Big Switch Networks Switch Light OSSwitch Light™ OS* is an SDN operating system that is ideal for building next-generation data-center fabrics. Based on Open Network Linux (ONL), the open-source Linux operating system, Switch Light OS brings modern server or compute models to the network and allows you to adopt a disaggregated-software/hardware solution. It provides powerful automation capabilities that can significantly reduce your operating costs.
Switch Light OS uses ONIE to install onto on-board flash memory and includes standard ONL features such as:
- Debian Linux kernel
- Set of device drivers and installation scripts
- A net-boot-capable, zero-touch networking bootloader
- Enhanced features that optimize headless switch operations
- Ability to increase performance by minimizing writes to flash memory
Big Switch Networks Big Tap Monitoring FabricBig Tap™ Monitoring Fabric* is an innovative network monitoring solution that allows you to tap traffic anywhere in the network and deliver it to troubleshooting, network monitoring, application-performance monitoring or security tools. It offers a practical, cost-effective entry point for SDN and provides optimal visibility and scalability.
At the core of the Big Tap Monitoring Fabric is the Big Tap Controller. This software compiles user-defined policies into optimized flows that are programmed into the forwarding ASICs of "non-OS" switches running the Switch Light™ OS.
