New Open Source Resources on Intel® Network Builders Website
As part of the Intel® Network Builders website update, we have added in a new section under the Network Technologies tab called Open Source.
Open source organizations foster industry-wide collaboration and innovation on technologies that propel the industry forward. Intel is a leading contributor to a number of open source projects within the NFV and SDN area. Intel's sponsorship of these open source projects includes platinum membership in FD.io, OpenDaylight, OpenStack, and OPNFV as well as membership in open source projects such as DPDK and Open vSwitch.*
Intel Network Builders, with its active ecosystem, is the perfect place for partners and end user members to gain access to a wide range of supporting documentation for the open source work that Intel engineers are involved in. Here you will find each open source project with its own specific area of focus, and learn more about Intel's individual contributions to each one.
This information will help you understand how to make use of Intel's contributions and how this translates into more efficient and optimized use of your infrastructure leading to an enhanced and improved end customer experience.
