Volta Networks is rethinking routing.
We are taking the control plane and putting it into the cloud. This is the perfect complement to commercially available low cost, high performance switch hardware known as white box switches. This is made possible by the Volta Elastic Virtual Routing Engine running a private, public or hybrid cloud. With our full featured control plane running in the cloud, customers can start small and build large networking infrastructures that provide unparalleled levels of flexibility and scalability at a fraction of the cost of conventional chassis-bound routers.

The Cloud Changes Networking
Networks at the Tipping Point Networks are at a tipping point. IP networks now are the foundations for a new generation of services and connectivity. The whole infrastructure is becoming virtual, smaller, shorter lived and more dynamic. As a result, the number of network connections requested is massively increasing, placing unprecedented stress on data networks and network equipment. Long lived client server traffic is a very small part of the total. Applications now rely on IT elements are becoming virtual, smaller, shorter lived and more dynamic. This drives a massive increase in machine-to-machine traffic. As a result, traditional chassis based routers become more and more expensive to buy and operate.
The Control Plane In the Cloud Volta Networks is about to change all this. With the Volta Networks solution, customers will now be able to purchase commercially available low cost, high performance switch hardware known as white box switching. This is made possible by the Volta Network Control Platform software running either on the customer’s private cloud, or on the Public or Hybrid cloud. This enables customers to build large networking infrastructures that provide unparalleled levels of flexibility and scalability. Our customers can ride the wave of network forwarding platform enhancements while maintaining a stable and robust software infrastructure independent of the networking hardware itself.
Improved operations With Volta, network operations becomes faster and more responsive. As a native cloud application, Volta takes full advantage of the elastic nature of the cloud and ensures that resources are used efficiently regardless of the scope of the deployment. By leveraging technologies like containers, Volta can deliver new software upgrades quickly without the burdens of legacy monolithic systems. Complete interoperability with legacy equipment enables the quick adoption of lower cost, higher functioning hardware and software. Multi-tenant virtual routing provides secure isolation of customer data and customers can self manage according to their business needs. Operators can drive out both capital and operations costs by enabling service provisioning in real time using the power of Volta in the Cloud.
