Lower TCO

Business needs continue to increase while the budgets to support those have reduced over time. The new mantra of doing more with less have put network architects and operators in a tough spot, making it difficult for them to design, build and manage network infrastructure that addresses today’s business needs and future proofing the investments while keeping the cost low.

Customers who adopted web-scale networking saw reduction in their TCO by up to 60%. While customers like Dreamhost experienced upfront CapEx reduction by up to 45%, majority of their savings came in form of lower OpEx cost. By increasing operator to switch ration, leveraging existing tools, skills and knowledge, customers were able to reduce their deployment time and focus on applications that mattered to business productivity.
