OpenDaylight Releasing First Open Source Software SDN, Named Hydrogen

Last April the Linux Foundation announced it was launching a community based project called OpenDaylight, an open source framework to promote more innovation and advancement in SDN programming(Software-Defined Networking). The project was initially propelled forward with funding from some big companies like: Arista Networks, Big Switch Networks, Brocade, Cisco, Citrix, Ericsson, HP, IBM, Juniper Networks, Microsoft, NEC, Nuage Networks, PLUMgrid, Red Hat and VMware, all of whom were dedicated to developing the open source framework for the SDN software.

On Feb. 4, 2014, OpenDaylight unveiled the open source software, called Hydrogen. The new open source software will allow companies to take advantage of the versatile, scalability and other types of fresh features that SDN will offer. Hydrogen will gather information from the network infrastructure thats already in use and give the computers system, a new wider range of functionality and communication abilities. The big announcement came at the opening of the OpenDaylight Summit in Santa Clara, Calif. The SDN software will made available in three versions: Base Edition, which OpenDaylight says is molded towards enterprises interested in “exploring SDN and OpenFlow for proof-of-concepts or academic initiatives” as opposed to full production environments. Virtualization Edition, will add onto the Base Edition with more security and network management functions, as well as providing functionality for constructing and managing VTN (Virtual Tenant Networks) and virtual overlays. The Service Provider Edition, for sources and carriers who oversee existing networks and want to plot a path to SDN and NFV.

OpenDaylight anticipates that most organizations will only use Hydrogen for trial and testing purposes at first, because open source software is so new and relatively untested. Once the SDN software gains notoriety and relevance it will be largely implemented into a production environment.
