Hello !! I am interested in starting my research in the field of SDN. I looked around the internet for which SDN controller is the most suitable for research purposes, but it seems that the SDN community does not agree on a specific controller.

I would like to get advice about which controller is optimum taking into consideration the following:

* Preferably uses Python environment (I am an intermediate Python user but not a professional).
* Provides a decent level documentation as to how to use different network components (I will be simulating a complete network from hosts to core routers).
* Provides a GUI for configuration or at least a graphical representation of the simulated network.
* Best supported with an online community in case of future issues of concepts and connectivity.

During my online research I found that most people recommend POX. Although after setting it up and using its basic functions, I did not feel that it is the most suitable.

Really appreciate your help and time regarding this issue.

Check out Brocade who offers Open Daylight support. NEC is another player in this space worth checking out.

SDN & NFV: You Need Both

IT organizations strive to deliver applications to their users more efficiently and productively in order to increase revenues, reduce costs, and improve quality of experience. At the same time, IT departments are mandated to provide more agile, automated and resilient services. Network services cannot take days, weeks or months to provision, which is often the case in current data centers. In many cases, new application services need to be enabled in near real-time.

The complementary nature of SDN and NFV makes them equally critical parts of an efficient virtual network.

KEMP tire profit du contrôleur SDN de HP pour améliorer le niveau de service applicatif

Avec l’avènement du numérique, les données et les applications façonnent l’économie moderne. Les individus comme les entreprises vivent au rythme des applications et deviennent, par la même occasion, de plus en plus exigeants vis-à-vis d’elles. Les utilisateurs ne tolèrent ni lenteur ni indisponibilité. En exploitant les informations provenant des contrôleurs SDN, KEMP optimise la qualité des services applicatifs.

The first SDN Capable ADC/Load Balancer is now available

At KEMP, we're thrilled to make available the first SDN Capable Application Delivery Controller - which has been demonstrated with the  VAN Controller.

Our first to market SDN Adaptive traffic steering capabilities will enable integration with SDN environments such as OpenDaylight and HP Virtual Application Networks (VAN) to provide optimal application quality of experience (QoE). By communicating with HP VAN or OpenDaylight controllers, LoadMaster can marry SDN network intelligence with comprehensive layer 7 application visibility. LoadMaster extracts data about saturation between clients and application servers, and steers traffic through more optimized routes.

Hello all, 
I'm trying to determine whether it would be possible to use openflow to redirect traffic through an arbitrary non openflow enabled network. The use case is: source -> openflow hop -> non openflow network -> openflow hop -> firewall .  Would tunneling across the non-openflow tradtional network be an option for example? (GRE)

On March 14, 2014, we will demonstrate the power of application abstractions, using OpenDaylight to control application flows running across a Plexxi network.

Comments on the NetworkWorld SDN article

Overall this piece was chock-full of valuable data bits that we in the industry can use for planning future technology solutions. The most important take-away for me from the various responses was just how poor a job we in the industry have done in delivering the message around SDN and Network Virtualization (or #NFV). As indicated by the answers in Table 8. Respondents saw the two as sometimes “complementary” but, the reality is to enable the fully dynamic and agile data center they are both required together, not just complementary. The responses and commentary on this fact were too softly delivered, in my opinion.

Hello, Does anybody have experience to configure OpenFlow switch with XenServer? Such as Pica8 to support hardware OVS instead internal OVS in XenServer.
