The Linux Foundation’s latest open source project DENT targets enterprise edge networking software with support from Amazon, Cumulus Networks, and Mellanox, among other member companies.
The group aims to bring together silicon vendors, original design manufacturers, system integrators, and original equipment manufacturers. Its goal is to build a new standardized network operating system (NOS) for distributed enterprise, campus, and remote and branch office locations with the retail industry as its initial use case.
DENT will use the Linux Kernel, Switchdev, and other Linux-based projects as the basis for the open source NOS, and Amazon will lead the effort to develop the initial seed code.
