SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

1. I try to set up my NICs manually, but there're three ifcfg-eth0 Configuration files:
AFAIK is the one in network-scripts the right one, but if I modify the IP there it won't change anything even after a reboot... The other two files seem to be hardlinks (is the a tool to show all hardlinks? I think so - how is it namend?)... A change of the IP there takes effekt! But the /etc/init.d/network script needs the "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0" to bring the interface up, so I can't delete it although it has no function! Can someone explain me the sense?!
Another Problem is that I like to set up a bridge with eth0 and wlan0 using the networkscript... so I wrote a startscript to configure the bridge and a ifcfg-br0 configuration file to bring this device up! The Problem is the start order... if I run the bridgeconfiguration before /etc/init.d/network it complains about not existing wlan0... in the other order /etc/init.d/network complains about missing br0... is there any solution for that Problem? Or is it unusual to bring bridges with /etc/init.d/network up?
Sorry for the bad english and greetings from Germany! ;-)
