“Open Network Linux” could boost viability of vendor-neutral switches

The Facebook-led Open Compute Project has spent the past year building an “open” switch that can boot nearly any type of networking software, giving customers more alternatives to proprietary switch vendors such as Cisco.
Intel, Broadcom, Mellanox and Cumulus Networks jumped on board last November, contributing specifications and software that will bring the project closer to a finished design. They weren’t alone, though: Software-defined networking vendor Big Switch Networks, in January, donated what it calls Open Network Linux (ONL) to the project.
