Arrcus, a hyperscale networking software company and a leader in cloud-to-edge network infrastructure, announced the availability of Arrcus FlexMCN, a flexible networking solution. CSPs, colocation providers and telcos can leverage FlexMCN to deliver multi-cloud connectivity as a managed service to enterprises.
The FlexMCN solution, built on Arrcus’ ACE platform, is available in a flexible array of form factors – containers, VM, software on white box hardware and the cloud. Cloud connectivity is evolving beyond single hyperscaler public clouds to hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and customers’ networking needs simultaneously are demanding flexible architectures.
The FlexMCN solution consists of ArcEdge as a secure data plane software, coupled with ArcOrchestrator, now available on- and off-premise, to simplify and expedite the setup of cloud operations. By leveraging ArcOS for robust routing, FlexMCN enables the deployment of multi-cloud and hybrid cloud networking across cloud domains and secure connectivity for workloads across cloud instances.
FlexMCN provides multi-tenancy support that enables tenant isolation and network segmentation required by large enterprises. FlexMCN’s orchestration provides role-based access control, allowing granular access to network infrastructure, thus preventing inadvertent malicious access. Multi-tenancy also enables managed service providers to share the FlexMCN ArcOrchestrator with multiple tenants and allows each tenant to have its own view of its network infrastructure in the orchestrator.
“CSPs, colocation providers and telcos have an opportunity to create new monetization streams with the delivery of secure multi-cloud connectivity as-a-service to enterprises,” said Shekar Ayyar, CEO and chairman at Arrcus. “The Arrcus FlexMCN solution uniquely provides them with a flexible, programmable, automated platform that accelerates time-to-revenue.”
FlexMCN shortens multi-cloud networking setup time dramatically from days to hours – operationally simplifying ongoing management by automating and orchestrating with popular frameworks including HashiCorp Terraform, Ansible Playbooks and REST APIs, and it can enable distributed network connectivity across clouds including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
