Nirad SD-vSwitch is the virtual L2 and L3 switch that is changing the game for multi-cloud networking. As an integral part of the Nirad SD-Hub solution, it allows administrators to create global L2 and L3 networks that span multiple clouds with ease and flexibility. This makes it the ideal solution for businesses looking to capitalize on the benefits of multi-cloud computing while streamlining their network management.
With Nirad SD-vSwitch, administrators have the power to create, configure, and manage their networks from a single, centralized location. The virtual switch supports advanced features such as VLANs and VRFs, allowing administrators to create sophisticated and secure network configurations that can support the most demanding workloads. And because it’s virtual, Nirad SD-vSwitch is highly scalable and flexible, growing with your business as your needs change.
SD-WAN Overlay Topologies
Nirad’s SD-WAN allows for flexibility in deploying multiple types of network topology architectures. Using our centralized Nirad SD-Controller, you can configure a simple Hub – Spoke topology or a complex Multi-Cloud Multi-Hub topology. An overlay architecture also allows you to connect diverse underlay technologies such as connecting MPLS sites to VPN based sites.
In this scenario, spoke sites are completely isolated from each other. Spoke sites can communicate only to services and applications deployed at the hub site.
In this scenario, Spoke sites can communicate with each other via the L2 or L3 Virtual Switch. The SD-VSwitch is a virtual switch that is an integral part of the SD-Hub allowing multiple sites to be connected to each other using L2 or L3 Switching.
The SD-vSwitch can be used to create multiple L2 or L3 VRFs allowing multiple disjoint networks to be created. These networks provide isolation from each other for security and other network planning reasons. Moreover policies can be defined to regulate access between multiple VRFs allowing for a complete control over how the network is defined.
The SD-vSwitch can be extended across multiple clouds or data centers, providing the ultimate in deployment flexibility. This allows network designers to optimize their network design by creating SD-Hubs closer to their applications and inter-connecting SD-Hubs while maintaining security and isolation between VRFs.
