Inocybe Technologies Launches Sustainable SDN Controller Powered by OpenDaylight
Company Delivers an OpenDaylight-based SDN Controller Designed for Scale, Simplicity and Sustainability
MONTREAL, QC – February 4, 2014 – At the OpenDaylight Summit, Inocybe Technologies Inc., the company that aims to keep IT simple and sustainable, is introducing its sustainable software-defined networking (SDN) controller based on OpenDaylight. From smart to simple, Inocybe builds off the excellent OpenDaylight Hydrogen release by adding simplicity, sustainability, scalability and commercial support. This special purposed OpenDaylight distribution is tailored to create reactive SDN applications in multi-tenant network environments.
“Basing our product roadmap on OpenDaylight gets us faster time to market for our customers. Moreover, by committing to OpenDaylight we ensure that our customers will stay current with the latest innovations for SDN and Network Function Virtualization (NFV),” said Mathieu Lemay, president and chief executive officer of Inocybe Technologies. “The SDN controller is an important piece of our IVP platform. We intend to drive our innovations back to the core product as a leader in OpenDaylight development. The OpenDaylight community is full of amazingly talented individuals and developers. They were all open and eager to make OpenDaylight better for Inocybe’s needs and for the rest of the community.”
“This product launch represents a key benefit of open source–the ability for companies, like Inocybe Technologies, to innovate where it counts rather than spending development cycles recreating the wheel,” said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. “The open, collaborative development of SDN and NFV technologies means that ultimately users are in control of building the future of networking.”
The Inocybe SDN controller works in tandem with official OpenDaylight editions and also provides the following additional features:
- Distributed and scalable controller logic – Using Actor Systems, the controller supports message passing between internal components and by integrating the reactive Typesafe Akka middleware technology, it offers greater self-healing and scalability.
- Sustainable ICT management – Information and communications technology (ICT) management capabilities are increased through the addition of initial extensions to get power information from network elements.
- New Software Development Kit (SDK) – A new software development kit has been created to simplify and accelerate SDN application development.
