Manufacturing and energy systems contain thousands of real time sensors and controls, and frequently need to be reconfigured dynamically based on changes to the application requirements. The need to minimize waste, while at the same time lowering tolerances translates to mountains of data that needs to be processed immediately. The data sets can be reduced locally to decrease cloud transport and storage expenses.

Edge compute pods are comprised of dense servers, GPUs and local data storage, and are largely hands-off to minimize the need for local engineers. They can be dynamically reconfigured based on business need and use a common device sparing model to simplify hardware replacements.

Large data centers are the backbone of any organization that requires a large amount of compute. Operators seek the efficiency and economics enjoyed by the major hyperscalers, but they can't afford to hire a large team of engineers and developers.

Hedgehog Open Network Fabric creates physical networks that can be operated with your existing Cloud Native tools. Because Open Network Fabric uses SONiC as a network operating system, multiple vendors can be considered, opening up supply chain options.

How Hedgehog Helps

Hedgehog creates physical networks with a range of different deployment options to match each location’s technical requirements.

Hedgehog Modernizes Data Center Networking

Hedgehog Open Network Fabric eliminates the need for proprietary networking software and specialized network engineers. Cloud infrastructure teams can operate their own infrastructure with cloud native software and eliminate brittle proprietary operations tools.
