Cisco provides its well-acclaimed SDN product, the open SDN controller, which is an open-source-based software that is advancing through the latest innovation. The company supports the OpenDaylight community. Its features include commercial distribution, clustering, serviceability, and Open Virtual Appliance packaging, which provide it an edge over its competitors. It also offers Cisco Application Centric Interface (ACI), a comprehensive SDN architecture, which offers multiple benefits, such as greater scalability and network visibility. Cisco Systems services help organizations effectively migrate, adopt, deploy, and securely manage intent-based networking using SD-WAN. Cisco Software-Defined Access (SD-Access) offers organizations a single network fabric from the edge to the cloud, enabling them to set policy-based automation for users, devices, and things. It gives network architects and administrators the tools to orchestrate key business functions, such as user mobility, secure segmentation, user onboarding, IoT integration, guest access, context-based troubleshooting, and data center and cloud integration. Cisco ACI, the industry-leading SDN solution, provides application agility and data center automation.

VMware core products include data center and cloud infrastructure, networking and security, storage and availability, hyper-converged infrastructure, Cloud Management Platform (CMP), personal desktop, digital workspace, desktop and application virtualization, and enterprise mobility management. VMware was the first to bring forth the concept of an SDDC. The company offers products and solutions across categories, including SDDC and SDS, through computing, storage and availability, network and security, management and automation, hybrid cloud computing, End-User Computing (EUC), content collaboration, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), and application and desktop virtualization. VMware acquired VeloCloud, one of the SD-WAN industry leaders, in December 2017, to enter into the software-defined industry by using VeloCloud’s SDN-WAN (after the acquisition it is called as NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud). VMware NSX SD-WAN by VeloCloud delivers high-performance, reliable branch access to cloud services, private data centers, and SaaS-based enterprise applications.
