Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric™ (BCF) is the industry’s first data center fabric built using Open Ethernet switches (whitebox or britebox) and SDN controller technology. Customers benefit from unprecedented application agility due to automation, massive operational simplification due to SDN and, dramatic cost reduction due to HW/SW disaggregation. Embracing the hyperscale data center design principles, Big Cloud Fabric solution enables rapid innovation, ease of provisioning and management, while reducing overall costs, making it ideal for current and next generations data centers.
