Network virtualization and software defined networking present new opportunities for data center design. However, they also impose new requirements to fully realize that vision such as greater levels of visibility, remote control, and programmability. Open vSwitch takes advantage of its unique position on the edge of the network to bring together the power and flexibility of software with the rich information available to the hypervisor.

Starting with an overview of the Open vSwitch design and features, the presentation will also cover uses, the broader ecosystem, and future directions.
