SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–August 11, 2022–

Aviz Networks, a leading solution provider for Open-, Cloud-, and AI-first networking, today announced that it has joined the Linux Foundation and its SONiC project, an open-source network operating system Linux-based that runs on switches and ASICs from multiple vendors. Aviz joined the foundation to accelerate the adoption of multi-vendor SONiC while continuing to contribute to the open networking stack. As a pioneer committed to continuing to accelerate the adoption and growth of SONiC, Aviz announced that it is opening its support portal to the entire ecosystem.

Starting today, any company can freely leverage Aviz’s expertise and resources to solve SONiC deployment issues on all major platforms for their assessments. Aviz’s support has been key to the success of SONiC deployments across large cloud and enterprise customers. With Aviz’s expertise, network operators can realize their POCs faster for multi-vendor environments and leverage SONiC for their production networks.

“We are delighted to welcome Aviz to the Linux Foundation and the SONiC community, which is part of a strong ecosystem that supports the open networking stack,” said Arpit Joshipura, General Manager, Networking , Edge and IoT, the Linux Foundation. “As an open source NOS, SONiC was designed to bring rapid innovation, collaboration, and reliability to the open networking community. Aviz’s support for enterprise adoption within the open source ecosystem is a welcome addition to our continued growth.

“Over the past couple of years, the networking industry has seen a huge increase in SONiC adoption, with just about every platform vendor embracing SONiC to support their customers across all verticals and geographies ( read the SONiC Research and Forecast Report),” said Alan Weckel of the 650 Group. “For an open-source NOS to have widespread appeal, it needs a strong developer community and support model solid. Aviz provides this support to the SONiC ecosystem.

“Early adopters of SONiC often need access to the right tools, additional capability, or additional expertise to troubleshoot and debug issues. When it comes to complex multi-vendor deployments, open source software support can become a logistical nightmare,” said Gautam Agrawal, CPO of Aviz Networks. “Our goal is to make SONiC easily deployable on every platform, so we’re excited to open our support channel to all members of the ecosystem. Over the past 5+ years, our engineering team has gained significant expertise in SONiC across multiple platforms.With strong partnerships and well-defined SLAs between all major switch/ASIC vendors, we want to help the SONiC community improve the user experience.
