Check out NodeFlow – a Node.js-based OpenFlow Controller

Last week, I officially announced the release of Floodlight, a Java-based OpenFlow controller, and as you might imagine, I’m always interested in new developments in the world of OpenFlow and Software-Defined Networking.  After all, projects that make SDN development easier and more accessible to a large pool of developers are essential to the emergence of an application ecosystem.


That’s why I wanted to mention NodeFlow, a Node.js-based OpenFlow controller.  Node is a fast, lightweight, and efficient server-side javascript platform based on Google’s V8 runtime and its gaining a lot of developer momentum.  While I haven’t spent a lot of time with NodeFlow (I’ve neither contributed to it nor talked with the author), it struck me as a great project and a great way to expand the community of SDN developers.

So, if you have a minute, check out NodeFlow!
