1ONS 2017 Tracks Progress in Open Source Networking Projects
The Open Networking Summit (ONS) hosted by the Linux Foundation in Santa Clara, California, has emerged to become one of the leading networking events in the industry. At this year’s event, which is taking place April 3-7, there were multiple announcements about new open-source networking efforts, helping to advance the state of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) technologies. Among the announcements was the debut of the OPNFV Danube project release, providing operators with new NFV capabilities. The ONOS Project also debuted a new release at ONS, providing network operators with advanced SDN features. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the big announcements out of the ONS 2017 event.

8Google Defines its SDN Edge with Espresso
At ONS, Google engineers Amin Vahdat and Bikash Koley detailed Google’s peering edge SDN architecture with a project dubbed Espresso. “Our fundamental design philosophy is that the network should be treated as a large-scale distributed system and leverage the same control infrastructure we developed for Google’s compute and storage systems,” the engineers wrote in a blog post.
