Big Switch Achieves Red Hat Certification

Big Switch Networks' flagship Big Cloud Fabric has achieved certification with Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform 5.

The certification enables customers to replace complex and costly legacy box-by-box networking with SDN fabric. The Big Cloud Fabric plug-in for OpenStack Neutron provides dynamic creation of network segments on the physical leaf/spine SDN fabric. Additional support for OpenStack Nova networking provides increased flexibility to customers. To speed up diagnostics, online fabric connectivity testing is exposed directly into OpenStack Horizon GUI, so each tenant can verify workload connectivity without involving a cloud operations team. Such self-service diagnostic tools, enabled through Big Cloud Fabric's native REST APIs, further reduce the customer's operational expenses.
