Facebook, Google, Big Switch Demonstration of Next-gen NOS-based on Open Network Linux
At the OCP Summit 2018, Facebook, Google, and Big Switch demonstrated three next-gen NOS stacks that can perform L3 networking (routing) with modular, interchangeable software and hardware components. All three networking stacks leverage ONL as the foundational platform OS.
ONL -- an OCP networking project -- is an open source Linux distribution, built for open networking switches (white-box/brite-box) from multiple vendors. It has a unique, modular architecture for pluggable 'forwarding agent' and ‘device management’ software. ONL acts as a foundational component for building Network Operating System (NOS) on top of open networking switches. ONL has a broad ecosystem of open networking vendors and is deployed by hundreds of enterprises in production data centers (through Big Switch’s SDN fabric solutions).
