Internet2 Readies 100G OpenFlow SDN for Big Data

Network World (07/09/12) Jim Duffy

Internet2 has nearly completed its OpenFlow-enabled 100G Ethernet software-defined network (SDN) for testing service delivery of applications for Big Data compilation and research.  The 100G Ethernet OpenFlow-enabled routers will allow for programmatic control of the Innovation Platform from an open source controller to facilitate scale and intelligent service delivery, according to Internet2.  The Innovation Platform is designed to advance education, university business, and global Big Data collaborative research outcomes, which should lead to new research initiatives and new cycles of global economic development, according to Internet2.  “The Internet2 community sees software-defined networking as much of the same transformative opportunity that we saw with the original Internet,” says Internet2’s Rob Vietzke.  “We’re making a fairly big investment in building this new nationwide SDN environment as a platform for software development.”  He says the Innovation Platform will enable member institutions to keep up with the exponential growth of Big Data generated by scientific research from U.S. labs and universities.
