Hewlett-Packard (HP) has recently launched a new open source network operating system (NOS), OpenSwitch. The home-grown open NOS is supported by Accton Technology Corporation, Arista, Broadcom, Intel, Qosmos and VMware as the initial charter contributors. The OpenSwitch NOS will be supported on HP's Altoline open network switches.

The Linux-based platform features an extensible NOS that utilizes modern development tools and offers extensive APIs and management interfaces, said HP. Developers can build on the reliable and modern architecture to create unique networking features and applications using an agile development approach for faster development and more stable applications with fewer post-release defects.

Mark Carroll, Chief Technology Officer for HP Networking
Open source software, with its collaborative community of specialized developers, accelerates innovation and improves the stability of the software platform, providing organizations with a more powerful infrastructure to support their specific business requirements.

Thibaut Bechetoille, CEO at Qosmos
We are pleased to be part of this new open source initiative which will accelerate innovation and improve overall quality of future networks. Qosmos will play a key role by providing the application-level traffic visibility required to optimize and protect networked assets in virtualized environments.
