Big Switch Redefines Hybrid Cloud with Cloud-First Networking Portfolio

Big Switch Redefines Hybrid Cloud with Cloud-First Networking Portfolio Big Switch Networks and Enterprise Cloud Class, the Cloud-First Networking Company, today introduced its Cloud-First Networking (CFN) portfolio, encompassing new products and features for hybrid IT. Big Switch’s CFN portfolio addresses hybrid cloud networking design challenges, by bringing the best of public cloud networking on-premises, in contrast to hardware-centric vendors’ approaches that start with adapting legacy on-premises products for use in public clouds.

The company is the first to launch key cloud networking features on-prem, with a portfolio that builds from there with corresponding in-cloud products and culminates in a multi-cloud management system. “Since the company’s inception, our focus has been on cloud principles.

With our Cloud-First Networking innovations, we have partnered with our customers to build solutions that make the network a first class citizen in a multi cloud world,” said Douglas Murray, CEO, Big Switch Networks. “Organizations around the globe face the same networking challenges when it comes to hybrid cloud, and with CFN we are able to help organizations deploy applications more seamlessly and more efficiently by eliminating the network roadblock.” The company’s current on-prem products, Big Cloud Fabric - Enterprise Cloud (BCF-EC) and Big Monitoring Fabric - Enterprise Cloud (BMF-EC), are the industry’s first solutions offering key public cloud networking and monitoring features to on-prem workloads shipping in the next software release.

Building on these, Big Switch is announcing two new public cloud products, Big Cloud Fabric - Public Cloud (BCF-PC) and Big Monitoring Fabric - Public Cloud (BMF-PC) for corresponding in-cloud deployments. Finally, the company is introducing Multi-Cloud Director, a system for consistent hybrid design across on-prem sites, across clouds and across on-prem/in-cloud combinations of networking and monitoring fabrics. Specifically, CFN starts with Enterprise VPCs, an on-prem version of the key feature of public cloud networks implemented by Amazon (VPCs), Azure (vNets) and Google Cloud Platform (VPCs).

VPCs bring as-a-Service operations to networking in-cloud and now on-prem. With VPCs everywhere, coupled with automation everywhere and flow-analytics everywhere, CFN is eliminating the on-prem / in-cloud networking inconsistencies that have been a key impediment to seamless hybrid cloud adoption.

IT organizations can (1) leverage Enterprise VPCs to construct enterprise cloud networks that deliver public cloud benefits of as-a-Service operations, service velocity and flow-level visibility and (2) simultaneously adopt any public cloud, including Amazon Web Service (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, for additional capacity, application elasticity and/or cost optimization without having to manage multiple architecture teams, multiple operations teams and multiple designs. “An architect at one of our customers made a passing comment -- ‘I chose Big Switch because it was the closest we could get to Amazon networking on-premises’ -- and it went viral. He kicked off our journey to Cloud-First Networking,” said Kyle Forster, Big Switch Founder. “It just clicked… this is what we have to do. It is an exciting time to be in networking.”
