BigSwitch adds their endorsement to ODIN
Following the recent release of the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network (ODIN) technical briefs at InterOp 2012, several companies have publicly pledged their support for the ODIN approach to open standards. Most recently, BigSwitch Networks has posted to their blog with a nice summary of recent open standards activities at InterOp, including their endorsement of the ODIN technical briefs. IBM deeply appreciates this show of support for open standards in the data center network, including the full breadth of software defined networking (SDN) approaches (both overlay networks and OpenFlow). IBM has demonstrated the industry's first 40G OpenFlow enabled switch, and continues to drive strong innovation in SDN and other aspects of the ODIN design approach.
