OpenDaylight is much more than just another open source software networking project. In only a few years it has become the cornerstone of SDN deployments around the globe, and a leader in the Open Source networking field. It has become critical to ensure that OpenDaylight software itself is managed and deployed with a high level of integrity, robustness, and ‘commercial strength’. Because it’s so easy to get started with ODL as a Proof of Concept, software developers and network engineers can be tempted to take shortcuts to get something rolled out quickly. By following a structured, professional Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) process for ODL, users can mitigate potential disasters and avoid costly do-overs, while greatly accelerating the path to a production quality, commercial-grade deployment. Mathieu Lemay, CEO of Inocybe, will discuss how to create a robust OpenDaylight environment built around specific use cases.
