Facebook Open Switching System (FBOSS)
About Facebook Open Switching System (FBOSS)
Despite having “OS” in its name, FBOSS is not a full operating system. Rather, it is a set of applications that can be run on a standard Linux OS
At a high level, we can group the applications in FBOSS into several large categories:
This means that FBOSS is not tied to a specific Linux distribution, and it is easier for developers to modify and hack on it. It is also possible to use only certain pieces of FBOSS, and build new and different applications on top of it. Our goal is to help make networking hardware that is open, and to foster a wide variety of open source software that can run on top of it.
