GEC3 Demo Photos and Slides

November 17th, 2008, Guido Appenzeller in OpenFlow Blog

Two weeks ago we had a great demo of OpenFlow at the third GENI Engineering Conference. Things we demonstrated included:

  • A centrally controlled OpenFlow network with OpenFlow switches deployed at Stanford, Internet2 and JGN2plus in Japan.
  • Virtual machine mobility at Stanford. You can see this in detail in the SIGCOMM Demo Video.
  • Flow Dragging. David Underhill created a fantastic UI that allows you to change the path packets take in the network by dragging the flow with the mouse to new routers an example video is shown below.
  • Virtual machine mobility within JGN2plus and between Stanford and JGN2plus. A running virtual machine was migrated across the Pacific while hosts in Japan were communicating with it. The combination of OpenFlow and our controller allowed the virtual machine to change locations and maintain connectivity without changing IP address.

The demonstration OpenFlow network incorporated switches from (in alphabetical order) Cisco, HP, Juniper and NEC.

The slides for Nick’s talk before the demo are online here.

Thanks to Glen who was the technical lead on this demo, as well as to everyone else on the 30 person team from Stanford, HP, NEC, Internet2, Cisco and Juniper who made this a success.

Updated: OpenFlow in Computerworld

October 30th, 2008, Guido Appenzeller in OpenFlow Blog

Tim Greene from Computerworld has a very nice article about OpenFlow, vendors that have implemented it and the demo at the GENI Engineering Conference. It is also up on Networkworld.

The GENI Demo just happened a few minutes ago, and it safe to say it was a huge success. We demostrated both virtual machine mobility as well as arbitrary flow routing. More exciting updates on OpenFlow coming soon.

Update: International coverage of OpenFlow in Japanese, Portuguese, Italias, Spanish, Polish and Swedish after the jump.


OpenFlow wins Best Demo Award at SIGCOMM 2008

August 21st, 2008, Guido Appenzeller in OpenFlow Blog

Today at the SIGCOMM 2008 conference in Seattle our demo of OpenFlow for virtual machine mobility won the award for the best demonstration. An abstract of the demo can be found on the SIGCOMM site here.

This demo was a huge group effort between Stanford, Cisco and HP. In the end everything worked perfectly and the response from SIGCOMM attendees was overwhelming. Congratulations to everyone who contributed including David, Glen, Brandon, David, Jad, Guido, Guru, Nick, Mendel, Monica, Masa, Miles, Adam and Bob at Stanford. Thanks to Sailesh, Valentina, Pere and Flavio at Cisco and Jean, Praveen, Sujata, Charles and Rick at HP.

We’ll have more about the demo including video and photos later.

Also congratulations to Neda, Sara, Yashar, Brandon and David to their second place for the NetFPGA demo!
