Kytos, an open source SDN Platform

Project description

Experimental Tag Release License Build status Code coverage Code-quality score

WARNING: As previously announced on our communication channels, the Kytos project will enter the “shutdown” phase on May 31, 2021. After this date, only critical patches (security and core bug fixes) will be accepted, and the project will be in “critical-only” mode for another six months (until November 30, 2021). For more information visit the FAQ at <https://kytos.io/faq>. We’ll have eternal gratitude to the entire community of developers and users that made the project so far.

Kytos SDN Platform is the fastest way to deploy an SDN Network. With this you can deploy a basic OpenFlow controller or your own controller. Kytos was designed to be easy to install, use, develop and share Network Apps (NApps). Kytos is incredibly powerful and easy, its modular design makes Kytos a lightweight SDN Platform.

Kytos is conceived to ease SDN controllers development and deployment. It was motivated by some gaps left by common SDN solutions. Moreover, it has strong tights with a community view, so it is centered on the development of applications by its users. Thus, our intention is not only to build a new SDN solution, but also to build a community of developers around it, creating new applications that benefit from the SDN paradigm.

The project was born in 2014 and has been under active development since 2016.
