Subject Re: [GSOC] Community Bonding Period

Sure, Sebgoa.

Hi all :-)

My name is Nguyen Anh Tu, a Computer Network and Telecommunication student
at Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam. My major is
computer networking, but I also have a strongly interesting in distribute
computing, storage system and virtualization technology.

This summer, I'll do the project named "Add Xen/XCP support for native GRE
SDN controller", jira ticket
This project aims to make Xen/XCP work with the native SDN controller in
CloudStack, firstly try with XCP 1.6.1. I have to look around some of the
other SDN implementations, try them and then make sure the native SDN
module is implemented like a regular SDN solution. Further work, I'll try
to integrate an Openflow controller (Floodlight, Beacon, POX, NOX) to
CloudStack. My full proposal can be found here:

I have created my accounts on JIRA, review board, Github and wiki.

IRC nickname: tuna1
Skype nickname: ng.tuna
JIRA, wiki username: tuna
Github: ng.tuna


Looking forward to great summer. Very happy to join this community :-)
