(Panel) Clouds, Virtualization and SDN - What Networking Features do Cloud Environments Need that OpenDaylight Can Provide? - James Bottomley, Parallels; Kyle Mestery, Cisco; David Meyer, Brocade Communications; Chiradeep Vittal, Citrix; Chris Wright, Red
We take this opportunity at the CloudOpen Event to bring together networking experts from OpenStack and CloudStack to discuss their most pressing problems in virtual networking with some of the leaders of the OpenDaylight SDN Controlller project. OpenDaylight should become a key foundational component of modern Cloud deploymemnts bringing much needed flexibility, features, and performance to both virtual networks, and the physical networks on which they reside. Bring your questions and suggestions on how OpenDaylight should evolve to best serve cloud environments in service providers and enterprises alike.

An Introduction to OpenDaylight's First Release - Ed Warnicke, Cisco
OpenDaylight is a community-led, open, industry supported framework consisting of code and blueprints, with the purpose of accelerating adoption, fostering new innovation, reducing risk, and creating a more transparent approach to Software-Defined Networking.

The First Simultaneous Release of OpenDaylight will be on December 9, 2013 and include
support a wide range of technologies, which include:
  • OpenFlow 1.0 and 1.3.x
  • Netconf
  • LISP
  • SNMP
  • Virtual Tenant Networks
  • OpenDOVE network virtualization
  • Affinity Management
Come hear about the contents and schedule of the OpenDaylight Release.

Network As Code: From Development to Production Using OpenDaylight - Brent Salisbury & Evan Zeller
The network is rapidly evolving. Networking is transforming from a vertically integrated industry to a horizontal model that is following the horizontal roadmap laid out buy the compute world. Horizontalization is enabling open source projects like OpenDaylight that allow the community to unbundle the networking stack and add new innovations and plug them back into a holistic framework.

This discussion covers two primary topics. First is to review a production OpenDaylight deployment in an enterprise campus. It will cover architectures, mechanisms and pain points found in early SDN adoptions. The second section is to walk through the Open vSwitch database (OVSDB) protocol and its integration into OpenDaylight. Open vSwitch is the primary virtual switch used in OpenStack and other orchestration deployments. OVSDB is the management protocol that will enable OpenDaylight to programmatically provision data paths in conjunction with orchestration systems.

Network Virtualization Support in OpenDaylight - Anees Shaikh, IBM
Network virtualization brings many of the same benefits of server and storage virtualization to networking such as logical isolation and multi-tenancy, independence from limitations of the underlying physical infrastructure and protocols, and the ability to rapidly deploy virtual networks for new workloads. Network virtualization is an important application of software-defined networking, and a number of virtualization technologies have been brought to OpenDaylight to support this important use case.

The virtualization projects proposed for OpenDaylight provide different virtual network models and also different implementations, based on OpenFlow, overlays and encapsulation, and also standard IETF protocols. In this session we will provide a brief overview of each virtualization project and also summarize their similarities, differences, and trade-offs. We will also discuss approaches for these technologies to interoperate within OpenDaylight and identify services and absractions that can serve multiple virtualization efforts while retaining flexibility for OpenDaylight users.

Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) - Network Virtualization on OpenDaylight - Su-Hun Yun, NEC
OpenDaylight Virtual Tenant Network (VTN) is a set of technology components that provide a multi-tenant virtual network with the OpenDaylight controller. Traditionally, huge network investments and operating expenses are required because the network is configured as a silo for each dedicated system as silo. Various network appliances must be installed for each tenant and those boxes cannot be shared with others. Thus it’s a heavy work to design, implement and operate the entire complex network. The VTN addresses this problem by providing a logical abstraction models (ie. vRouter, vBridge, vTunnel) that enable the complete separation of logical plane from physical plane. The VTN also provides mapping between logical and physical plane. Thus Users can design and deploy any desired network without knowing the physical network topology or bandwidth restrictions. The VTN provide Northbound-API for its application so that applications don’t require knowing all the detail of physical plane’s complexity and can program the logical network via Northbound-API. This presentation will discuss the VTN more in details.
