The BISDN Linux package for data center networks with three freely combinable elements:- baseboxd itself is a controller daemon integrating whitebox switches into Linux.- The CAWR controller (Capability AWare Routing) is an optional shim OpenFlow controller that creates a giant switch abstraction from a set of whitebox switches. It implements multi-path routing and multi-chassis link aggregation.- We offer the BISDN Linux package, a Yocto-based operating system for selected whitebox switches.
We provide OpenStack integration of baseboxd via a neutron ML2 plugin.Basebox can either run directly on the switch or in a separate controller machine. The solution addresses issues of orchestration, flexibilization and further automation in various scenarios.baseboxd is using the OpenFlow Data Path Abstraction (OF-DPA 2.0), such as ONL, and essentially translates OpenFlow into Linux netlink and vice versa. baseboxd supports any OF-DPA 2.0 whitebox switch.
