Progress in opening up the network

Just six months ago, we announced our intention to expand the charter of the Open Compute Project to include networking hardware. At the time, it was our hope that we could build on the momentum we’d established in opening up server, storage, and datacenter designs and collaborate with the broader community on the development of an open, OS-agnostic top-of-rack switch. Such a switch, we believed, would enable a faster pace of innovation in the development of networking hardware; help software-defined networking continue to evolve and flourish; and ultimately provide consumers of these technologies with the freedom they need to build infrastructures that are flexible, scalable, and efficient across the entire stack.
