The Dell OpenDaylight (ODL) Controller eases software-defined network (SDN) and network-function virtualization (NFV) deployment and management in purpose-built OpenStack environments. This enables you to add new workloads and services with greater flexibility and agility.
The Dell Networking ODL Controller is a commercial distribution of the OpenDaylight project’s SDN controller.
Reduce the complexity of OpenStack networking deployments by integrating the ODL SDN Controller into OpenStack Neutron.
The industry-standard ODL controller sits on the OpenStack node and connects into the Neutron component of OpenStack. All required OpenStack networking functions are visible from Horizon, the OpenStack dashboard. The controller handles dynamic changes automatically.
The ODL controller interoperates with a rich ecosystem of software partner offerings for out-of-the-box SDN/NFV integration. It provides modularity and extensibility through easy Java programmability from open APIs.
The OpenDaylight SDN controller supports a majority of use cases for open SDN controllers, making it one of the most promising open source frameworks available. And you can expect faster workload deployment based on Dell software enhancements.
Dell’s active participation in the OpenDaylight community ensures ODL integration with OpenStack in open standard SDN deployments as well as support for future ODL releases.
