“Customers are increasingly managing applications and data that span data center, multi-cloud, and edge environments. Delivering software-centric solutions with a common software-powered architecture, common operational capabilities, and a common security posture across all these environments is key to modern digital-first networks. The Arrcus MCN platform, with a simple, scalable, and seamless approach, extends the proven ArcOS hyperscale architecture to meet, exceed and future-proof customers’ multi-cloud networking requirements”, said Scott Raynovich, Chief Analyst at Futuriom.

Enterprises and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have their assets distributed across various data centers, the edge colocations, and public cloud infrastructure. Existing solutions, from current vendors and newcomers alike, are siloed, incomplete solutionsthat unnecessarily drive CapEx and OpEx costs higher. The issues include:

  • Lack of integration with data center IP Clos due to the legacy cloud routers
  • Unpredictable performance due to traffic hair-pinning, limited scale, and additional overhead for security
  • Limited scale due to poor quality of control plane software
  • Different tool chains, workflows, and operating models for data center and the cloud

The Arrcus MCN platform consists of ArcEdge, which is a secure data plane element and ArcOrchestrator, which is the modern orchestrator that dramatically simplifies and secures cloud connectivity. The Arrcus multi-cloud networking platform delivers the industry’s best scalable networking solution to securely and seamlessly interconnect enterprise data centers with any cloud region around the world, with hyperscale performance and cloud-native security. The Arrcus MCN solution is flexible, secure, and automated while providing the following benefits:

  • Architectural Flexibility
    • Flexible Hub-Spoke, Mesh, or Hybrid Connectivity
    • Scale to 1000’s of nodes. No data center traffic hairpin
    • Cloud-scale NAT with overlapping-IP support
  • Secure Multi-Cloud Performance
    • Cloud-native security integration with Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure security groups, IAM, and others
    • Internet as multi-cloud transport
    • Robust security and AES-256 encryption for all traffic
  • Modern Orchestration-Ready
    • ArcOS BGP-based dynamic routing, scale, connectivity
    • Supports virtual machines and container deployment options
    • Supports Terraform, Ansible frameworks, and YANG data models

“Enterprise multi-cloud adoption is fundamentally a transport challenge; more generally, how one efficiently moves data across such varied networking deployments at the lowest cost. Approximately 90% of SaaS customers require solutions integrating existing data centers with public clouds. Furthermore, these solutions must support both brownfield and greenfield deployments while providing flexibility, predictable application performance, scale, and always on security while supporting a consistent orchestration environment. The Arrcus MCN platform singularly provides the Power of One, a solution that unifies and provides seamless connectivity across the data center, the edge, and the multi-cloud”, said Devesh Garg, founder and CEO, Arrcus.
