Here is a link to a video describing the demo I gave at today’s research network meeting: This SDN application is built to detect DDOS attacks from router sflow data and to mitigate them with OpenFlow rules in near real-time.
Router: Brocade MLXe – Hybrid port OpenFlow – Brocade MLX Series core routers deliver unprecedented scale and performance, high reliability, and operational efficiency for the most demanding service provider and enterprise networks. Built on a programmable architecture with high-density 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE), 40 GbE, and 10 GbE routing, these routers meet massive bandwidth demands, while maximizing ROI. Leading OpenFlow 1.3 scale in hybrid port mode provides a seamless transition to SDN for increased network agility and programmatic control.
Data: sFlow® is an industry standard technology for monitoring high speed switched networks. It gives complete visibility into the use of networks enabling performance optimization, accounting/billing for usage, and defense against security threats. sFlow.org drives the widespread adoption of sFlow by end users, network equipment and software vendors.
sFlow.com is an InMon Corp. business unit using Software Defined Networking (SDN) and traffic analytics to build performance optimization solutions for cloud data centers.
The trend towards cloud computing, virtualization, and software defined networking technologies is being driven by the promise of flexibility and controllability which will allow a network to automatically respond to changing demand. To deliver on this promise, scalable, real-time measurements and analytics are essential. sFlow.com delivers automated cloud optimization solutions that leverage InMon’s pervasive sFlow measurement technology and partnerships withvendors. These solutions ensure agile, efficient and robust delivery of services, allowing customers to fully realize the benefits of their cloud investment.
InMon invented the industry standard sFlow measurement technology and freely licenses sFlow to over 40 leading vendors, including: A10, Alcatel-Lucent, Arista, Brocade, Cisco, Cumulus, Dell, Edge-Core, Extreme, F5, Hewlett-Packard, Hitachi, Huawei, IBM, Juniper, Mellanox, NEC, Pica8, Quanta, ZTE, and ZyXEL.
SDN controller: sFlow-RT™ incorporates InMon’s asynchronous sFlow analytics engine (patent pending), delivering real-time visibility in Software Defined Networking (SDN) stacks and enabling new classes of performance aware SDN application such as load balancing and DDoS protection.
