Aviatrix delivers cloud networking as a service

Aviatrix, a pioneer in software-defined public cloud routing and an inaugural AWS Network Competency partner, has announced its Aviatrix Hosted Service, the first hosted service to build and manage virtual private cloud (VPC) networks in Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) public cloud environments, the company said.

This new Aviatrix offering enables organizations to combine the benefits of networking software-as-a-service (SaaS) with the convenience of consolidated payments through their AWS bill.

The Aviatrix Hosted Service offers the same features and functionality as the existing Aviatrix product offering. The difference is that by hosting the Aviatrix Controller, which is a centralized console for building and managing all secure connectivity, companies now have a SaaS-like way to automate the deployment and configuration of Aviatrix Gateways in their own environment.

The Aviatrix software-defined router is designed for use by cloud operations teams and network engineers who need an automated, complete solution well beyond what existing instance-based virtual routers offer. The solution consists of the Aviatrix Controller, now available via the Hosted Service, and Aviatrix Gateways, which are deployed in VPCs to support cloud networking use cases that include AWS global transit networks, remote user VPN and VPC egress security.

Aviatrix, the pioneer in software-defined routing for the cloud era, aims to make cloud networking as simple and dynamic as cloud storage and compute. Aviatrix provides point-and-click, secure networking software for cloud engineers to run hybrid and multicloud environments. Aviatrix is based in Palo Alto, Calif.
