Big Switch Networks

Big Switch Networks is making a big splash, as the Palo Alto, Calif.-based cloud and virtualization startup stumps to be the VMware for networking and recently scored $13.8 million in venture capital funding to continue its charge.

Big Switch offers an OpenFlow-based platform that brings the benefits of virtualization and cloud architecture to enterprise networks. Big Switch Networks' approach removes the need for administrators to manually configure and manage every device that's connected to the network. Instead, the physical hosts plugged into the network are managed through a virtual network layer that sits on top, which makes it easier to add capacity to the underlying physical topology as needed. This is done using the OpenFlow switching protocol, which separates packet routing from the physical infrastructure and handles it on a separate software layer.
