In conjunction with the launch of SDxCentral’s SDN Controller Report, we are pleased to join with Brocade, one of the major contributors to OpenDaylight, to look at what’s next for the leading open source controller and what it means for end-users looking to deploy SDN solutions.
OpenDaylight has emerged as the leading open source platform for building programmable software-defined networks, with an active user advisory group and 500 committers from more than 40 member companies. At the same time, OpenDaylight contains a wide array of different projects, which sometimes makes it hard to grasp what the Project really offers. And finally, many users want to understand what “open” really means, and what to look for if they’re considering an open source distribution.
If you are an IT executive or network architect at an enterprise or service provider considering either an open source or commercial SDN solution, you will want to join our webinar featuring Colin Dixon, Brocade principal engineer and OpenDaylight Technical Steering Committee chair and Lisa Caywood, senior product marketing manager at Brocade.
Hosted by Roy Chua, co-founder of SDxCentral, both Roy, Colin, and Lisa will cover:
- A brief history of SDN controllers
- An update on today’s commercial and open source controllers
- What users want in an open source SDN solution
- Key milestones for the recent OpenDaylight Lithium release
- What OpenDaylight Beryllium needs to focus on, from both technical and user perspectives
- First-hand experience building products from OpenDaylight at two companies—best practices, traps, and pitfalls
- How Brocade works with users and the OpenDaylight community to deliver a commercial distribution and applications that promptly address user needs
