Course Description
In this course, students will receive an introduction to Open vSwitch (OVS), a multilayer virtual switch commonly deployed in large-scale computing environments. Beginning with an overview of the OVS software architecture, this class will cover the basics of packet processing and how OVS is integrated within a virtualized server. Students will get more than 5 hours of training and hands-on experience using the common command-line tools to, for example, query and configure switch settings. In addition, students will review OVS in the context of common use cases, including enabling network virtualization capabilities for cloud computing. At the end of the class, students will have a strong foundational understanding of OVS from a software level and its growing role in the landscape of large-scale computing.
