The next generation of data centers will need to be open, adaptive, and responsive. Workloads will be dynamically assigned to IT resources based on application characteristics, best-available resources and service level policies to deliver continuous, dynamic optimization and reconfiguration to address infrastructure issues. Standards-based application patterns and their integration into open source networking are key building blocks of such systems.
The OpenDaylight Project, with extensions around applications, services and middleware integration, can provide the framework for such open, adaptive and responsive data centers. There are various ways customers can utilize the ODP framework to build such a data center - all the way from “roll-your-own” to complete turnkey solutions from established vendors. This talk will present concrete steps an IT vendor needs to take to create a portfolio of robust product offerings around ODP; how the Open Source community based innovation and continuous development processes impact such a roadmap, and what additional value and benefits such a commercial offering brings to the end-user customer.
