Announcing the New Pica8 Automation Framework
It’s like Having Senior Network Support Engineers in Every Office
Start your journey to a modern, simplified, self-managing enterprise network with Pica8’s new Automation Framework (now included in PICOS®) — in-band remote ZTP and ONIE; life-cycle license management; code updates; and more. (Plays well with our PicaPilot™ app, too.)
Jail-Break Your Entire Enterprise Network with Pica8’s New, Super-Simple Chassis and Switch Stack Replacements
Pica8’s industry-leading PICOS® NOS for white box networks has just been turbo-charged for wide-scale enterprise deployments across remote offices, branch offices, and campuses alike. All that white-box networking magic that has been taking web-scale data centers by storm is now available for the rest of the enterprise in the simplest-to-deploy-and-manage form possible via Pica8’s new automated switch orchestration software application, PicaPilot™.
How simple is a PicaPilot-managed network? Start with auto-configuring 50 or so PICOS-enabled campus switches via a pre-configured workflow, and then managing those switches as a single IP address. It looks like a single-layer network and it’s really that simple to deploy. And with PICOS®, of course, you get a full enterprise feature set, including voice VLANs, VoIP phone support, QoS, OSPF, stacking, NAC, VRF and more, that is fully interoperable with your existing legacy infrastructure.
Even better, PicaPilot™ leverages Pica8’s industry-only dual-control-plane CrossFlow™ technology that comes standard with PICOS®. CrossFlow™ allows enterprises to run both L2/L3 stacks and OpenFlow atop every switch port in a network at the same time. CrossFlow™ allows granular control of enterprise applications; deep and dynamic traffic monitoring; and even attack mitigation to now take place directly on the switches themselves without interrupting any live traffic. No other networking vendor has this capability.
We’re Far More than Just Another Networking Vendor
We treat each and every one of our customers like they are a Fortune 100 company. Why? First, it’s in our DNA. We didn’t get to millions of dollars of revenue per year without a sales force for nothing. But second, we have to. The only way to counter the avalanche of Fake News coming from legacy networking vendors over the years about why open standards-based networks are somehow unworthy of consideration means that we, in turn, have to outdo them where it really matters to the customer – support.
