IDC Innovators: Datacenter Software-Defined Networking, 2018


Brad Casemore

IDC Innovators are emerging vendors with revenue <$100 million that have demonstrated either a groundbreaking business model or an innovative new technology — or both. This IDC Innovators study profiles four notable vendors in datacenter SDN/IBN: Apstra, Big Switch Networks, Plexxi, and Pluribus Networks.

"Given the imperative of digital transformation and the need to support cloud-native applications and to deliver cloud-like agility, enterprises are compelled to modernize their datacenter network architectures and operational models. Fortunately, practical and viable options for datacenter SDN and IBN are available, addressing requirements associated with a broad range of workloads and use cases. In this IDC Innovators study, four vendors are profiled: Apstra, Big Switch Networks, Plexxi, and Pluribus Networks. The approaches they take vary, but all are addressing the need for datacenter networking in the cloud era." — Brad Casemore, research vice president, Datacenter Networks
