Big Switch Networks Named One of the 10 Coolest Startups of 2013

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/20/13 -- Big Switch Networks, the Bare Metal SDN company, was named one of the 10 coolest startups of 2013 by Computer Reseller News (CRN) this week just days after being named one of the 10 coolest networking startups of 2013 by the channel publication.

"The dynamic nature of virtualized and infrastructure-as-a-service cloud data centers demands a new generation of networking technology," said Rick Whiting, Senior Editor at CRN. "That's why software-defined networking startup Big Switch Networks, which made its debut in 2012, was so busy this year."

This accolade comes after Big Switch Networks announced former Juniper executive Douglas Murray as CEO and showcased its data center switching system, a Unified Physical + Virtual (P+V) Cloud Switching Fabric currently in beta. As part of an emerging new class of P+V data center networking products, this Bare Metal SDN Fabric brings network CapEx and OpEx levels comparable to Amazon EC2 within reach for a broad range of enterprises and cloud providers.

"Our approach, using Bare Metal Switches and SDN underneath, lets us deliver features faster and hit better price points."
