Extreme Builds on SDN and Data Center Ecosystem

This summer, we announced our evolutionary software defined networking (SDN) platform, featuring an open, standards-based and comprehensive approach focused on delivering value to customers through strong ecosystem support. Today, we are excited to build upon that vision and announce enhancements to our Software Defined Architecture, including new data center products and Technology Solution Partner (TSP) Program members.

At Extreme, it has been our #1 priority to drive open networking with a focus on standards based solutions, while at the same time creating an unique network architecture. The key pillars in this initiative have been high performance hardware, unified management and robust network-based application analytics.

Our software defined architecture, along with key technology integration partners, enables this vision with support for highly virtualized enterprises, cloud/service providers and HPC/Big Data deployments.

New products today include our new Top-of-Rack Summit X670-G2 switches that have industry-leading density for 10GbE (with 72 ports in just 1RU) and ultra-low latency. Separately, our new Purview Application Sensor is a new appliance solution that scales and simplifies the deployment of Purview analytics within any data center.
