It is not a secret that the current vertically-integrated networking switches model is not perceived as a good fit for web-scale data center needs. OpenSwitch will serve as a catalyst for accelerating the move to disaggregated networking switches and enable developers and customers with the tools they need to break free from the limitations of integrated switches to take control of their networks and better serve their business needs.
