It’s the end of August, which means “Tis the season.” What season is that? It’s now the end of the summer, which means back to school for our kids. It’s also NFL preseason, so all of us going through football withdrawal are close to getting some real football soon – time for Tebow mania, the football equivalent of SDNs.

This can help cloud providers manage their networks better, allow for true multi-tenant networking and aid in the movement of virtual machines.
