Software Defined Networking System Overview

Today is observed the extremely active growth in the bandwidth-intensive applications and permanent demand for speed, scalability, and resilience. The traditional networks and data centers are on the limit of their possibilities.

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a new powerful concept for decision these problems. SDN proposes to disaggregate the traditional networking stacks that are vertically integrated to customize the network operations for specialized environments and improve network service velocity.

SDN is a special approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services via the abstraction of functionality of the lower level. It is realized by separating the control plane from the data plane.

SDN is an important step in the evolution to the programmable and active networking. With SDN the network administrators have the programmable central control of the network traffic through the controller, without the physical access to the network's switches. Many networks use switches for sending, receiving and directing data over the network.

The networks with SDN allow to network administrators quickly respond on the changing of business requirements. The traffic can be formed from a centralized control console, there is no need to go out to another building to reconfigure switches individually.

The first supporters of SDN were OpenFlow, OpenDaylight, Brocade. The main application of SDN is the infrastructure as a service (IaaS), it is also used in the consolidated data-center, in traditional and geo-distributed campus networks. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is a powerful network diagramming and vector drawing software. It provides the Computer and Networks Area with many Solutions that contain the wide set of ready-to-use predesigned vector stencils, templates and samples to help you design the professional looking Software-Defined Networking (SDN) diagrams of any complexity quick and easy.

Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network Examples →

A Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers. This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies.Storage area networks (SAN). <br>Computer and Network Examples *

Cisco Network Topology. Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols →

In general, you can use any icons to represent network equipment on a diagram. However, there are some icons, for instance, Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols, that are recognizable worldwide. Using those icons you can create Cisco network topology diagrams in minutes and share them anywhere. The icons depicting Cisco network equipment are recognized and generally applied as standard images for designing network diagrams. They are free to used , but can not be reworked. Cisco network diagrams are created to depict how signals processed on the network equipment and end-user computers and how data transfer through LAN or WLAN between nodes. The vector graphic library of ConceptDraw CISCO Network Diagrams solution includes about 90 icons of Cisco network equipment for designing computer network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM.Cisco Network Topology. <br>Cisco icons, shapes, stencils and symbols *

Local area network (LAN). Computer and Network Examples →

Computer networks nowadays are spread all across the world. The large number of parameters, such as geographic scale or communication protocols, can divide networks. One of the most common types of networks is called local area network (LAN). It convenient to represent network examples by means of diagrams. This local area network (LAN) diagram provides an easy way to see the way the devices in a local network are interacted. The diagram uses a library containing specific symbols to represent network equipment , media and the end-user devices such as computers (PC, mac, laptop) , network printer, hubs, server and finally a modem. There are two types of network topologies: physical and logical. The current diagram represents precisely a physical type of LAN topology because it refers to the physical layout of a local network equipment.Local area network (LAN) diagram

Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning →

While creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams, you should use special objects to define different statements, so anyone aware of flowcharts can get your scheme right. There is a short and an extended list of basic flowchart symbols and their meaning. Basic flowchart symbols include terminator objects, rectangles for describing steps of a process, diamonds representing appearing conditions and questions and parallelograms to show incoming data. This diagram gives a general review of the standard symbols that are used when creating flowcharts and process flow diagrams. The practice of using a set of standard flowchart symbols was admitted in order to make flowcharts and other process flow diagrams created by any person properly understandable by other people. The flowchart symbols depict different kinds of actions and phases in a process. The sequence of the actions, and the relationships between them are shown by special lines and arrows. There are a large number of flowchart symbols. Which of them can be used in the particular diagram depends on its type. For instance, some symbols used in data flow diagrams usually are not used in the process flowcharts. Business process system use exactly these flowchart symbols.Basic Flowchart Symbols and Meaning

Network Architecture →

The efficiency of any corporate network depends on many factors such as equipment, architecture etc. Moreover, every administer knows that network architecture is a cornerstone for any system. Also, it's easy to make a draft of a network structure using an appropriate diagramming tool. Designing network architecture diagrams refers to the network structure, including hardware, software, connectivity, protocols of communication and type of transmission: wired or wireless. A high performance, highly reliable, and secure network architecture is critical for the successful deployment and operation of modern communication network.

A Virtual network is a computer network that consists of virtual network links, i.e. between the computing devices there isn't a physical connection. Well known forms of network virtualization are virtual networks based on the virtual devices (for example the network based on the virtual devices inside a hypervisor), protocol-based virtual networks (VLAN, VPN, VPLS, Virtual Wireless network, etc.) and their combinations.
