Big Switch Networks

Every time you search on Google, friend on Facebook or start a VM on Amazon, you are using the world’s most cost-efficient and most automated data center networks—those built from bare metal switches and SDN controllers. Our mission is to bring hyperscale networking to a broader audience, removing the network as an obstacle to rapid deployment of new applications. We do this by delivering fit-for-purpose products inspired by hyperscale networking technologies and design principles:

I. Bare Metal Hardware to Reduce Cost

II. SDN Software to Reduce Complexity

III. Modern Data Center Designs to Innovate Faster
