Pica8 Leverages Open-vSwitch Database Protocol for Overlays

Pica8 announced that it is leveraging the Open-vSwitch (OVS) database protocol (OVSDB) to control hardware VTEPs (VXLAN Endpoints) as part of an overlay architecture and integrate with leading network virtualization systems such as MidoNet and NSX for VTEP provisioning.  This helps simplify VXLAN and Network Virtualization deployments.


“The adoption of open source software in the enterprise has become mainstream. Open networking is following on the same path and quickly gaining traction so we are very pleased to bring Midokura Enterprise MidoNet, the open source network virtualization overlay solution, to Pica8-enabled white box networking systems and be part of the modern open enterprise movement,” said Adam Johnson, VP of Business for Midokura.

“Pica8 has the most diverse set of overlay schemes available on white boxes, from NVGRE to VXLAN to MPLS via Labeled BGP,” said Rabiul Hasan, director of product line management at Pica8. “By offering users a broad choice of overlays and protocols, Pica8 ensures network investment protection and gives users all the tools they need to move toward an SDN future.”
