Snabb is a networking software consulting company founded by me, Luke Gorrie.

Snabb uses open source technology to solve problems for network service providers.

Snabb Switch

Snabb Switch is an open source virtualized Ethernet networking stack.

I am developing Snabb Switch because of these important trends:

  • x86 has risen to be a powerful networking platform.

  • Virtualization and SDN are pulling more networking into servers.

  • User-space networking software is out-performing kernel-space software.

Snabb Switch makes it easy to create virtualized networking software for standard Linux/Xeon servers.

Software design consulting

I am happy to offer consulting to help you bring new networking software to the market successfully.

My speciality is bringing new products from an idea to successful deployment.
