Since inception, Big Switch has been providing the scale that network administrator need. The company reduces cost of an organization’s networking by using SDN. Big Switch is moving toward delivering higher quality product experience and faster innovation. Many customers have benefited immensely by implementing Big Switch’s SDN solutions. In one instance, Dell, an end-to-end computing solutions company used Big Switch’s Big Tap Monitoring Fabric software. By integrating this software into a solution Dell Open Networking, the client was able to maximize its existing and future network investments. Dell embraced SDN and paired it with one of the most effective solutions of Big Switch and was able to solve its networking issues.
Another success story involves BlueData which used Big Switch Network’s Big Tap Monitoring and Big Cloud Fabric to solve the cost and networking issues the company was facing. After using Big Switch’s solutions, BlueData was able to enable the network control to be directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.
Big Switch offers customers the broadest range of deployment options to drive new levels of business agility, flexibility, and reduced cost of ownership. Moving ahead, the company plans to continue leveraging new technologies to unlock additional value and benefits for customers.
