Alibaba Joins OpenDaylight

The Alibaba Group has joined The OpenDaylight Project at the Silver level.

Alibaba's SDN-enabled infrastructure supported its record-breaking 11.11 Global Shopping Festival, which was the largest one-day online sales event in 2015. On 11.11, Alibaba attracted over 115 million buyers to its marketplaces and enabled RMB91.2 billion (US$14 billion) in GMV settled through Alipay on Alibaba’s platforms. Alibaba’s network infrastructure supported 467 million delivery orders during a 24-hour period and enabled about 140,000 peak transactions processed per second. To support all these, Alibaba’s network had to handle a surge of more than ten times the normal daily volume.

“Open Standards and Open Source are complementary and both important to the Internet industry. Nowadays, standardization helps improve interoperation, reduce costs and can increase the products’ scalability, etc. Open source is an effective way in accelerating the application of standards,” said Judy Zhu, Standardization director, Alibaba Group.
