Pica8 is the white box SDN leader. Since 2009, Pica8 has pioneered open networking with PicOS™, the first network operating system that enables customers to easily migrate from conventional networking to software-defined networking (SDN) using commodity white box switches. PicOS enables SDN through an Industry standard CLI, unmodified Linux, and OpenFlow 1.4 through OVS 2.0. Pica8 can provide PicOS, switching hardware or both in a fully integrated package as part of an end-to-end data center SDN solution, and makes adopting SDN easy with a Starter Kit that enables deployment in hours rather than months. Pica8 is a global company headquartered in Palo Alto, California.
The networking revolution is here. Today’s networks need to handle virtual machines, mobile workloads, and clouds. You need a network that’s fast, dynamic, and easy to scale.
Traditional networking vendors claim they can deliver this with software, but it comes at a cost: locking you into their proprietary hardware and licensing.
It’s time to take back control of your network. At Pica8, we create flexible networks on the principles of disaggregation - separating physical from virtual, control from data, and hardware from software. We’re shifting the value of the network to the software - not the hardware.
