OpenSwitch NOS for Aurora switches

Taipei, Taiwan 14th of June 2016.

Netberg has ported OpenSwitch network OS to its x86 based 25G/100G Ethernet switch products.

Enterprise-grade switches power the Internet by moving data packets among cloud service providers, Internet service providers, corporate intranets and VPNs, datacenters, civil infrastructure and the Internet of Things. Traditional switches and network operating systems follow a proprietary and vertically integrated model, which does not allow vendors, operators or users the flexibility to innovate and tailor networks to meet specific business needs.

OpenSwitch allows developers to build networks that prioritize business-critical workloads and functions by removing the burdens of interoperability issues and complex licensing structures that are inherent in proprietary systems. OpenSwitch is developed collaboratively, allowing users and network operators to achieve advanced performance, flexibility and security throughout network protocols.

OpenSwitch’s elegant design enables seamless interoperability with critical enterprise-scale open source technologies such as Ansible and OpenStack and can integrate with other open source technologies including Broadcom Broadview, Grommit, LLDPD, P4, OpenVSwitch, and Quagga.

OpenSwitch also includes optional integration with SnapRoute’s open source L2/L3 stack. The SnapRoute stack is designed with the principles of a modern network stack and safe software design, is built for developer use and includes extensive operator control and instrumentation.

“By adding OpenSwitch to our NOS options, we confirm our commitment to open source innovation model and disruption of legacy technology,” – said Andrew Sapronov, CTO of Netberg. “The benefits of open networking, including simplicity, control, complete lifecycle automation and deep analytics, once reserved for hyper-scale data center operators are available to the enterprise. With OpenSwitch developers can focus on creating innovative data center networking solutions delivering the users a dramatically improved experience.”
