Move to the cloud with the flip of a switch!
Introducing cloudSwXtch - a virtual overlay network that lets you build a high-performance network on top of your cloud network without changing your application code. AWS Multicast, Azure Multicast and Google Cloud Multicast
is now here!
A seamless bridge to the Cloud
High performance multicast network
Complete your cloud transformation with cloudSwXtch, the first and only platform enabling AWS multicast, Azure multicast and Google Cloud multicast in on-prem-to-cloud and cloud-to-cloud environments alike--with just one click.
Zero code changes
cloudSwXtch also allows systems that require control of low level network features to migrate without changing software.
Your business can now move at the speed of software. Deliver millions of packets per second & support unlimited endpoints with low microsecond latency.
Key product features
Take any packet protocol and fan it out to another packet protocol; forward a multicast stream to many receivers, while also mapping the multicast stream to many unicast devices alleviating the need for the sending device to send it in both protocols while making the network more efficient and reducing Egress costs.
Meshes connects cloudSwXtches in a variety of dispersed network locations – different Virtual Networks, regions, clouds, subnets, etc.). Additionally, a mesh is a way to group two or more cloudSwXtch devices together to act as one to enhance network performance.
Ground to Cloud <==> Cloud to Ground
integrates on-prem and cloud networks, creating a single data path.
Visibility down to the packet level for enhanced Monitoring and Quality of Service (QoS). wXcked Eye is our monitoring UI that enables users to audit the performance of their cloudSwXtch network. A REST API is provided to manage and control your network your way.

What cloud networks does cloudSwXtch support?
CloudSwXtch is available for AWS marketplace and Azure marketplace today, and it available for deployment in the Google Cloud. It will soon be available for Oracle Cloud as well.
How do I set up my cloudSwXtch?
cloudSwXtch is very easy to deploy from the Azure and AWS Marketplaces, and Google Cloud. After setting a few simple parameters, a user creates the virtual network which deploys a cloudSwXtch into their Azure, AWS or Google Cloud tenant. Any virtual machines that wish to connect to the cloudSwXtch must retrieve an xNIC from the cloudSwXtch by running a simple bash script.
Can I send multicast traffic into my AWS network with swXtch?
Yes. cloudSwXtch enables AWS multicast applications.
Can I send multicast traffic from my on-prem systems into Azure?
The cloudSwXtch architecture includes a lightweight VM component that allows external networks to create AWS multicast or Azure multicast and move traffic between Azure data centers.
Can I send multicast traffic across Azure vNets?
cloudSwXtch supports moving multicast traffic between Azure vNets, within or between Availability Zones.
Which version of IGMP does cloudSwXtch support?
cloudSwXtch is fully compliant with IGMP Version 2, and partially compliant with IGMP Version 3. cloudSwXtch currently supports many of the features of IGMP Version 3 that are in common use, and will fully support IGMP version 3 in a future release.
Which operating systems do the xNICs run on?
xNICs are available for virtual machines that run RHEL 7 or later, CentOS 7 or later, Ubuntu 18.04 or later, Windows Server 2016 and 2019. These operating systems must run on an x86_64 CPU.
What features are available today on a cloudSwXtch?
The first release of cloudSwXtch allows users to transmit multicast traffic on or into the cloud. The multicast network behaves as if it were implemented on physical hardware. It uses standard IGMP-compliant methods to allow multicast producers and consumers to leave or join multicast groups.
What is a cloudSwXtch?
cloudSwXtch is a virtual overlay network that runs in your AWS or Azure tenant. It creates a standards-compliant network by deploying virtual network switches and virtual Network Interface Controllers (xNICs) that allow software workloads running on virtual machines to distribute their information as if they were running on a physical network. Many features not available on cloud networks, like multicast, PTP, packet pacing, custom packet filtering, and others may be implemented as features on this virtual network.
Now deployable on Azure, AWS and Google Cloud Networks
