SAN FRANCISCO, CA and ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- (OPENSTACK SUMMIT) The OpenDaylight Project, a community-led and industry-supported open source platform to advance Software-defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), today announced that HP, one of the project's founding members, is now a Platinum member. The company joins existing OpenDaylight Platinum members Brocade, Cisco, Citrix, Ericsson, IBM, Juniper, Microsoft and Red Hat in the industry effort to accelerate a new era in openness for SDN and NFV architectures.
For networking to evolve and SDN to thrive, the industry must agree upon a common core platform. OpenDaylight represents the industry's largest and most diverse collaborative SDN community, producing real code and blueprints. Key debates around SDN are being internalized within the open source OpenDaylight community and the results are propagated in its open, common SDN and NFV platform.
HP's SDN and NFV vision and portfolio extend across the entire network, from data center to campus and WAN, with a focus on open, standards-based and interoperable solutions. Furthermore, OpenDaylight's collaborative approach paves the way for interoperability between vendors and the emergence of an application ecosystem that gives users the flexibility and control they want from their networks.
Sarwar Raza, director of cloud networking and SDN, HP Networking, will join OpenDaylight's board of directors, and David Lenrow, distinguished architect, HP, will join OpenDaylight's Technical Steering Committee. As part of its Platinum membership, HP will dedicate additional employee resources to OpenDaylight. Its developers are already contributing to the community through several OpenDaylight projects including the core controller and the recently proposed Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) Service, and will look for other areas where its expertise in SDN controllers and applications can help advance the technical discussions and code base.
"We are seeing all the major players aligning their SDN strategies around OpenDaylight. HP will be another galvanizing force for the project and industry, bringing the spirit of partnership and collaboration that has made them so successful," said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. "HP thought leaders have been an important voice in some of the critical technical debates in OpenDaylight and we look forward to their continued leadership and participation in the project."
"We see the combination of OpenFlow, OpenStack and OpenDaylight as crucial to accelerating the transition to open SDN and NFV architectures that will benefit the industry and our customers," said Mark Pearson, chief technologist, HP Networking. "Since its foundation, HP participation in the OpenDaylight community has helped bring a new era of openness for SDN and NFV, and now is the time to accelerate our leadership as key contributors to the organization's development as the primary open SDN platform leveraged across the industry."
