Detailed Description

Ryu is an Operating System for Software Defined Networking.

Ryu aims to provide a logically centralized control and well defined API that make it easy for operators to create new network management and control applications. Currently, Ryu manages network devices by using OpenFlow. You can say that Ryu is an OpenFlow Controller.

For Software Defined Networking or OpenFlow, please refer to Open Networking Foundation
