Client satisfaction is our obsession. We make IT work.
Enterprise networking is currently a major industry – over $40 billion in revenue in 2015 and growing. In this industry, some major powerhouse companies have consistently shown their value to the market, and Network World has compiled a list of the ten most dominant. Their findings were based on consultations with industry analysts, journalists, and their own research, and focused on market share in core networking, monitoring and management, and more. Some entries may seem obvious, some may be unexpected. But this article provides handy, easy-to-read information about key industry players and what solutions they offer, which will be helpful to both veteran and new IT administrators alike.
This week, Cisco announced that its Software-Defined Networking platform, called Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) will soon be able to integrate with many of the most popular public clouds, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. This will allow customers to more easily deploy and manage hybrid networks that cover both environments. These three main public cloud providers will be the only ones that Cisco will make its API currently available to. Cisco plans to bridge connections between multiple controllers at different sites, allowing administrators to create policies that are consistent across environments, including network segmentation and whitelisting. While they are not the first to announce this – VMware announced last year that its NSX SDN would soon be able to integrate with public clouds – one can only wonder what an industry leader’s take on the technology will be.
