Today Brocade released v1.3 of our SDN controller. This release incorporates the OpenDaylight SR3 package, which primarily provides bug fixes. The Brocade v1.3 release also provides support for all Brocade-developed SDN applications, such as Path Explorer 1.2 and vRouter EMS applications.
You can try the latest release for free, with 60 days of free support, by downloading it here. Documentation such as user guides can be downloaded at the same time. Additional information to help you get started can be found in the Brocade DevNet Community and on GitHub.
Downloads of the Brocade Vyatta Controller have been gratifying and interesting. The largest group of downloaders so far is the VAR and SI community, with certain regions especially interested in our developer edition. There is also a very healthy mix of Enterprise users representing a wide range of verticals and use cases. Telcos and cloud service providers are typically the most advanced in their deployment timelines, and you can expect to hear more in the next few months about how they are using the Brocade controller as part of their SDN strategy.
