Open Compute Project Gets a SONiC Boost

The Open Compute Project (OCP) held its 2016 U.S summit this week, with member organizations coming forward with new technologies to advance the state of the open data center.

From a networking perspective, the single biggest new development is the contribution of the Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC). Led by Microsoft, SONiC is an effort that comes to OCP with the support of multiple vendors.
