Aviatrix Named “Cool Vendor” in 2017 Cloud Computing by Gartner

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 31, 2017

Aviatrix Inc., the pioneer in reinventing networking for the cloud era to radically simplify and secure cloud connectivity, today announced it has been named a “cool vendor” in the Cloud Computing 2017 category by Gartner Inc.

Aviatrix is reinventing networking to dramatically accelerate, simplify and secure cloud connectivity. Designed for Enterprises embracing cloud at scale, Aviatrix’s software dramatically reduces cloud networking set up time, from weeks to minutes, and simplifies ongoing management by automating and orchestrating cloud network operations. Built from the ground up for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform environments, the Aviatrix solution solves the common connectivity problems encountered during application workload migration to public cloud, or when deploying cloud-based applications that leverages on-premises services.

According to Gartner, “As cloud computing enters its second decade, the era of cloud optimization — not just cloud implementation — is here. Infrastructure and operations leaders looking to build or deploy cloud-based solutions can turn to these Cool Vendors for inspiration and best practices on the optimization journey”.

“Gartner is highly reputed in the technology industry and the cool vendor award in Cloud Computing & Emerging technologies is akin to winning the Oscars for a pioneering tech startup like us”, said Steven Mih, Aviatrix CEO. “As Enterprises rapidly embrace the cloud, our solution is gaining tremendous traction with both mid-market and large companies like Robert Half International, Hyatt Inc. and more. This recognition further validates that our customers want innovative cloud-based networking solutions that delivers significant business value. Enterprises are leveraging our solution to accelerate workload migration strategies with a networking architecture in the cloud that is simple to setup and manage and fully automated with a comprehensive management, monitoring and operations console”.

Aviatrix delivers the world’s most secure, easy to deploy and manage cloud connectivity solution, enabling companies to connect their datacenter and global sites to their cloud or connect cloud-to-cloud in minutes, not weeks. Unlike legacy networking solutions, which are complex, require hardware changes and are inherently insecure, the Aviatrix solution makes cloud connections easy to set up and manage and is fully encrypted for end-to-end security.

  • Rapid Set Up – Connect your clouds with a few simple clicks using a browser based interface. Set up can be done in minutes, not weeks, speeding up your cloud migration.
  • Fully Automated – Ongoing cloud management is easy as everything is fully automated and orchestrated, unlike traditional networking, which is completely manual. Centralized visibility across clouds has never been simpler.
  • End-to-End Security – All tunnels are fully encrypted, providing end-to-end security, unlike legacy solutions which leave the final transmission segment exposed.
  • Reduced Cost and Risk – Our software-only model eliminates the need for reconfigured, or additional, hardware. Edge routers which manage traffic are never touched, dramatically reducing risk.
