Mark Atwood offers an overview of the OpenSwitch platform, an open source, Linux-based network operating system (NOS) platform that utilizes modern development tools and offers extensive APIs and management interfaces. Chartered as a Linux Foundation project, with contributions from switch vendors, Brightbox vendors, and networking ASIC companies, OpenSwitch provides a fully featured control plane stack with support for layer 2 and layer 3 networking protocols. The NOS is built around a reliable architecture focusing on modularity and a central state repository, allowing developers and advanced users to develop and deploy state-of-the-art open networking.
This session is sponsored by HPE.
