     22__S4.a Complete on-campus experimental and production deployment plans for Spiral 4__: The on-campus and production deployment plans are complete. A summary of the [Attachment:spiral4_deploy plan.pdf, deployment plan] is posted on this wiki.

     24Most of the deployment has already been deployed including:
     25 * Production switches in multiple buildings deployed using a commercial controller (BigSwitch)
     26 * Experimental testbed with Planetlab, ProtoGENI and GpENI connection
     27 * Production deployment of the [http://flowscale.openflowhub.com, FlowScale] load balancer system deployed to serve the IU IDS system
     28 * Experiment testbed constructed to host Layer 3 experimentation using RouteFlow
     29 
     30Steps that still need to take before the end of Spiral 4:
     31 * Additional switches in the testlab available through GENI
     32 * Additional FlowScale deployment to cover the IUPUI campus in Indianapolis
     33 * Tools to help in the troubleshooting of OpenFlow networks and contollers

     37__FlowScale__  The FlowScale loadbalancer has been deployed in production and released to the public under an Apache 2.0 licence. FlowScale replicates the functionality in load balancing​ appliances but using a Top of Rack (ToR) switch to distribute traffic. Using software to handle the control plane specification but switch hardware to do the forwarding gives both great flexibility and allows for low cost, high throughput deployments. It also allows innovation in the selection and routing of traffic and a building block service that can be integrated with other systems.
