Best of Interop 2014 Product Award Winners

The Best of Interop awards recognize innovation in nine categories, including networking, storage, cloud, and security.

The Best of Interop Awards recognize innovative hardware and software that represent technological advancement in a specific category. The Interop judging team poured through 129 submissions in nine categories, including networking, mobility, and security. This year we chose to mix this up a little by creating a separate storage category and adding a whole new software-defined networking (SDN) category. Awards were also presented for Grand Award winner, Best Startup, and Audience Choice. See who took home the prize this year.

Grand Award and SDN

Product: OpenDaylight Hydrogen

OpenDaylight Hydrogen won judges over because it not only embodies a strong product, but also represents what can occur with industry-wide collaboration. Hydrogen is a modular SDN controller that can support any number of southbound interfaces to control both hardware and software networking products as well as northbound interfaces accessible to a variety of SDN-minded applications. OpenDaylight enables innovation in SDN with far-reaching impact, because developers can focus on building applications that leverage SDN, leaving the mechanics of carrying out programmatic instructions to Hydrogen and its successors.
