Abstract:
In May 2015, Big Switch Networks integrated its hyperscale software-defined network, Big Cloud Fabric (BCF), with VMware's NSX network virtualization overlay. Big Switch also enhanced BCF's existing integration with vCenter, VMware's hypervisor management platform. Big Cloud Fabric is a data center network system based on OpenFlow software-defined networking (SDN) and white-box switches. In the BCF 2.6 release, Big Switch's OpenFlow controller will leverage integration with VMware's vCenter application programming interfaces (APIs), to automate the provisioning of network connectivity for virtual machines managed by vCenter and to provide visibility into VMware environments for traffic between virtual machines (VMs). Furthermore, Big Switch will leverage the integration between vSphere and NSX to optimize its OpenFlow fabric for NSX overlays. This extended integration will also introduce the end-to-end network visibility and management capabilities that many enterprises are looking for with these new network architectures.
