Faction has been busy over the past few months.
In December, the company released its Faction Internetwork eXchange (FIX), which enables zero configuration multi-cloud and hybrid cloud solutions. One month later, Faction started the year off with $11 million in funding for cloud innovation and continued company growth, followed by two new patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in less than 2 months.
The latest patent, US Patent #9,621,374, was announced today. It extends the functionality of hybrid and multi-cloud to new protocols including Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) and Software Defined Networking (SDN).
VXLAN technology is attractive to enterprises as it works to improve scalability challenges associated with large cloud deployments. SDN technology enables networks to add agility and flexibility, while allowing administrators to respond quickly through a centralized control location.
“Our newest patent further validates Faction’s intellectual property leadership in hybrid and multi-cloud solutions,” states Luke Norris, Faction’s CEO and Founder. “By choosing Faction cloud, enterprises and service providers can take advantage of the many benefits inherent in combining the best features of private and public clouds – truly creating a cutting-edge approach to IT cloud transformation. Our patent leadership also paves the way for clients to leverage future cloud capabilities and allows Faction to confidently meet the sharp increase in demand we are seeing from enterprises seeking to establish hybrid and multi-cloud cloud strategies.”
Other Hybrid/Multi-Cloud Innovations
The new patent comes on the heels of Faction’s recently announced USPTO Patent #9,571,301 for the company’s pioneering work on hybrid and multi-cloud networking. The technology allows users to tap into the best features of private and public clouds to create one unified, optimized cloud.
In addition, Faction Cloud Bloc and Faction Internetwork eXchange (FIX) product sets are powered by the company’s hybrid and multi-cloud technology. These services create a unified data fabric and reduce the costs and complexities associated with managing multiple cloud environments.

Faction is helping service providers and enterprises alike with a host of the biggest current market challenges, including hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, SDN and VXLAN. All of this adds up to mean that Faction is at the forefront of the latest hybrid and multi-cloud solutions.
