In this article, we deconstruct scalability concerns in software-defined networking and argue that they are not unique to SDN. We explore the often voiced concerns in different settings, discuss scalability trade-offs in the SDN design space, and present some recent research on SDN scalability. Moreover, we enumerate overlooked yet important opportunities and challenges in scalability beyond the commonly used performance metrics.
