Back in Interop, you demonstrated OpenFlow integration with Big Switch Controller. 2 questions related to this.
1. Probably can’t answer this if it isn’t released, but what release did it start in?
2. Will there be support in vEOS for OpenFlow? My main question.
As a person that likes to try out new tech, it would be nice to find a way to try OpenFlow from a vendor without having to purchase (personal financing) a new switch. I’m trying to find some way I can see what OpenFlow looks like from a vendor. I’ve used OpenVSwitch, but I want to see what the real thing looks like. I have access to various vendor routers and switches at work, but it seems that only new switches are supporting OpenFlow, which makes it difficult to try new stuff when new purchases are out of reach.
I don’t know if my company is an Arista customer, so I don’t have access to vEOS. It’s a bit confusing that a tools (vEOS) is available to try out new features, but only if you already have a real EOS box. Please make publicly available. Tools like Dynamips and Olive have been great learning tools for other vendor systems.
