Open Ethernet – Maximize Your Data Center Return on Investment

Open Ethernet breaks the paradigm of traditional switch systems, eliminating vendor lock-in. Instead of forcing end users to use the specific software that is provided by the switch vendor, Open Ethernet offers the flexibility to use any software on top of Ethernet switches, thereby re-gaining control of the network, and optimizing utilization, efficiency and overall return on investment.

Open Ethernet adopts the same principles as standard open solutions for servers and storage, and applies them to the world of networking infrastructure. It encourages an eco-system of open source, standard network solutions. These solutions can then be easily deployed into the modern data center across network equipment that eases management and ensures full interoperability.
