Big Switch Networks Brings SDN Underlay for VMware NSX
FREMONT, CA: Big Switch Networks introduces physical network automation and visibility into software-defined data centers powered by VMware. The latest Big Cloud Fabric 2.6 combines physical network automation and visibility with VMware NSX platform alongside integration with VMware vCenter Server to support vSphere workload.
VMware NSX executed on Big Cloud Fabric bridges the visibility gaps between the virtual network (overlay) and the underlying physical network (underlay). The latest Big Cloud Fabric comprises of an enhanced Fabric Analytics module which provides deep visibility of VMware virtual machines for network administrators.
The latest edition also provides rapid VXLAN Tunnel Endpoints (VTEP) troubleshooting on Big Cloud Fabric underlay across the fabric including source VTEP, source leaf, spine, destination leaf, and destination VTEP.
