Big Switch Networks is at the forefront of the next-generation of networking technologies. By combining industry standard switch hardware (“white box / branded white box “brite box”) with intelligent SDN control software, the company is delivering next-generation data center networking fabrics for the world’s most advanced data centers looking to achieve unmatched degrees of network automation at cloud-competitive price points.
Big Switch Networks has two data center networking solutions: Big Cloud Fabric, a data center switching fabric for OpenStack clouds or VMware virtualization environments, and Big Monitoring Fabric, a network packet broker that enables pervasive security and monitoring data center traffic for inline or out-of-band deployments. Big Switch is taking three key technologies: vendor agnostic switch hardware, SDN control software, and core-and-pod data center designs –and leveraging them for use in next-generation data center switching and monitoring solutions designed for use in enterprises, cloud providers, and service providers.
All Big Switch solutions run on high-performance open networking switches from Accton/Edgecore, Dell EMC or HPE Altoline and leverage centralized SDN controller.
software for fabric-wide control and management. Big Switch Networks has two solutions:
Big Cloud™ Fabric
Next-Generation Data Center Switching
Big Cloud Fabric is the next generation data center switching fabric for rapid provisioning, troubleshooting, innovation, and simplified operations. A controller-driven leaf-spine architecture enables scale out pod deployments for physical and virtual workloads, OpenStack private cloud, VMware environments, container environments, Big Data, and VDI.
Big Monitoring™ Fabric
Next-generation Visibility and Security
Big Monitoring Fabric enables pervasive visibility and security of network workloads, selectively delivering them to multiple security, performance and compliance tools—both inline and out-of-band. Network owners can now see and secure every network, VM, container and cloud—and manage, automate, and analyze it all from a single pane interface.
