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)

Review copies available for “Software Defined Networking with OpenFlow”

We have a few e-copies of Software Defined Networking with OpenFlow ( http://bit.ly/18HDaFg ) available for review.

If interested, just drop a line in the comments below with following required details:

1. Email address (Drop a mail if interested to merwynf <at > packtpub <dot> com)
2. Choice of website for posting your book-review (can be your blog or website, Amazon.com or goodreads.com)

"Software Defined Networking with OpenFlow" is a step-by-step, example-based guide which will help readers gain hands-on experience with the platforms and debugging tools on OpenFlow. Readers can develop their innovative network application using the OpenFlow controller’s API quickly, and test their network application without commissioning any OpenFlow hardware equipment.

The one company that is a big proponent of Openflow, and uses it extensively connecting their dozen or so datacentres is Google.  They've been using Openflow for about 3 years, and developed their own Switches to connect to WAN. According to the paper, they are getting very efficient on these links showing in excess 90% utilisation.  They claim considerable cost savings and greater control of their applications, but without some problems encountered during deployments. The paper discusses the Network Engineering experiences encountered using Openflow.

SDN adoption is progressing at different rates depending on which market segment you are in (Carrier, Enterprise, Mobile). But the quickest does appear in the data-centre space where they leveraging existing virtualisation technology to this new paradigm.

Big Switch Networks, a big player in the Openflow movement had a rollercoaster week. Firstly, the company was listed as one of  the top ten Startups to work for.

Also, in the same week they announced one of their top engineer was leaving the company

Or could it be that that he was not successful in adopting Big Switch Controller in the OpenDaylight consortium, and he is paying the price?

Howie Xu, VP Engineering of Big Switch Networks, departs. No replacement announced at this point, nor information on where Xu is leaving to.

A rumour going around that Cisco is looking to buy Big Switch.

http://www.sdncentral.com/news/breaking-news-big-switch-angling-cisco-acquisition/2013/09/

If its true, the theory I have would be that they move the whole team onto OpenDayLight Project and accelerate the development of that controller, and eliminate the Big Switch Controller (Less confusion in the marketplace).

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

Cisco's spin in Insieme is finally coming out of stealth and announcing their new Nexus 9000 on November 6th. They are attacking several markets with this product, or more likely trying to neutralise several SDN offerings on the market. The 9000 will use a powerful dedicated ASIC for the task rather than "off than shelf". The marketing is interesting. They are calling it Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and not a single SDN terminology is used.  Typically, the applications demand the network resources. Sounds very familiar to Plexxi's offering with Affinity networking.

The key concepts and ideas of SDN are well understood now. There are number of use cases of SDN already in production networks. As soon  as mainstream starts to adopt SDN, Vendors will naturally start to offer training on their product/service offerings. Thereafter, formal certifications will proceed. Indeed two of the biggest Vendors of Networks, Cisco and Juniper are already working on SDN Certifications. I'm sure some of the startups of SDN are already thinking about certifications. If you remember the early adopters of Cisco CCIE, and Juniper JNCIE, they have carved out very successful careers.  I have no doubt if you pick the right SDN Certification there is good chance to repeat the success.
With the development of SDN certification programs, experts and vendors maintain this education is necessary for professionals looking to stay relevant in the networking space.

Nick Feamster, the guy who brought SDN to the masses via MOOC on coursera has teamed up some other colleagues to create a test bed to create the first Software Defined Internet eXchange (SDX). The paper looks into current deficiencies of the existing exchanges and merits of running SDN on these exchanges.
