ONOS home page update: final design and draft content
December 3, 2015
A couple of weeks ago we shared an early design for a new ONOS home page. Thanks to everyone who looked at that and shared their thoughts. The feedback was positive and we ended up making just a few small tweaks and the final design is below.
You can see in the design though that almost all of the text is placeholder copy. The next step is for us to figure out what exactly we want to say in each section. We’ve taken an initial pass at this and welcome any comments, questions or suggestions that you have. Below is the copy for each section.
- Headline: The Open Network Operating System (ONOS) project is building a better network
- Paragraph: ONOS is bringing the promise of software defined networking (SDN) to service providers. Today’s network experience is outdated: little innovation, expensive operation, inflexible to change. We have a vision of what networking could be — more agile for mobile and data center applications with better economics for both users and providers. The ONOS project includes an open source SDN OS platform and compelling applications and use cases for service providers.

- Headline: Get involved and join us!
- Paragraph: Leading service providers and vendors are funding and contributing to this effort. Whether you are an individual or an organization, come on-board and contribute to ONOS. There’s a lot happening with our growing community of partners, collaborators, and individuals that you can take part in. Help us with development, documentation, testing and more.

- Headline: See what all the excitement is about! Try ONOS yourself.
- Paragraph: ONOS is designed to stand up to the demands of service providers. As a cluster based operating system, it scales horizontally with network size and application demand. We have demonstrated industry leading performance with high application throughput and low event response latency. ONOS makes application programming much easier with rich northbound abstractions all while maintaining a network view for applications. A pluggable southbound interface allows control of both legacy and OpenFlow enabled devices.
