Re: And, the hardware?
Good questions @James, infact there is curiosity between management segement people to understand SDN decoupling hardware from software.

And, the hardware?
Ivan. Obviously the software is the key, but to strike this type of balance with every node getting the same performance, how much work has to be done on the hardware side to lay the foundation?

Bold Statement
Wow. That's a pretty bold statement, but I think it makes sense. Bascially, Ivan is saying that if you do everything right with your software defined datacenter design, you have nothing to worry about. I'm not so sure about that. There's always something to worry about.

Who cares?
This is a pretty bold observation from Ivan -- you need to be awfully confident in your design to stop worrying about how it's performing. Raise your hand if you can say that you don't care how the workloads in your data center network perform. Bueller...Bueller?
