Cloud-First Delivers VPCs On-Prem

Big Cloud Fabric (BCF)™ is an automated fabric built with cloud networking design principles. BCF leverages VPC/VNet constructs on-prem to deliver a cloud- Network-as-a-Service operational model. BCF automates networking for multiple private cloud platforms, enabling the network to operate at the speed of VMs and Containers. With built-in analytics and telemetry, BCF provides real-time contextual visibility across the fabric and one-click troubleshooting workflows. With BCF, NetOps, DevOps and CloudOps teams can effectively collaborate, and rapidly on-board applications and tenants.
