Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is John Savill, and welcome to my course Implementing Windows Server 2016 Software Defined Networking. I'm a technical architect working with many of the largest companies in the world to help them with infrastructure related projects both on-premises, in the cloud, and a bit of both. Networking is the most complex aspect of any environment, and a move to software-defined networking brings new levels of flexibility along with fantastic new capabilities. But for a lot of people, when you say SDN, it's scary. You want to go and hide somewhere. And the reality is it's really not that bad. And in this course, we're going to look at the key principles related to SDN and network virtualization before walking through an actual deployment pointing out all of the gotchas along the way. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include what are the concepts behind software-defined networking, the options for software-defined networking v2 deployment and their management, and how to take advantage of powerful services like the software load balancer and the data center firewall. By the end of this course, you'll be able to identify the right way to use software-defined networking v2 as provided by Windows Server 2016 in your environment. Now, before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2016 basics; however, I'm going to try as much as possible to cover those fundamentals where required. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn SDNv2 with the Implementing Windows Server 2016 Software Defined Networking course at Pluralsight.
