Why Facebook Wedge Is Revolutionary

Facebook’s Open Compute Project (OCP) switch, code-named Wedge, likely won’t displace entrenched networking vendors like Cisco. But here’s why it will be revolutionary: It addresses the need for application-specific networking. Wedge uses commodity hardware in the form of a microserver plus an open-source operating system code-named FBOSS. Wedge and FBOSS  give networking teams the flexibility to create custom switching platforms for specific uses, from both the hardware and software aspects.
