Top Dawg Again!

I have contributed quite a few articles to SDxCentral, and some have been well received.

My first post there was "NFV and SDN: What's the Difference?" back on March 30, 2013. It has been the most popular contributed article for most of the time since then.

Since then, I once had 2 of the top contributed articles.

Today I saw that I have the top 3!
