NoviFlow founding contributor to ONF’s Atrium Open SDN Software Distribution
NoviFlow offers optimized support for Atrium 2015/A Open SDN Solution, incorporating the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the Open Network Operating System (ONOS), and Open Compute Project (OCP) components
The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN), today announced the release of Atrium, an open SDN software distribution, of which NoviFlow is a founding contributor. Atrium is designed to help the networking industry as a whole more easily adopt open SDN by integrating established open source SDN software with some critical connecting pieces. The software elements run in either controllers or switches, including NoviFlow’s NoviSwitch series of high-performance OpenFlow switches!
Atrium reduces the complexity and risk associated with creating OpenFlow applications by making it possible for OpenFlow forwarding-planes to optimize how applications make use of their resources. This will make it easier for customers to maximize the advantages of high-performance OpenFlow forwarding-planes such as the NoviSwitch, as well as creating a much broader addressable market for developers of OpenFlow controllers and applications.
NoviFlow will also be demonstrating our contribution to Atrium as part of the ONOS Atrium Demo Showcase at ONS 2015 in Santa Clara from June 15th to 18th, 2015. See blog below on our participation in ONS 2015.
