  • The FlexNetwork architecture provides the infrastructure blueprint for Virtual Application Networks. It is the industry’s only architecture, converging the data center, campus, and branch based on open-industry standards and delivering consistency with a single-pane-of-glass management.
  • 2007 – HP and Stanford began collaborating on Ethane—the predecessor to OpenFlow2008 – HP demonstrates hardware-based OpenFlow switch at ACM SIGCOMM2008-2012 - HP Labs forms team to focus on OpenFlow and contributes to the standard and publishes research2011 - HP is one of the founding members of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF)2011 – HP is a member of InCNTRE established to ensure multi-vendor OpenFlow Interoperability
  • 95% in research test bedTest beds are modest sized networks with 5 – 20 switchesNearly all are using the NOX controllerMany use LLDP and STP in their OpenFlow networksSome are looking forward to future deployments with 100,000+ users and 1,000+ switches

  • At the foundation of this diagram is the FlexNetwork architecture, our unified architecture across the data center campus and branch. Now, we want to virtualize this infrastructure and make it programmable and the way we do that is by having an end-to-end control plane. We are able to do this with our history of intellectual property and innovations like the intelligent resilient framework (IRF) where we were able to create a control plane across multiple switches and separate that from the data forwarding plane, or wireless LAN controllers having that single control plane across multiple access points and separate that from the data forwarding plane, or our leadership in OpenFlow innovation. This is going to allow us to make the entire network infrastructure programmable so that we can create that multi-tenant environment and tailor the network delivery of applications from the cloud data center to the user.

  • The Challenge with Networks Today Proliferation of Network Protocols • Increased complexity − OPEX is increasing while CAPEX remains the same − Complex configurations are error prone Difficulty Innovating • Closed and proprietary solutions • Modeling large networks is challenging • Applications and Networks are viewed as black boxes to each other2 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

  • What is software-defined networking (SDN)?An emerging network architecture Abstraction of control plane from forwarding hardware Applications • Network control plane as a centralized software program • Centralized intelligence of network topology Control Plane Network API • Dynamic and programmable network, interaction with applications • Implemented via variety of methods including OpenFlow protocol Network OS Key Benefits • Provides opportunity for rapid innovation in networking • Use cases for all types of networks including Enterprise Campus, Service Provider, Cloud, Data Center • Can enable simplified management through network virtualization Infrastructure SDN Model3 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

  • What is OpenFlow? Protocol for direct access to switch forwarding plane • Controller or control software uses Controller Core Core OpenFlow protocol to provide programmable interface to switches & Switch Switches Firewall Net Apps Agg IPS routers Switches • Open standard defined by the Open Edge Switches Edge Switches Networking Foundation (ONF) Wireless APs4 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

  • Why OpenFlow-based SDN? Service Provider OpenFlow is a standards based protocol Research • Ensures vendor interoperability Public Cloud • Avoid vendor-lock in Campus • Complements existing network technologies Networks Private Cloud Designed from ground-up to enable SDNs Traditional • Broadest industry adoption and support Data Center • Simplifies implementing a programmable network5 © Copyright 2012 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.
