Recently ran into a very interesting video captured during the LinuxConf in Australia. This video captures the debate between John Mark Walker representing GlusterFS and Sage Weil representing Ceph. Both also represent private entetires Gluster -> Gluster Inc. that now owned by RedHat and Ceph -> Inktank.
First, I have to admit that I am quite excited about the OpenDayLight project as it promises to bring the “next penguin” despite all the arguments and roadblocks.
Certainly one may question the reason for all the hardware guys joining OpenDayLight, isn’t the ultimate goal to make network hardware to be based on “white-label” box that can be overlaid with open source (Linux based) OS that would provide all the great functionality that today enclosed in proprietary hardware of the “giants”?
