Open vSwitch - Multilayer Virtual Switch

  •        0

Open vSwitch is well suited to function as a virtual switch in VM environments. In addition to exposing standard control and visibility interfaces to the virtual networking layer, it was designed to support distribution across multiple physical servers. Open vSwitch supports multiple Linux-based virtualization technologies including Xen/XenServer, KVM, and VirtualBox.

SDN - This repo includes PowerShell scripts and VMM service templates for setting up the Microsoft Software Defined Networking (SDN) Stack using Windows Server 2016

This repo includes scripts, templates, and sample switch configurations to aid admins in deploying the Windows Server 2016 Software Defined Networking (SDN) Stack and connecting it to their existing network topologies. It also includes sample diagnostics and examples for attaching Windows Container endpoints to a virtual network in additon to other tenant workflows.The SDNExpress scripts will deploy the entire SDN Fabric including Network Controller, Software Load Balancer, and Gateway. The script will use a configuration file as input which defines the IP subnet prefixes, VLANs, credentials, Hyper-V Host servers, and BGP Peering info required by the SDN Fabric. At a minimum, a user will need to download the SDNExpress scripts to a host from which deployment will occur. The directory containing the SDNExpress scripts will need to have Read/Write permissions open for all hosts to be used in the deployment. The FabricConfig.psd1 configuration file will need to be customized for your environment and will be used by the SDNExpress.ps1 script to setup the SDN fabric resources. After the fabric resources are setup, the SDNExpressTenant.ps1 script can be run to create a sample, single-tenant, two-tier application (Web and Database) which uses default ACLs and two virtual subnets.

fuel-plugin-mellanox - Fuel plugin for Mellanox support

These features reduce CPU overhead, boost throughput, reduce latency, and enable network traffic to bypass the software switch layer (e.g. Open vSwitch). Mellanox Plugin integration with Mellanox NEO SDN Controller enables switch VLAN auto provisioning and port configuration for Ethernet and SM PKey auto provisioning for InfiniBand networks, over private VLAN networks.The Mellanox ConnectX-4 adapters family supports up to 100 Gb/s. To reach 100 Gb/s speed in your network with ConnectX-4 adapters, you must use Mellanox Ethernet / Infiniband switches supporting 100 Gb (e.g. SN2700 (ETH), SB7700 (IB)). The switch ports should be configured specifically to use 100 Gb speed. No additional configuration is required on the adapter side.
