Next-gen Visibility Fabrics with Dell Open Networking

Big Cloud Fabric™, designed from the ground up to satisfy the requirements of physical, virtual, cloud and/or containerized workloads.

Big Monitoring Fabric™, a next-generation network visibility fabric, enabling pervasive security, faster innovation and greater business agility with SDN-based in-band and out-of-band fabrics

Partnership Overview

Big Switch Networks products package technology components into fabric solutions, bringing Software Defined Networks advanced feature sets to you at uber competitive price points with new business models. We are working furiously to apply these core technologies to many key networking markets - starting with data center and monitoring networks.

By packaging Dell Open Networking switches into Open SDN Fabric Solutions, customers now have access to the advanced feature sets enabled by SDN software with the industry-leading price points provided by Dell, all with the reassurance of Dell’s global support and services. This partnership delivers modern networking fabrics for data centers looking to achieve high degrees of network automation at cloud-competitive price points.

Big Cloud Fabric

Leaf-Spine Clos Fabric for VMware and OpenStack Data Centers.

Take the Big Switch Networks SDN Challenge - Automate your VMware or OpenStack Networks with 16x faster configuration and upgrades, 4x faster application deployment and issue resolution and troubleshooting.

Some of the typical BCF deployment scenarios include:

  • Private/Public Clouds - OpenStack (Nova or Neutron) / VMware (NSX or vSphere) / CloudStack
  • High Performance Computing / Big Data / Software Defined Storage Pods
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Pods

DEPLOYMENT SCENARIOS

Big Cloud Fabric is designed from the ground up to satisfy the requirements of physical, virtual or combination of physical and virtual workloads. Some of the typical Pod deployment scenarios include: 

  • Private/Public Clouds - >OpenStack (Nova or Neutron) / VMware (NSX or vSphere) / CloudStack
  • High Performance Computing / Big Data / Software Defined Storage Pods
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Pods

Big Monitoring Fabric

Simple, Scalable & Economical Monitoring for Pervasive Security.

Big Monitoring Fabric is a specialized, ultra-low cost visibility fabric for your entire network - selectively delivering  traffic to multiple security, monitoring, performance measurement and compliance tools—both Inline and Out-of-Band.

With Big Monitoring Fabric scale-out architecture, simplified operations and bare metal switch economics, it is rapidly becoming an attractive replacement for NPBs, creating a few popular use cases:

  • Enable Pervasive Security (monitor inline and out-of-band - global visibility with dynamic mitigation)
  • Monitor Every Rack or Location (monitor every link in the network and remote DCs/POPs/sites)
  • 4G / LTE Traffic Visibility (monitor tunneled control and data traffic)
