Policy is an increasingly important area of research and development. There is a growing interest in using policy-based systems for IT automation. Witness DevOps tools such as Puppet, Chef, CFengine, and Ansible. Software Defined Networking is another area with policy based R&D taking place. Much like DevOps and Software Defined Networking, policy will be driven by Open Source platforms. In this talk we will discuss OpFlex, an open distributed control system based on a declarative policy information model. OpFlex is an incubated project within the OpenDaylight project under active development. This talk will cover the OpFlex project in OpenDaylight, current status and future direction, along with an overview of how OpFlex can integrate with an IaaS platform such as OpenStack.
