Data Center Connect

NoviFlow High-Performance Programmable Forwarding Planes Enable Business


The modern networks are no longer monolithic entities whose architectures can be optimized for only a few specific applications. With the arrival of virtualization, the cloud computing and ubiquitous mobile devices, the types of services offered increasingly rely on a huge variety of business processes provided as services by other networks, many of which are distributed across multiple domains. Hence, the percentage of data center traffic going ‘east-west’ within and between data centers has risen to over 80% of the total, requiring, network operators to utilize a variety of tunneling and label/tag switching strategies such as VLANs and MPLS.

Consumer demand for first-rate CSP and Data Center services is increasing at an extraordinary rate as Cloud adoption continues to grow, with more and more enterprises moving to cloud-based applications and services. Existing network solutions were never intended to deal with the scale of traffic and the numbers of connections generated by the arrival of virtualization and cloud-based services, and these limitations have become a major headache for most network and data center providers.

To ultimately prosper, CSPs and Data Center Providers are developing fresh revenue streams from a host of digital, on-demand services:

  • BWoD (Bandwidth on Demand)
  • CCoD (Cross-Connects on Demand)
  • Cloud Connect
  • SD-WAN
  • vCPE Marketplace
    • Virtual Firewalls
    • Load Balancers
  • Cloud Brokering
  • Inter-carrier Network Exchange

The Data Center ConneX bundled solution bridges the gap between SDN & Legacy Equipment to bring automation and on-demand services to data centers to help reduce overall costs and increase customer experience.

NoviFlow and CloudSmartz provide an elegant way of dealing with network challenges by using the massive matching and flow redirection capabilities of NoviFlow’s NoviSwitches to pre-digest network traffic at the boundaries of the network. Data Center ConneX comprises three main functions. The first automates deployment of services within a multi-tenant data center (Cross Connect). The second extends these services to work across network boundaries (Data Center Interconnect). The third automates the use of cloud-based resources (Cloud Connect). The result is a seamless environment that significantly reduces the time and cost of deploying services across networks, as well as providing the agility to quickly take advantage of new network applications, services and business models as they come to market.
