Spin up new services quickly and reliably.
Corsa’s SDN hardware virtualization enables multiple WAN-scale virtual forwarding contexts (VFCs) within the same physical hardware. Our true network hardware virtualization enables network owners to realize dynamic networks and their associated CAPEX and OPEX savings.
What Network Hardware Virtualization Can Do For You
Simple, modular SDN controllers or applications
A distinct controller for each VFC keeps the controller development separated into clearly defined functions.
Separate ownership of overlay forwarding behavior from underlay admin
Network owner maintains full control of the network while user can access their service without impacting the performance or security of the underlying network.
Isolate traffic into zones for performance and security
Network operator can create different network zones (i.e., external customer, developer or secure zones) running on the same hardware infrastructure. These virtual switch and router overlays can be provided transparently at any scale.
Automate new service commissioning without new wiring
Enable on-demand network spin-up by the network administrator while allowing customers direct control of the virtual switch via their own self-serve portal. If the customer moves, changes, or wants more, it’s just a call to the REST API and the change is made.
Use hardware resources more efficiently
Logically attach any part of the physical port to any logical switching or routing instance with any speed and any variety of traffic protocol.
Improve bandwidth management for each tenant
Fine tune traffic with metering, queuing and shaping per VFC to maintain service level agreements. This allows for right-sizing of the switching or routing function at the same time as managing the data throughput dynamically.
