Facebook creating a software “switch” for Open Compute Project

Years ago, Facebook Inc. announced that it was embarking on an initiative to enable data center operators to use any number of software options after buying a vendor’s hardware. A novel idea, but little has been heard since this long- ago announcement until very recently, when Facebook announced a major development with its Open Compute Project. The Open Compute Project, the name given to this initiative by Facebook, has been successful in moving forward on defining a network switch that could be used on many operating systems to make this a reality.
