Abstract: Software Defined Networking (SDN) is emerging network architecture. The principle of separating control plane and data plane has opened up many opportunities for researchers to deploy new innovations. The central and single point of managing the whole network is SDN controller. This gives the system the weaknesses of being a single point of failure. This issue of failure can be solved using a cluster which is comprised of multiple instances of a SDN controller. In case of failure of one instance, other will come into play and manages the system. We have taken OpenDayLight (ODL) SDN controller which is open of the largest Opensource and industry oriented SDN controller as a point of study for making use of clustering. This paper aims to provide the implementation of clusters of ODL SDN controller. Advantages and Issues of clustering in ODL are also discussed.
