InsidePacket Extends SONiC Use Cases for Edge & Cloud Network Services

By Ken Briodagh March 04, 2020

InsidePacket recently announced that it will support SONiC, Microsoft’s Software for Open Networking in the Cloud, in order to offer cloud providers and data centers a middlebox networking service, over programmable-switch white boxes.

SONiC, coupled with InsidePacket’s solution, is an edge-specific platform designed to address the generational scale occurring as data pushes to the edge of the cloud. At the foundations of the InsidePacket solution lies a programmable-based switch ASIC, which the company says is optimized to execute middlebox services at high performance and low latency. Furthermore, the SONiC Architecture, a microservice-based modular open-source network OS, provides network infrastructures, switching, and routing operation, according to the release.

InsidePacket, Microsoft, Baidu, Broadcom, and others completed the SAI APIs specifications as part of the effort to add load balancer services to SONiC.

“InsidePacket is proud to collaborate with Microsoft, Baidu and the OCP community in bringing high scale edge cloud network services over a Jericho 2 white box to the edge cloud” said Eli Karpilovski, CEO and Founder, InsidePacket. “Through the integration with SONiC, InsidePacket customers can now leverage the high quality product and incredible work already accomplished by the Open Networking community , along with the ipOS technology designed to address the new architectures for the cloud”

“We are pleased that InsidePacket’s Load Balancer and DDOS containers are running on top of SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud), supporting our community development efforts in open networking,” said Yousef Khalidi, Corporate VP, Azure Networking, Microsoft. “Cloud providers can now gain a technological advantage over the current appliances solutions, leveraging their already used SONiC platform.”
