In May 2014, when HP announced its platinum membership, our partners and customers clearly recognized HP’s vision to collaborate with SDN community to provide open, standards-based and interoperable solutions. Standing by our vision, we are now releasing an experimental version of the OpenDaylight controller (based on Lithium) on the HP SDN App Store.

Network aggregation: Where does SDN fit in?

By Ahmad Zamer, Sr. Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking


Ahmed Zamer.pngIn a recent blog, I wrote about the shift to disaggregation in today’s web-scale data centers. I explained that disaggregation separates the switch into different “layers,” including the operating system, so that you can change out a layer without affecting the others. This allows you to exploit multiple purchasing sources rather than having to buy everything from a single vendor.


Thinking in terms of layers of a disaggregated switch stack may bring to mind Software-defined Networking (SDN), which decouples the network control plane (software) in the switch from the forwarding plane – the physical infrastructure that forwards data to its destination. But while disaggregation and SDN certainly can support each other, they’re two different things.
