As Network Transformation gains steam with the emergence of 5G networks and edge computing architectures, Enterprise/Provider CIOs are demanding greater agility, simplicity, and flexibility to support their application-oriented business models. Providing their customers with a consistent, superior experience in such a transformative environment while managing hardware-centric complex routers and switches, is difficult, inefficient and an expensive undertaking. What is needed is software-powered network transformation that brings service agility, data-driven adaptability and business-centric innovation. The Global Network Transformation Market was valued at $4.32 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach $332.17 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 62.01 percent from 2017 to 2025 (Market Insights Report). The founders of Arrcus, a venture backed company based in San Jose, CA, recognized the opportunity to provide businesses with differentiated solutions to the networking challenges associated with this transformation.

Arrcus assembled an elite roster of world-class networking technologists who have a combined 650+ years of experience from networking, routing, infrastructure and automation environments, an unparalleled record in shipping production quality products and are complemented by industry thought leaders, operating executives and company building strategic investors, to develop an independent, hardware agnostic networking operating system.

This resulted in ArcOS®, the world’s first independent carrier-grade networking operating system (NOS) in production today across data center, edge and provider environments. Purpose-built using first-order principles. ArcOS offers unprecedented levels of scale, standards-based programmability (utilizing the widely deployed REST/Open Config/YANG based models), automation and enhanced telemetry.

ArcOS is the only independent NOS that offers support for market-leader Broadcom’s cutting-edge merchant silicon product-lines: StrataDNX Jericho+ and the StrataXGS Trident 3. This ability to simultaneously support both internet-scale routing and high-density switching environments is a testament to the uniquely differentiated capabilities of ArcOS.

The impact of ArcOS on the marketplace is already discernible. A Fortune 100 company is deploying Arrcus Inc’s ArcOS NOS as the underlying lynchpin of their massively scalable data center (MSDC) network infrastructure. ArcOS’s modular, programmable network software on industry-leading network silicon Trident 3, from Broadcom, enables them to drive a software-powered network transformation strategy from the Data center to the Edge.


Our customers want the freedom to choose best-in-class products to deliver innovative solutions that solve their most complex problems. Arrcus has brought game-changing capabilities to market while re-defining the business model to make it easier to design, deploy, automate, and manage large scale networking solutions



The networking industry is a large multi-billion market that is dominated by a small number of vertically integrated box vendors. The lack of choice has kept prices high, innovation low and end users have limited control of their networking infrastructure.

History has repeatedly proven that large markets transition from vertical integration to horizontal segmentation. This transition has already occurred in the server, storage and compute tiers: Intel for CPUs, Linux for server OS, white box commodification of storage and Facebook for massively scalable distributed computing applications for the user space are a few examples.

Additionally, there has also been an explosion in next generation networking silicon component options with accelerating feature velocity that will continue to redefine what is possible. As a result, there are many options of fully featured, high quality, cost efficient network hardware systems that are readily available today from multiple ODMs. However, their adoption has been slow due to the lack of a viable independent network operating system that unleashes the transition to best-in-class horizontally segmented solutions. ArcOS solves this problem by enabling open integration with the hardware system of your choice.

As a result, ArcOS enables organizations to lower their overall total cost of ownership while building massively scalable switches and routers across physical, virtual and cloud network environments while delivering superior performance, security, automation and deployment flexibility.

Arrcus Launches Multi-Cloud Networking Platform, Delivering Hyperscale Cloud Connectivity

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Arrcus, the hyperscale networking software company has launched its solution for connecting distributed applications and data with the announcement of Arrcus Multi-Cloud networking (MCN) platform. The Arrcus MCN Platform enables highly available connectivity for workloads and data with hyperscale performance and security across any cloud, any region, and any site. Customers can now, with Arrcus MCN, uniquely sustain the rapid growth of applications and data in distributed locations around the world and leverage a new architecture that delivers hyperscale multi-cloud networking solutions with reliable scale, predictable performance, and seamless orchestration. The solution is powered by ArcOS, a proven, robust, microservices-based network operating system built from first principles that has the industry-leading route scale and convergence times.

software-centric solutions with a common software-powered architecture, common operational capabilities, and a common security posture across all these environments is key to modern digital-first networks. The Arrcus MCN platform, with a simple, scalable, and seamless approach, extends the proven ArcOS hyperscale architecture to meet, exceed and future-proof customers multi-cloud networking requirements, said Scott Raynovich, Chief Analyst at Futuriom.

Enterprises and Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have their assets distributed across various data centers, the edge co-locations, and public cloud infrastructure. Existing solutions, from current vendors and newcomers alike, are siloed, incomplete solutions that unnecessarily drive CapEx and OpEx costs higher. The issues include:

Lack of integration with data center IP Clos due to the legacy cloud routers

Unpredictable performance due to traffic hair-pinning, limited scale, and additional overhead for security

Limited scale due to poor quality of control plane software

Different tool chains, workflows, and operating models for data center and the cloud

The Arrcus MCN platform consists of ArcEdge, which is a secure data plane element and ArcOrchestrator, which is the modern orchestrator that dramatically simplifies and secures cloud connectivity. The Arrcus multi-cloud networking platform delivers the industrys best scalable networking solution to securely and seamlessly interconnect enterprise data centers with any cloud region around the world, with hyperscale performance and cloud-native security. The Arrcus MCN solution is flexible, secure, and automated while providing the following benefits:

Architectural Flexibility

Flexible Hub-Spoke, Mesh, or Hybrid Connectivity

Scale to 1000s of nodes. No data center traffic hairpin

Cloud-scale NAT with overlapping-IP support

Secure Multi-Cloud Performance

Cloud-native security integration with Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure security groups, IAM, and others

Internet as multi-cloud transport

Robust security and AES-256 encryption for all traffic

Modern Orchestration-Ready

ArcOS BGP-based dynamic routing, scale, connectivity

Supports virtual machines and container deployment options

Supports Terraform, Ansible frameworks, and YANG data models

Enterprise multi-cloud adoption is fundamentally a transport challenge; more generally, how one efficiently moves data across such varied networking deployments at the lowest cost. Approximately 90% of SaaS customers require solutions integrating existing data centers with public clouds. Furthermore, these solutions must support both brownfield and greenfield deployments while providing flexibility, predictable application performance, scale, and always on security while supporting a consistent orchestration environment. The Arrcus MCN platform singularly provides the Power of One, a solution that unifies and provides seamless connectivity across the data center, the edge, and the multi-cloud, said Devesh Garg, founder and CEO, Arrcus.
