Open SDN
This is a good starting point - the SDN is still a new technology and most of network professionals do not have hands-on experience about it. Hydrogen will provide a good chance for the starters to get familiar with SDN and play with it. I am not sure if Hydrogen will become a popular SDN offer in the market but for sure it will help to foster the new technology.

How many major SDN initiatives now?
This is another SDN supplier with considerable vendor weight behind it. Even if we end up with four or more, say Cisco Insieme, Open Switch, Open Daylight and OpenStack, that's still a major move toward standardization compared to every man for himself that's ruled the design of network equipment to date. It's just enough to generate rapid progress without disemboweling the core idea of SDN, a programmable network.
