Brocade Launches Commercial Vyatta OpenDaylight SDN Controller

Kelly Herrell, VP and GM of the software networking business unit at Brocade, explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that the Vyatta controller is an SDN controller that goes beyond what is possible with just OpenFlow. The first generation of SDN controllers were typically all about the OpenFlow flow protocol. Herrell said that OpenFlow has a very limited and narrow view of what a controller can do.
