25 Software-Defined Networking Players To Know


Vyatta

Vyatta, which built a loyal channel following going after the network virtualization trend before it was trendy to do so, is both well-funded and quickly expanding. Just this past month, it introduced Vyatta vPlane, a scalable forwarding plane for migrating mission-critical enterprise applications to virtualized environments. One of vPlane's snazziest features -- it scales linearly, so as more cores are introduced in an Intel Westmere-class system, say, that system using vPlane can deliver 35 million packets per second using only a single rack-unit of data center space, Vyatta claims.
