The OpenSwitch community is an open community started by charter members offering valuable contributions to the community, with the goal of advancing the state of the art of open networking. The community supports and nurtures efforts, aids OpenSwitch adoption, and facilitates growth of a healthy ecosystem of developers and users.
It is not a secret that the current vertically-integrated networking switch models are not perceived as a good fit for web-scale data center needs. OpenSwitch serves as a catalyst for accelerating the move to disaggregated networking switches while enabling developers with the tools they need to break free from the limitations of integrated switches, and take control of their networks to better serve their business needs.
Charter contributors to OpenSwitch are Hewlett Packard, Accton, Broadcom, Intel, Qosmos, and Dell EMC. You are invited to join the growing OpenSwitch community to benefit from member experiences and contributions, make your own contributions, and help guide the OpenSwitch community.
