The First Open vSwitch VXLAN Patch is In

http://openvswitch.org/pipermail/dev/2011-October/012051.html

This is roughly 6 weeks after the draft was made public.  Of course, the standardization process will probably change a few things, but it’s great to be able to have something tangible now.  And, as I’ve mentioned before, Open vSwitch should already support NVGRE.

    Now that’s what I call “feature velocity”. One of the nice things about software switching with x86 at the edge of the network.

    • Seeing your comment here made me go check what you’re up to now, Brad.

      Dell, rather fortuitously, now makes both x86 servers and hardware switches. That makes for some interesting possibilities of intelligence in virtual switches at the edge cooperating with physical switches in the infrastructure.

  2. Hi there.

    I’m amazed by this speedy release. I see multicast is not implemented yet, though. Is there any storm control or similar mechanism implemented here?
