Welcome! Our community is open, inclusive, growing and evolving. Come on in and have a look at our open-source code and other resources. Events are a great place to see the community and other explorers like you. In the meantime, ask a question, make a suggestion, or offer your own contributions.

New Name, Same Faces

You might remember us as OpenContrail. In preparation to join the Linux Foundation, we renamed our community in early 2018. Please be patient as we move over code, docs, resources and engagement from OpenContrail forums to Tungsten Fabric forums. Our groups of leaders haven’t changed, but we’re adding a community Ambassador program of helpful folks across the globe that can lead talks such as Meetups.

Our Mission

Build the world’s most ubiquitous, easy-to-use, scalable, secure, and cloud-grade SDN stack, providing a network fabric connecting all environments, all clouds, all people.

Find or join a group of people in the community helping to make Tungsten Fabric local to you. Ambassadors can speak at local events like Meetups, tour some project technology, and help locally.

  • To find an Ambassador, join the Slack team, and direct message someone you find in the map. You can also try the #events channel.
  • To volunteer an Ambassador, we politely ask that you have given at least one talk on the project and are familiar with the TF Overview deck. To get listed on the map, reach out to someone on the Marketing Working Group.
