Public cloud providers’ native networking capabilities are good enough for many use cases, but have notable gaps. Forklifting traditional virtual routers to fill these gaps is inefficient, so I&O leaders should adopt multicloud networking software to improve operations in public cloud environments.
- Enterprises deploy multicloud networking software to address network shortcomings in public cloud, infrastructure-as-a-service environments, including a lack of advanced features, and/or consistent management at scale.
- Despite being called “multicloud” networking software, enterprises can (and do) deploy it in single cloud environments, as well as multicloud environments.
- Virtual routers and virtual appliances offered by traditional network vendors often fail to meet the requirements of cloud and DevOps teams, particularly in programmability, integration or flexible licensing.
- The market is small, but growing, from both a revenue and customer perspective. We estimate that several thousand customers have deployed MCNS
