Oracle Joins OpenDaylight Project, Plans to Integrate OpenDaylight SDN Capabilities Into Oracle Solaris

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
Oracle is expanding its application-driven software defined networking (SDN) capabilities in Oracle Solaris 11.2 with plans to integrate OpenDaylight SDN. The integration is intended to allow customers to improve service quality and take advantage of apps-to-disk SLAs through compatibility with a wide range of SDN devices, applications and services. It will also allow them to use a common and open SDN platform with OpenStack to manage Oracle Solaris-based clouds.

News Facts

  • Oracle has joined the OpenDaylight Project as a Silver Member.
  • The OpenDaylight Project is a community-led and industry-supported open source platform to advance SDN and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
  • Oracle intends to integrate OpenDaylight SDN into Oracle Solaris 11.2, which melds efficient virtualization, application-driven software-defined networking (SDN) technology and a full OpenStack distribution with an enterprise-class OS to provide a highly efficient, compliant, secure, open and affordable software platform for cloud computing.
  • The integration is intended to enable customers to use Oracle Solaris' virtualization and application-driven SDN features with OpenDaylight-compatible SDN devices, applications and services.
  • Integrating OpenDaylight with Oracle's complete stack will also allow customers to take advantage of apps-to-disk SLAs with pluggable databases and Java, protect higher priority application and management flows and use Java Developer Kit APIs for Networking SLAs.
  • Customers will also be able to use Oracle Solaris' OpenStack distribution for cloud management across Oracle SPARC and x86 systems, Oracle storage, and a wide range of SDN ecosystems and applications built upon a common and open platform.
  • Oracle also intends to enable compatibility with OpenStack Neutron and OpenDaylight SDN to allow customers to deploy applications in highly available, secure and flexible Oracle Solaris virtual machine instances.
  • Since the release of Oracle Solaris 11, over 5,000 customers have gone into production and many are deploying applications in Oracle Solaris-based clouds. With the integration of OpenDaylight SDN and OpenStack in Oracle Solaris, customers will be able to expand their use of Oracle Solaris in new cloud deployments.
