Why would anyone want to run applications on their network switches?

It starts with acknowledging just how much data we are all dealing with. Massive. That data needs to be collected and analyzed so that it can be acted upon. Faster.

It’s become unwieldy to do this processing in remote servers. Collecting and analyzing data at the edge and making decisions locally rather than in centralized servers significantly reduces the latency and bandwidth of the network. But it also assumes a level of intelligence, or context that can be shared with the network.

Powered by an x86 CPU, the application hosting solution on the Cisco Catalyst 9000 series switches provides the intelligence required at the edge. Native docker engine support on Catalyst switches enables you to build and bring your own applications without additional packaging.

Cisco DNA Center now provides consistent workflows to manage the entire application lifecycle across multiple Catalyst 9000 series switches through the “App Hosting” dashboard.
