We always talk about “software-defined something” (too much indeed!) but you should take a look at how Coho implements SDN and then I’m sure you’ll come back saying Brillllliant! (yes, brilliant with a capital B and 5 Ls).
Coho data masquerades the complexity of scale-out and the limits of the communication protocol through SDN: you only see a single exposed IP address and all the data connections/paths are managed transparently. One protocol at the moment and more to come. It will be interesting to see how they apply this technique to other different protocol or access methodologies.
