|Basic ICT technology is steadily evolving as the relative importance of converting development to open source and to software increases, and it is dealing with new conditions as the environment surrounding it changes.
As the temporary mood of receptiveness that once greeted SDN and cloud technology has peaked and attention has focused on the development of reliable technologies, the offering of solutions based on specific usage methods and conversion into products have accelerated. Cases of service providers and corporate users adopting these solutions and products for business use are increasing.
Meanwhile, technical innovations in SDN and cloud technology through open source software development have advanced as development community members have collaborated and shared insights to achieve a development process that would be hard for a single company to realize from a cost, human resources and technical perspective. This has sped up technical development and caused an ecosystem to form, and as a result those technical innovations have become de facto standards.
Okinawa Open Laboratory is an internationally unique research and development organization leading these trends based on the themes of use cases, open source and fusing SDN and cloud technologies during the three years since its founding.
To achieve these themes, we are engaged in activities including open “technological development, test bed configuration and use, and human resource development and interaction.”
As one aspect of those activities, since 2013 we have been holding the original international event Okinawa Open Days, which completely harmonizes SDN and OpenStack, with the extensive cooperation of members of the SDN Japan Executive Committee and of the OpenStack User Group.
This year, bearing in mind the grand sum of Okinawa Open Laboratory’s activities over three years, as an Asian hub location-wise and in other senses of the word, we will create an opportunity for networking among people from Japan and abroad, and particularly from the countries of Asia, on SDI technology centered on open source software development.
As an international conference to create opportunities for information dissemination and discussion, Okinawa Open Days 2015 will be held in Okinawa for the five days from Dec. 14 to 18, a significantly longer period than past events.
We are putting together the following program for Okinawa Open Days 2015 in order to realize the above concept.
• Examples of utilization and issues based on use cases
• Community and international interaction
• Report on three years of achievements by Okinawa Open Laboratory
• General track (aimed at decision-makers with an interest in and high utilization rate of ICT, at marketing managers and at engineers who have experience with SDN/cloud technology):
• Special track (aimed at engineers who have experience with SDN/cloud technology and wish to deepen their skills):
This year, the special track will be held from Dec. 14 to 18, the general track will be held on Dec. 17 to 18.
• Use case research (SDSG)
We look forward to seeing you there.
