<h2>Service-based networking for dynamic infrastructure</h2>
<p>The shift from static infrastructure to dynamic
infrastructure changes the approach to networking from host-based to
service-based. Connectivity moves from the use of static IPs to
dynamic service discovery, and security moves from static firewalls to
dynamic service segmentation.</p>
