Aviatrix Announces Cloud Native Networking 2.0

By - Source: Aviatrix Systems

Aviatrix Systems has announced the upcoming release of a software-defined network solution that enables organizations to rapidly scale out virtual private clouds (VPCs) using a combination of private and public cloud resources. Aviatrix Cloud Native Networking 2.0 uses both software-defined network controllers and software-based gateways to bridge the separate cloud resources.

The cloud connections are provisioned by Aviatrix Cloud Native Networking 2.0 by establishing secure tunnels. The provisioning process is streamlined to eliminate the need for manual configuration, and once the connections are established, the connected clouds can be segmented into VPCs, similar to how Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) segment parts of the network. The end result is a VPC designed to be fast to setup and easy to administer, and that establishes cloud-to-cloud, site-to-cloud, and user-to-cloud connectivity.

The Aviatrix web portal acts as the controller and serves as the administrative control panel, establishing connections into public and private clouds through software-based gateways placed in each cloud. The controller becomes the single pane of glass for administration, monitoring, and orchestration for all of the VPCs, regardless of the number of regions and geolocations spanned. The gateways that reside in each of the individual clouds play their role, too. They manage the VPCs, perform encryption and decryption, control logging, and enforce policies. Upon its release, Aviatrix Cloud Native Networking 2.0 will have gateways available in Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

"Cloud native networking is designed to make networking as dynamic and disposable as compute and storage. Using virtualized versions from traditional network equipment vendors in the cloud is not the answer,” said Sherry Wei, Aviatrix co-founder and CTO. “We are focused on removing constraints and limitations on network design for cloud architecture in order to empower enterprises to realize the full potential of the cloud, whether public, private or hybrid and regardless of VPC numbers or locations.”

Aviatrix 2.0 will be generally available in June 2016. Early access registration is available through theAviatrix Early Access Program
