OpenvSwitch / OpenVirtual Network
Open Virtual Network (OVN) is an open source project originally launched by the Open vSwitch (OVS) team at Nicira (now part of VMware) that is supported by engineers from various commercial, private, and public entities. The objective is to develop a single, standard, vendor-neutral protocol for the virtualization of network switching functions, still based around the functionality first created for VMware virtual networks. OVN’s main goal is to provide Layers 2 and 3 networking, which distinguishes it from general-purpose, software-defined networking (SDN) protocols and controllers.
