Evolution of OSCARS

Time 01/23/12 05:10PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

On-demand Secure Circuits and Advance Reservation System (OSCARS) has
evolved tremendously since its conception as a DOE funded project to
ESnet back in 2004. Since then, it has grown from a research project to
a collaborative open-source software project with production deployments
in several R&E networks including ESnet and Internet2. In the latest
release of OSCARS as version 0.6, the software was redesigned to
flexibly accommodate both research and production needs. It is being
used currently by several research projects to study path computation
algorithms, and demonstrate multi-layer circuit management. Just
recently, OSCARS 0.6 was leveraged to support production level bandwidth
management in the ESnet ANI 100G prototype network, SCinet at SC11 in
Seattle, and the Internet2 DYNES project. This presentation will
highlight the evolution of OSCARS, activities surrounding OSCARS v0.6
and lessons learned, and share with the community the roadmap for future
development that will be discussed within the open-source collaboration.
