OpenDaylight is the leading open source platform for Software Defined Networking (SDN). Currently there is an ML2 plugin for OpenDaylight within Neutron. Significant work has already been done to show the benefits of managing virtual and physical network elements via OpenStack through the OpenDaylight controller. In addition, service function chaining, group-based-policy, security-groups and distributed virtual routing are all development activities that span both OpenStack and OpenDaylight and deeper collaboration on these topics will significantly benefit both projects.
The bulk of the time will be used in discussion of the above activities and brainstorming plans for work in Kilo and Lithium (OpenDaylight’s next release) to improve the network programmability available to OpenStack through the use of OpenDaylight. Additional technical topics for discussion will also be solicited from members of the audience and pursued as time permits.
