OpenDaylight: the next Penguin?

Scott Bradner | April 10, 2013
It seems to be passe to be solid these days. The latest example of this is the just-announced OpenDaylight project, in which a bunch of the biggest names in computing and networking have gotten together to push an open source development effort to support software-defined (i.e., virtual) networking under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation.

I do note that the members of the OpenDaylight project seem to be on the supplier rather than the user side. I do not see Amazon or Google on the list. To me, the project would be more interesting if there were big operators in the mix.

Disclaimer: Like most big companies, Harvard is working in the cloudy space (e.g., http://www.mghpcc.org/) and may find that what the OpenDaylight project produces turns out to be useful. But it is too early to say and the university has expressed no opinion on daylight as an objective.
