Big Switch Networks Joins Forces with In-Q-Tel

July 25, 2014

Big Switch Networks reported a strategic partnership with In-Q- Tel (IQT), a strategic investment firm that identifies, adapts, and delivers technology solutions to support the missions of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

According to a release from the Company, the partnership will help Big Switch continue development of advanced hyperscale networking solutions for both IQT customers and the broader enterprise data center market. Networks built on the bare-metal SDN software from Big Switch are highly automated, as well as cost efficient, as they run on inexpensive bare-metal switches.

"Working with IQT gives us the opportunity to take hyperscale data center technologies to both government projects and the broader networking market," said Douglas Murray, CEO of Big Switch Networks. "Private data center networks now have the flexibility to run on interchangeable bare-metal network switch hardware with SDN software."

"Big Switch's enterprise-hardened SDN technology creates simplicity in the deployment and management of networks and provides flexibility to scale up to satisfy large and diverse workloads," said Greg Shipley, Vice President of IQT's Infrastructure and Security Practice. "We believe bare-metal infrastructure represents an opportunity for our government customers to run demanding data center networks at scale."

Big Switch Networks is a company focusing on providing hyperscale networking solutions for all data center users.
