Open vSwitch is a production quality, multilayer open source virtual switch.  It
is designed to enable massive network automation through programmatic extension,
while still supporting standard management interfaces.  Open vSwitch can operate
both as a soft switch running within the hypervisor, and as the control stack
for switching silicon.  It has been ported to multiple virtualization platforms
and switching chipsets.
