Visionary: Big Switch Networks

Big Switch Networks has approximately 200 enterprise data center customers and added new brands above market rates in 2018. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based cloud-first networking specialist ranks fifth for vision on the Magic Quadrant and among the middle of the pack for execution.

The company’s flagship data center offering is Big Cloud Fabric, a software that enables physical switches to be managed as a single fabric with embedded automation and external programmability. Big Cloud Fabric can run on multiple hardware vendors’ certified switches including Dell EMC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Big Switch Networks recently launched its first ever product on the AWS Marketplace, Big Cloud Fabric for AWS.

Strength: Customers report high satisfaction with the vendor around ease of management, integrations with other data center infrastructure, cost-effectiveness and the option to buy via mainstream vendors like Dell Technologies.

Weakness: Big Switch has the smallest install base of data center networking customers in Garnter’s Magic Quadrant report with limited traction outside North America and Asia, while the company also lacks expertise in the midmarket.
