Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an architecture that allows the creation, management and customization of the network through programmable switches and centralized controllers via a well-defined protocol. Despite the wide dissemination of general advantages in using SDN, it is always important to evaluate the real advantages considering specific network applications. In line with this, the purpose of this work is to analyze the effectiveness of using SDN for load balancing by developing a balancer, made available as free software, that can execute three different algorithms, giving to the administrator the possibility to choose, at run time, which will be used as well as their configurations, and the possibility to implement new algorithms.
