Mcusanelli (3564469) writes "HP has become the most recent platinum member of OpenDaylight, the open source software-defined networking (SDN) project sponsored by the Linux Foundation. From the article: 'The Linux Foundation, which sponsors OpenDaylight as a collaborative project, is welcoming the addition of HP to the line-up of vendors helping to lead OpenDaylight -- which already includes Brocade, Cisco, Citrix, Ericsson, IBM, Juniper, Microsoft and Red Hat as platinum members -- as a sign of industry convergence around OpenDaylight as the SDN platform of choice. "We are seeing all the major players aligning their SDN strategies around OpenDaylight. HP will be another galvanizing force for the project and industry, bringing the spirit of partnership and collaboration that has made them so successful," Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight, said in a statement.'"

    Right, and right now it is not software that defines networking?

    So right now hardware defines some networking components, with some software embedded and this will do what, define hardware that can run any software to do anything on anything? How is that different from a general purpose computer and how will the software know about hardware components without some software inside those components?

    Will software replace cables, switches, hubs, routers? Will software float through software ether powered by software?

    Will software replace software? Will it be softer software? Will they put software inside software so we can software while we software?

    Smart guns, carbon fiber everywhere, software + hardware being replaced by software. The future is /. homepage.
