In the data center, the ecosystem of bare metal network switches running Linux is growing rapidly. A key enabler of this ecosystem is the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE), which provides an environment for installing any network OS on disparate hardware platforms.

In his presentation, Curt Brune will describe the benefits of ONIE, explain why Linux is the foundation of ONIE, review how ONIE works, cover the current state of the ONIE project and discuss the future challenges and directions for ONIE.


- ONIE ships on hardware from DELL, HP, Penguin, SuperMicro and many others
- Based on a modern Linux kernel and BusyBox
- Provides an environment for installing any network OS
- Automate large scale data center switch provisioning
- Manage your switches like you manage your Linux servers
