SONiC – Software for Open Networking in the Cloud
SONiC is a Linux-based open source network operating system that runs on ASICs and switches from multiple vendors. It addresses the requirements of data centers and cloud-service providers for flexibility, management, and accelerated evolution of the ecosystem. SONiC offers a wide spectrum of network functions and enables the user to control all employed devices and define their tasks. This open source toolkit decouples hardware and software to overcome the limitations of network devices.
Why choose SONiC
Flexible open source implementation to manage and control complex cloud operations
SONiC is built on Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) to enable swift hardware exchanges to adapt smoothly to innovation requirements
A proficient solution to break monolithic switch software into multiple containerized components, enabling SONiC to be scalable and extremely extensible
Simple managing at scale, it provides monitoring and diagnostic capabilities, and enables fine-grained failure recovery and in-service upgrades with zero downtime
SONiC has gained wide industry support that includes major network chip vendors, and the community is actively adding new extensions and advanced capabilities to SAI releases
