Pica8 Chief Architect Shows Developers How to Get Started Building SDN Applications
PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
At a forum held for developer professionals today, Pica8 chief architect
David Liu demonstrated an open production-ready software defined
networking (SDN) platform that enables the open source community to
develop specific applications, such as multi-path network optimization
Speaking as part of the "Tech Talk" lecture series at Hacker Dojo, a
non-profit community center comprised of developer professionals, Liu
gave a primer on what developers need to know help users configure
Pica8's open switches to work in various application scenarios. In
particular, integration of the open switch with OVS-making it an Open
OVS Switch and then building an interface to a RYU OpenFlow controller.
Additionaly, Liu showed how to regulate flow configuration between the
RYU open flow controller and the OVS interaction.
"SDN and open networking will move from concepts to best practices once
developers and businesses are able to see these practices in action and
understand how they gain value and help manage costs," said Liu. "I
believe today's demonstration was successful in giving a jump start to
those interested in SDN by showing the types of virtual switches and
controllers that can be used in production environments and how to
configure the new and necessary devices and protocols."
