Microsoft SONiC and Barefoot Networks At The OCP Summit

From an article at The Register regarding Microsoft’s SONiC network operating systems: Microsoft coordinated a bunch of announcements at the Open Compute Project summit this week, centred around its SONiC open switch software platform. SONiC, as you may recall, is Microsoft’s Debian based network operating system which it has donated to the Open Compute Project. Worth noting SONiC has now attracted Barefoot Networks: Barefoot’s another fan, folding SONiC into a variety of its Tofino-based bare metal switches.
