SDN (Software Define Networking) is an emerging networking technology that accelerates service delivery by grouping network policies into a single and centralized management system (often located in the cloud), to improve consistency and automation of processes. SDN separates the data plane (which is responsible for distributed control points or network intermediate devices) and the control plane (in charge of providing the user with a graphical interface to configure and manage the solution) to a more centralized environment.

Exinda Management Center (EMC) is a centralized management platform where network administrators can define a library of policies for application performance improvement that can be applied to a group of Exinda Appliances scattered across the network regardless of location. This provides consistent application policy, which ensures application performance across the organization without the need to log into and configure each appliance one-by-one.

SDN

While the Exinda appliance is still in charge of enforcing the policy, which provides shaping, caching or acceleration for sanctioned and non-sanctioned applications, the EMC software encompasses all necessary tools for configuration and firmware management.

The future of EMC (internally known as project QX Cloud), will come with aggregated reporting, alerting and a recommendation engine for all distributed Exinda nodes, as well as APIs so third party devices can interact with our reporting databases.
