“Aviatrix radically simplified cloud networking and made Azure more easily consumable. The combination of Aviatrix and Azure cloud services has enabled our rapid global expansion plans, vastly improved user experience and signicantly reduced our costs.”
“The Aviatrix software provides automated connectivity to Amazon clouds allowing us to create multiple VPCs easily and quickly. We are now serving business units of Robert Half, providing an IT supported self-service system to leverage the public cloud.”
“To the extent that we have peers, they tend to be big Amazon and Docker users. Aviatrix is the networking substrate that we can ignore, that just needs to work. For us, Aviatrix works out really well.”
Modern applications are driven by vastly different needs than those of the past. Today’s applications require resources from multiple providers, and are not tied to a single location, such as an on-premises data center or a single, public cloud provider. These applications require rapid changes in design to meet workload or customer needs, and cannot be constrained by traditional networking architecture.
Networking startup Aviatrix enables enterprises to build scalable and secure private networks across multiple public cloud providers. Enterprises can build a hybrid cloud network via Aviatrix’s central controller, which is deployable either in the cloud or in the enterprise data center.
Leveraging in-depth interviews with Aviatrix customers, this paper identifies the use cases enterprises can pursue with this hybrid cloud networking solution, and it quantifies the cost savings and business benefits that can be realized.
To keep up with rapid prototyping, continuous development and integration, enterprise IT organizations are transforming their traditional server deployment and maintenance functions to a more strategic role that handles the selection, integration, and delivery of IT services for the cloud.
