    4242__Deployment to new buildings/Preparation for IU UITS building moves:__ We are continuing deployments to new switches and new buildings. Adding two IU-purchased HP switches to the E2 and Informatics buildings. We are also planning on a major move of users this August and September as most IU IT staff will be moving into a new building or to space freed up by other moves. We are planning to make sure current OF users remain connected and are looking for opportunities to enable more users to be added to OpenFlow networks.

    44 __Testlab deployments:__ We are working with 3-4 new vendor switches in our testlab. We are running preexisting (oftest) and newly developed test code against the switches to verify their ability to function for projects like FlowScale and for general deployment where we want the flexibility to handle as many types of applications and experiments as possible.

    53 __FlowScale (Load Balancer Application)__: We have completed the initial coding of a loadbalancer application that utilizes OpenFlow switches. The initial deployment will allow Indiana University to distribute traffic to multiple Intrusion Detection System devices. The initial design for a custom OpenFlow app that divides the traffic and provides a simple Web interface to control traffic. The prototype is in the test lab with a number of IDS sensors with 1 Gig interfaces. We are testing the prototype with a number of vendor's switches to make a determination of what hardware will be selected for final purchase.
