Enabling VPC Automation and Visibility for Nutanix Enterprise Cloud
Big Switch Networks and Nutanix are collaborating to bring simplicity and agility of public clouds into enterprise cloud Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) deployments. Similar to Nutanix Enterprise Cloud OS, Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric Enterprise Cloud (BCF) brings Cloud-First Networking principles to Nutanix HCI with Enterprise Virtual Private Cloud (EVPC)-based logical networking.
BCF integrates with Nutanix Prism to enable unprecedented operational velocity, network automation at VM speed and end-to-end network visibility, thus making it the ideal networking solution for Nutanix HCI.
Leveraging enterprise-cloud software intelligence and industry-standard open hardware, the joint solution enables seamless scale-out at every layer (compute, storage, and networking) of the HCI stack, while providing tremendous operational efficiency and dramatic CapEx reduction.
“We are pleased to see Big Cloud Fabric certified for Nutanix AHV,” said Sridhar Devarapalli, General Manager of Networking and Cloud Services, Nutanix. “BCF is a highly complementary networking solution, offering automation of network provisioning and seamless integration with Acropolis. The solution’s Enterprise-VPC everywhere approach empowers our engineering teams to manage their networking needs for their environments. Operators also benefit from full visibility of the HCI stack - compute, storage and network - for easy operation of Nutanix deployments at scale.”- Sridhar DevarapalliGeneral Manager of Networking and Cloud Services
