    I believe it is a problem that the marketing types of the major product vendors are, once again, conveniently ignoring. Just like everything else, they are all breathing each others helium and making each other feel oh so good about. Until totally secure controllers are made, that might need to be put on proprietary and secret operating systems to keep hackers at bay, I would rather distribute my control around as I have for years. I have never liked the single vendor approach, and I am not going to start today.

    Thanks for your thoughts. The security of SDN controllers isn't necessarily about single-vendor approaches, especially when it comes to OpenFlow. The ideal OpenFlow network would be vendor-agnostic. The market isn't there yet, but that's the intent.
