07:09 EDTCSCO, FBFacebook introduces Wedge, FBOSS
Facebook posted on its engineering blog that "Over the last three years, we’ve been working within the Open Compute Project to apply this principle to open designs for racks, servers, storage boxes, and motherboards. And last year, we kicked off a new networking project within OCP, with a goal of developing designs for OS-agnostic top-of-rack switches. This was the first step toward disaggregating the network – separating hardware from software, so we can spur the development of more choices for each – and our progress so far has exceeded our expectations... Today we’re pleased to unveil the next step: a new top-of-rack network switch, code-named 'Wedge,' and a new Linux-based operating system for that switch, code-named 'FBOSS.' These projects break down the hardware and software components of the network stack even further, to provide a new level of visibility, automation, and control in the operation of the network. By combining the hardware and software modules together in new ways, 'Wedge' and 'FBOSS' depart from current networking design paradigms to leverage our experience in operating hundreds of thousands of servers in our data centers. In other words, our goal with these projects was to make our network look, feel, and operate more like the OCP servers we've already deployed, both in terms of hardware and software." Reference Link
