, content and service delivery in the hyperscale age.

Significantly improved network performance, lower costs, and power efficiency are all direct benefits.
