  Zodiac FX Overview

Nick Spaid
How does this compare to putting OVS on a Raspberry Pi and using it as a OpenFlow/SDN switch?
David Bombal
The advantage of the Zodiac FX is that it have three OpenFlow ports and one traditional port builtin. You don' have to buy USB network adapters and hubs. So, it is a ready to go package. It also gives you a different design and layout to Open vSwitch - 10 tables, a CLI designed for a switch etc.

The advantage of the Raspberry PI is that you can use the Pi for other things. You could decide to use it as a server instead of a switch for example.

I hope that helps.
