We saw a clear customer need for a usable pure play open source distribution not tied to any product strategy that will allow customers to innovate themselves
MONTREAL, QC, CANADA (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
Today, Inocybe Technologies Inc., the #1 pure play OpenDaylight company, is introducing its new distribution based on OpenDaylight Helium. After being significantly involved in the Helium release, Inocybe is making this OpenDaylight distribution available for download and also offers commercial support. This OpenDaylight distribution builds from the community source code but is tested through continuous deployment and focused on usability, documentation and ease of use.
“While many established vendors are embedding OpenDaylight in their products, we saw a clear customer need for a usable pure play open source distribution not tied to any product strategy that will allow customers to innovate themselves,” said Mathieu Lemay, president and chief executive officer of Inocybe Technologies. “In Helium, we focused on docs, user-interface and overall usability and code quality. However, we still have work to do and we look forward to the Lithium release. Our current and future customers are sponsoring our upstream commitment to this important project.”
Inocybe Technologies is focused on innovation and helping promote and improve OpenDaylight’s ecosystem. "What Inocybe is doing with OpenDaylight as a distribution gives users the ultimate control and choice over their SDN platform. For those who are looking for a standalone OpenDaylight distribution to take and modify as they see fit, Inocybe fits that bill," said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. "We are encouraged by this step and believe it shows another sign of maturity for the project."
Inocybe’s OpenDaylight distribution is a pure play distribution with no vendor lock-in but also provides the following advantages over the community download:
- Automatic Updates – While we provide downloadable images at every OpenDaylight release, our support customers can always enjoy the latest features through continuous automatic updates.
- Tested Binaries – We continuously test our binaries and make them available to our support subscription subscribers.
- Virtual Appliance – Our distribution is running in a Docker container available pre-packaged with our own CoreOS-based distribution making clustering, and updates easily through the use of virtual appliances.
- Add-ons Management – OpenDaylight Helium release introduced a-la-carte features that can be selected at download time. All these features can be turned on or off as required without changing the packaging or requiring additional downloads.
Inocybe’s OpenDaylight distribution is available for download on Inocybe’s website at: http://www.inocybe.com/opendaylight. Support subscriptions are also available at 1000$/month per supported instances.
