The founding members are: Deutsche Telekom, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Verizon, and Yahoo. Almost immediately Cisco, Brocade, Juniper Networks, HP, Broadcom, Ciena, Riverbed Technology, Force10, Citrix, Dell, Ericsson, IBM, Marvell, NEC, Netgear, NTT and VMware also joined. Their goal is the adoption of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and an open source standard called OpenFlow. One notable name is missing from the list ... Vyatta."
