NetFoundry products connect endpoints across any mix of Internet access networks to enable cost-effective, high velocity enterprise networking needs, while meeting the most stringent requirements for security, performance, and resilience.
NetFoundry products enable businesses and developers to deploy and manage global, app-embeddable SDNs using the same cost-effective and business velocity driven DevOps model in which teams spin up virtual machines and orchestrate applications today.
Cloud-native and implemented entirely in software, NetFoundry SDNs provide enterprise-grade security, reliability and performance, across any Internet access.
NetFoundry SDNs can be deployed as global standalone networks, and can be easily bolted on to existing networks in order to cost-effectively, securely and reliably extend those networks to IoT, cloud and any corner of the Internet as a software-based alternative to expensive MPLS links and remote access VPNs.
The NetFoundry platform enables businesses and developers to build cost-effective SDNs comprised of one or more independent “SnapNets”, each with its own app-driven policies to provide selected endpoints and services with the security, policies and performance they need.
Each SnapNet spins up a logical sub-network across existing and incremental cloud and edge endpoints. Each SnapNet is optimized for the specific needs of the application or business service, improving business velocity and agility
SnapNets allow separate enterprise teams to solve one business-driven network solution at a time with minimal effort, independence and abstraction from underlying network infrastructure.
Any one endpoint may participate in multiple SnapNets. NetFoundry’s virtual software enables a broad range of devices, computers, IT and IoT edge servers and cloud edge compute to join each SnapNet, saving businesses from the high costs and time delays of private networks and infrastructure.
The Management Console and Orchestration APIs enable each SnapNet to be managed as a separate logical sub-network.
SnapNets with Cloud Gateways provide instant-on, edge-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud networks for multicloud and IoT connection solutions. Current Cloud Connect SnapNets include:
Each Cloud Connect SnapNet provides enterprise-grade security and performance, is accessed from any Internet connection, and can be easily added to existing networks.
This means businesses can securely connect to clouds without needing to incur the expense, delay and inflexibility of private network buildouts to each cloud.
SnapNets with AppWAN Gateways provide instant-on WANs for cloud-hosted applications. Currently available AppWAN SnapNets include:
Each AppWAN SnapNet provides enterprise-grade security and performance, is accessed from any Internet connection, and can be easily added to existing networks. AppWANs enable enterprises to save both time and money – securely and reliably implementing new business critical applications without investing in private network and infrastructure builds.
SnapNets with L2 Edge Switch Gateways provide edge-to-edge connections amongst distributed branch office and campus LANs, and enable multicloud and AppWan extensions. Current Branch Office LAN SnapNets include:
Each Branch Office LAN SnapNet provides enterprise-grade security and performance, is accessed from any Internet connection, and can be easily added to existing networks so as to improve both business costs and agility.
