Huawei announced that in The Forrester Wave: Open, Programmable Switches For A Businesswide SDN, Q3 2020 report, their CloudEngine data center switches were recognized as a leader by Forrester.
These switches achieved the highest score in current offering as well as full marks in all of the following seven criteria — hardware support, switch hardware and OS strategy, automation and programmability strategy, evolution training, open networking, engineers, and partners. Huawei believe this fully reflects the leading position of its products and services.
“Firms need the flexibility to distribute applications and data across private cloud, public cloud, and edge compute areas….A single, businesswide switching fabric will become the de facto architecture.” These are future trends recognized in the Forrester Wave report. This also means that there is still a large gap between many enterprises as they are still using networks that lack flexibility and agility.
“We are honored that Forrester named Huawei’s data center CloudEngine switches a leader,” said Leon Wang, President of Huawei Data Center Network Domain. “Huawei believes that leading switching performance, openness, and flexibility are very important. The CloudEngine switches perform well in these aspects and win industry recognition. We will also focus on 400GE super capacity, zero-packet-loss intelligent experience, and autonomous driving network to provide the optimal solution, building data center networks in the intelligence era and helping customers achieve business success.”
