A few weeks back, the Linux Foundation launched a Collaborative Project called FD.io (“fido”). One of the […]
Open Standards, Open Source, Open Loop
As the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) meets in Hawaii (IETF 91), the unavoidable question for both participants and observers is whether a Standards Development Organization (SDO) like the IETF is relevant in a rapidly expanding environment of Open Source Software (OSS) projects. For those new to the conversation, the open question is NOT whether […]
OpenDaylight Unleashes Hydrogen to the Masses
The OpenDaylight Project today announced that its first open source software release Hydrogen is now available for download. As the first simultaneous code release cross-community it has contributions across fifty organizations and includes over one million lines of code. Yes. ODL > 1MLOC. For those of you interested that’s approximately two hundred and thirty man-years of […]
OpenDaylight: Building an Open Source Community around SDN
It’s great to see Cisco and many companies across the industry make a major change in the use of Open Source via the newly form project hosted by the Linux Foundation called OpenDaylight.
