Network connectivity has become a key element of success for cloud computing deployments. Especially when large distributed computing and/or data-intensive applications are concerned. Apart from building networks to provide ubiquitous bandwidth at acceptable costs industry is focussing also on solutions to simplify management of such complex infrastructures with software defined network (SDN) technologies. The presentation will give insight into current SDN-type developments and how this may benefit future e-Infrastructures and Helix Nebula deployments with flexible cloud network security.
