Brocade Helping Customers Accelerate their SDN Journey

Says Brocade Vyatta Controller eliminates vendor lock-in enabling customers to deliver network innovations for the new IP

Brocade said it has reinforced its commitment to helping customers accelerate their journey to open and agile Software-Defined Networking (SDN) by offering a free one-year license for its recently released Brocade Vyatta Controller.

Available as a free download, the Brocade Vyatta Controller allows enterprises and service providers to explore and vet their SDN use cases without investing in expensive and time-consuming hardware acquisitions or software integrations announced the press release. The free license provides management of up to five physical or virtual network nodes in a non-production environment and includes 60 days of free 24×7 worldwide access to the world-class Brocade Technical Assistance Center.

To promote the development of innovative network applications, Brocade also announced the Brocade Vyatta Controller Developer Edition, which provides a comprehensive set of tools—including templates, libraries, and testing environments—to help developers quickly write and test SDN applications and easily deploy them into service. The Brocade Vyatta Controller is free of proprietary extensions, so developers can be assured that their applications will run on any other OpenDaylight-based controller. In addition, developers retain full intellectual property rights to the applications they build.

“Today’s announcement further distinguishes Brocade in our deep commitment to helping customers accelerate their transition to the New IP by delivering a truly open SDN solution based on the Brocade Vyatta Controller,” said Kelly Herrell, senior vice president and general manager, Software Networking, Brocade. “Our free license model, new services that cater to both users and developers, as well as ongoing allegiance to OpenDaylight, not only remove significant barriers to implementing SDN solutions but also accelerate the time from proof-of-concept to production.”

All products and services are available today. A production license for the Brocade Vyatta Controller is priced at $100 per attached node per year including support.
