Erlang and OpenFlow: A Match Made in the Cloud!


By Erlang Central | Published: March 18, 2013



How our view of networking must evolve to address the multi-core crisis!
I’ll be describing LINC: an Open Source OpenFlow switching platform developed in Erlang, intended for use with the OTP. I will also introduce OpenFlow, the Open Network Foundation, and the community around LINC called FlowForwarding.org.
Talk objectives: Spark debate and interest in solving networking challenges in ultra-scale computing platforms like Erlang/OTP and Scala/AKKA.
Target audience: The Erlang/OTP community and emerging ultra-scale computing enthusiasts.
