The company expands operations to deliver Open-, Cloud-, and AI-first networking solutions based on SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud)
Aviz Networks, a leading provider of software solutions for Hybrid Cloud & Edge Networks leveraging Multi-Vendor SONiC, announced a $4 million Seed Round today led by Moment Ventures with participation from leading network equipment vendors. Moment Ventures’ Founder & General Partner, Ammar Hanafi, and industry luminary Rajiv Khemani, Founder of Innovium (now part of Marvell Technology), have joined Aviz’s Board of Directors.
SONiC has rapidly emerged as the leader for open-source network operating system (NOS) deployments with Gartner predicting that by 2025, 40% of organizations that operate large data center networks will run SONiC in production environments. As the only open-source NOS that runs on Switches and ASICs from all major vendors today, it is the right time for private clouds in Data Centers, Retailers, and Telcos to leverage SONiC for modernizing their network infrastructure. Deployments of SONiC are accelerating and in a clear sign of the growing momentum, SONiC recently became part of the Linux Foundation.
Aviz is enabling a unified and consistent user experience across multi-vendor environments with its Aviz Certified SONiC program and a high quality application-driven support model, backed by 24/7 availability of SONiC experts. Aviz has signed partnerships with all major Switch and ASIC vendors to enable customers for interoperable multi-vendor networks. Furthermore, Aviz is accelerating SONiC adoption by making the NOS application aware and bringing Cloud-Native and AI capabilities to hybrid networks.
