Modern data centers are the prow of a revolution in computing. Big Data, Cloud, modern storage architectures, and NoSQL database. The list goes on. However, networking is one significant missing piece in this list. A common substrate that has been a key enabler for all this innovation is the Linux OS. This talk makes a case for Linux as also the network OS. Specifically, the talk discusses some of the design choices and tradeoffs that were made in the implementation of routing and ACL and suggests some possible enhancements to make this model work even better.

This talk is focussed on developers and IT professionals. The talk makes a case for why Linux is a great fit as a network OS, what it can potentially enable, and what are some changes that make this fit even smoother.
