OpenDaylight operates under the auspices of the Linux Foundation, no stranger itself to running large scale collaborative projects. Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation, told Enterprise Networking Planet that OpenDaylight is now accelerating at a rapid rate.
“There is code now coming in that delivers a broad set of functionality,” Zemlin said. “We’ve now got members and non-members contributing stuff and people scratching their own itches around security and other components.”
Zemlin noted that the companies and individuals that now contribute to OpenDaylight form a broad and diverse community.
“We’re also aiming to build an ecosystem around the platform,” Zemlin said. “When we have our release in December, companies will be building products and services based on OpenDaylight.”
