Recent years have seen both a tremendous increase in network traffic and radical change in how electronic information is accessed, used and stored. The explosive growth in the use of online applications, virtualization and cloud services by an ever-expanding array of wired and mobile connected devices has severely challenged long standing assumptions and ideas about how networks should be built.
The old solutions just don’t work anymore…
Despite the last twenty years’ breakthroughs in data center compute and storage, or even perhaps because of them, rising network costs remain an inescapable issue. Networking technology lags significantly behind compute and storage in taking advantage of virtualization and disaggregation, resulting rigid all-in-one designs, vendor lock-in, the multiplication of protocols, proprietary interfaces, non-deterministic network behavior, and a very limited ability to interact meaningfully with the applications and services that use network resources. Unlike compute and storage, the network neither scales-up, nor scales out, placing limitations on the benefits of Hyperscale architectures and causing major headaches to data center and network managers.
The NoviFlow Scale-Out Router leverages SDN and OpenFlow to implement a fully functional, centrally controlled and reliable network router that is much easier to scale and far more economical to operate than traditional monolithic routers. This scale-out approach generates savings in both CAPEX and OPEX, as well as providing a more flexible, responsive and programmable routing infrastructure far better equipped to deal with the challenges of exponentially growing numbers of connected devices, vastly changed usage patterns, and is much better able to exploit new software based solutions for network optimization.
