The new NetOps era is here

Switch to data center fabrics your way

Accelerating demand for cloud-based applications is putting immense pressure on cloud builders and hyper-scalers on the data center network frontline. Now, a new NetOps era is letting network engineers manage that demand their way, with all the scale and control they need.

Our next-generation data center fabric solution is driven by SR-Linux, a uniquely open, extensible and consumable Network Operating System (NOS), together with our new Fabric Services System which provides the declarative, intent-based toolkit needed to successfully automate data center network operations.
