Cloud-First Networking Approach for Enterprise Cloud Design

Presented by

Big Switch: Bala Ramachandran & Don Jayakody | Nutanix: Jason Burns & Raul Robles

About this talk

Is it possible to architect an enterprise cloud as good as a public cloud? Big Switch and Nutanix are transforming data centers by leveraging public cloud constructs as first principles for architecting enterprise private clouds. Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) provides invisible (zero-touch) networking to Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) based on Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). BCF leverages cloud-first networking principles in two ways: (1) leaf-spine design based on open networking switches with SDN controls, and (2) public cloud VPC-style logical networking that is API integrated with Nutanix Prism. This joint solution enables unprecedented operational velocity, network automation at VM speed and end-to-end network visibility & troubleshooting. With Big Switch + Nutanix Enterprise Cloud operating just like a public cloud in terms of economics and operational workflows, customers can now optimize app placement across public and private clouds based on app’s needs for elasticity, cost and performance. This webinar will cover: -How Nutanix Enterprise Cloud delivers agility, simplicity and pay-as-you-grow economics of public clouds to enterprise HCI -How BCF-EC’s Enterprise VPC based logical networking brings public-cloud like network automation and deep visibility for Nutanix AHV deployments -How the joint solution enables deployment flexibility and infrastructure elasticity -Customer success story: How Nutanix uses Big Switch in their own data centers Demo: Big Cloud Fabric + Nutanix (AHV) Enterprise Cloud solution
