Both Big Data and SDN are described in detail in previous chapters. This chapter investigates how SDN architecture can leverage its unique features to mitigate the challenges of Big Data volume. Accordingly, first, we provide an overview of Big Data volume, its effects on the underlying network, and mention some potential SDN solutions to address the corresponding challenges. Second, we elaborate more on the network-monitoring, traffic-engineering, and fault-tolerant mechanisms which we believe they may help to address the challenges of Big Data volume. Finally, this chapter is concluded with some open issues.
