Faction Releases Internetwork eXchange (FIX)
FIX extends Faction’s “Bring Your Network As-Is” private cloud to hybrid designs.
Faction has released its Faction Internetwork eXchange (FIX), allowing enterprises to easily and cost-effectively connect private cloud and colocation resources into public clouds privately and securely. This extends Faction’s patent-pending “bring your network as-is” private cloud networking to hybrid cloud designs, allowing enterprises to easily add the use of public cloud to their private clouds without complex networking changes.
“IT managers today want to take advantage of new technologies, but find connecting private cloud workloads to public clouds to be a difficult and costly proposition,” comments Matthew Wallace, VP of Product for Faction. “Our patent-pending SDN technology allows our customers to bring their existing networks to our private cloud without any reconfiguration. Faction Internetwork eXchange now extends that capability to public clouds, giving them the security, cost savings, and simplicity they need to take full advantage of public cloud resources now, without costly migrations or complicated new tools. The FIX is also designed to be a more cost-effective way to connect to the public cloud than a dedicated connection or using the public Internet.”
Faction Internetwork eXchange allows organizations to quickly add private, secure connectivity to hundreds of other networks over their existing infrastructure. No additional hardware or software is needed to create many virtual circuits to different networks, all over their existing ports. This allows customers to easily pursue hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategies without spending money up front on hardware, tools, and training. Among the hundreds of available connection endpoints, Faction can easily connect customers into popular public cloud destinations, such as Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Softlayer, and many others.
