Open vSwitch - Multilayer Virtual Switch

  •        689

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.

ZeroTierOne - A Smart Ethernet Switch for Earth

  •    C++

ZeroTier is a smart programmable Ethernet switch for planet Earth. It replaces the physical LAN/WAN boundary with a virtual one, allowing devices of any type at any location to be managed as if they all reside in the same cloud region or data center. All traffic is encrypted end-to-end and takes the most direct path available for minimum latency and maximum performance. The goals and design of ZeroTier are inspired by among other things the original Google BeyondCorp paper and the Jericho Forum.

kernel virtual machine

  •    C

KVM (for Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux on x86 hardware containing virtualization extensions (Intel VT or AMD-V). It consists of a loadable kernel module, kvm.ko, that provides the core virtualization infrastructure and a processor specific module, kvm-intel.ko or kvm-amd.ko. Using KVM, one can run multiple virtual machines running unmodified Linux or Windows images. Each virtual machine has private virtualized hardware: a network card, disk, graphics adapter, etc.

pms-docker - Plex Media Server Docker repo, for all your PMS docker needs.

  •    Shell

With our easy-to-install Plex Media Server software and your Plex apps, available on all your favorite phones, tablets, streaming devices, gaming consoles, and smart TVs, you can stream your video, music, and photo collections any time, anywhere, to any device. The bridge networking creates an entirely new network within the host and runs containers within there. This network is connected to the physical network via an internal router and docker configures this router to forward certain ports through to the containers within. The host networking uses the IP address of the host running docker such that a container's networking appears to be the host rather than separate. The macvlan networking creates a new virtual computer on the network which is the container. For purposes of setting up a plex container, the host and macvlan are very similar in configuration.

ovn-kubernetes - Kubernetes integration for OVN

  •    Go

This document describes how to use Open Virtual Networking with Kubernetes 1.8.0 or later. This document assumes that you have installed Open vSwitch by following INSTALL.rst or by using the distribution packages such as .deb or.rpm. OVN provides network virtualization to containers. In the "overlay" mode, OVN can create a logical network amongst containers running on multiple hosts. In this mode, OVN programs the Open vSwitch instances running inside your hosts. These hosts can be bare-metal machines or vanilla VMs.
