OpenDaylight (ODL) is an open source SDN platform designed to serve a broad set of use cases and end user types, mainly service providers, large enterprises, and academic institutions. Uniquely, ODL provides a plethora of network services in all domains--data center, WAN, NREN, metro and access.
IBM loves Apache Spark. It’s training its engineers on it, it’s contributing to the project, and it’s building many of its big data products on top of the open source platform so IBM’s enterprise customers can use its powerful tools.
SK Telecom envisions transforming itself into a platform company, making the mobile network as a platform where new services can be created and supported including traditional telco applications, media apps, streaming and IoT applications.
With so many technologies, tools, and techniques to keep track of, it can be hard to know where to start learning new skills. This series on next-gen cloud technologies aims to help you get up to speed on the important projects and products in emerging and rapidly changing areas such as containers, container orchestration, software-defined networking, and more.
At the recent Embedded Linux Conference and OpenIoT Summit, Mozilla Technical Evangelist Dietrich Ayala proposed a simple and affordable solution to home automation: A discarded smartphone can handle some of the most useful home automation tasks without requiring expensive hubs and sensors -- or risking data security in the cloud.
“With a smartphone you can detect motion, sound, presence, and the absence of radio services,” said Ayala in his presentation, “Turning Sensors into Signals: Humanizing IoT with Old Smartphones and the Web.”

This Week in Linux News: Apache Foundation Founder Becomes Hyperledger Executive Director, Linux 4.6 Has Arrived, & More
PLUMgrid INC, which provides tools for OpenStack cloud providers, has been participating in the open source community since the company was founded in 2011. It started working with the Linux kernel community to create a distributed, programmable data plane and contributed to eBPF (extended Berkeley Packet Filter), a key component in building networks that are agile, fast and secure. eBPF has been upstreamed since Linux kernel version 3.16.
Apprenda today announced that it now offers a commercial distribution of Kubernetes, the well-known tool for deploying and managing containerized applications. Along with the new product, Apprenda will also offer enterprise support subscriptions to companies running Kubernetes.
If you cycle the clock back to 2010, when Rackspace and NASA announced an effort to create a sophisticated cloud computing infrastructure that could compete with proprietary offerings, it would have been hard to forecast how successful the OpenStack platform would become. OpenStack has won over countless companies that are deploying it and backing it, and it has its own foundation.
Few would claim that the year-old fork and legal dispute between rival Arduino camps is healthy for the open source hardware community. Yet, so far, the platform remains strong, despite growing competition from open source Linux SBCs like the Raspberry Pi. In large part, this is due to the rising interest in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, which dovetails nicely with the low-power, gadget-oriented MCU-based platform.
Docker was the flame that catalyzed innovation in application development, according to Scott Johnston, senior vice president of product management and design at Docker. However, that success was entirely unforeseen.
"I wish I could say that we had a premeditated mindset three years ago when we released Docker," Johnston said in his keynote at last month's Collaboration Summit. "But we did not." Looking back, he sees three main reasons for Docker’s success: Accessibility, Portability, and Openness.
Linus Torvalds this week released the final code for version 4.6 of the Linux kernel. This release comes two months after the previous 4.5 version and has gone through seven release candidates.
“The 4.6 kernel on the whole was a fairly big release - more commits than we've had in a while,” Torvalds wrote in his release notes on the LKML mailing list. “But it all felt fairly calm despite that.”
OPNFVs first Plugfest was held at CableLabs facility in Louisville, CO. This event, which focused on deployment and integration of OPNFV as well as Virtual Network Function (VNF) applications, was open to both OPNFV members and non-members.
