Big Switch Networks Named to the Virtualization 50
Big Switch Networks, the Bare Metal Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Company, today announced that it has been named to Computer Reseller News' (CRN) annual list of the top 50 virtualization vendors that need to be on the channel's radar:

"Virtualization remains one of the hottest segments of the IT industry," said CRN's Rick Whiting and Joseph F. Kovar. "Big Switch champions what it calls 'Software-Defined Networking 2.0,' which uses bare metal switches running the company's Switch Light software for orchestrating virtual and physical networks. Late last year the company previewed its application-aware, unified physical+virtual SDN switching fabric technology."

Big Switch Networks is at the forefront of the next generation of networking technologies. By combining commodity OEM/ODM Ethernet switch hardware ("bare metal switches") with sophisticated SDN control software, the company is delivering modern networking fabrics for the world's most advanced data centers looking to achieve high degrees of network automation at cloud-competitive price points.

"We are honored to be selected by CRN as one of the top 50 virtualization vendors," said Douglas Murray, CEO of Big Switch Networks. "As a channel led organization, being named by CRN as a top 50 vendor furthers market validation, as is evident in our recent wins through partners in the United States and Japan."
