Vendors Combine To Standardize Virtual Networking With OpenDayLight 17

alphadogg writes "Software-defined networking, a set of technologies to help networks better adapt to user needs with less manual effort, may at last be getting the common foundation it has needed for interoperability and efficient development. Most of the major vendors working on SDN have joined in on OpenDaylight, a project being announced this week that will develop an open-source SDN framework. The vendors, which include Cisco Systems, VMware, Juniper Networks and Ericsson, will contribute software and engineers to the effort, according to Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, which is hosting the project." A story at Slash DataCenter on the initiative gives some background, too, about the slippery concept of software defined networking.
