Hi I am researching on integration of OpenStack and ODL. I am presenting a seminar and your contribution would be a great help for me.
If i have physical switches from different vendors in my environment and I have ML2 mechanism drivers for those switches. Suppose these physical switches support OpenFlow. By Introducing ODL into my infrastructure, can i remove the mechanism drivers for these switches.
Does we need the drivers for physical switches to work with ODL. Does ODL has capability to create ports on physical switches and attaching them to network ports on hypervisors.
How ODL will manage topologgy and path database ?
