VMware + Big Switch Networks: Delivering Simplified Visibility and Orchestration

February 24, 2016

Big Switch Networks' Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) --- a controller-driven SDN fabric implemented with commodity open networking (whitebox/britebox) switches---can be deployed as a cost-optimized physical network for VMware Integrated OpenStack (VIO). Coupled with VMware NSX for L3 network and rich security services, enterprises have an end-to-end solution for OpenStack networking for VMware deployments. Watch this recorded webinar to learn about how VIO deployments benefit from BCF's operational simplification through automation and enhanced visibility along with the comprehensive services offered by NSX. 

In this webinar, we discussed:

  • Big Question #1: What benefits does VIO offer for deploying production-grade OpenStack on VMware? 
  • Big Question #2: How does the BCF’s Physical Fabric Automation accelerate VIO deployments? 
  • Big Question #3: How does the solution provide end-to-end network visibility and simplify troubleshooting?
