Discover the architecture that is being developed across the OpenStack and OpenDaylight project to enable OpenStack service function chaining support in OpenDaylight controller.
OpenDaylight Webinar: Uniting Open Source-Based Cloud Solutions With OpenDaylight
OpenDaylight has become a nexus for open source project integration, creating the new open networking stack. The fifth “Boron” release provides new tooling and documentation to support application developers, as well as greater integration with larger industry frameworks from OPNFV and OpenStack to CORD and Atrium Enterprise. Boron also brings a strong practical focus on two leading types of deployments, with enhancements to cloud and NFV support as well as large-scale network engineering.
In this webinar, we reviewed market trends in open SDN and cloud networking, with a focus on Boron milestones. In particular, we focused on the architecture that is being developed across the OpenStack and OpenDaylight project to enable OpenStack service function chaining support in OpenDaylight controller.
