A practical approach to validating Virtualized Networks enabled through SDN and NFV

The technology landscape has evolved radically in the last few years and virtualization has been a godsend to organizations that are looking to drive down their capital and operational expenses while being able to respond to market needs much faster. Interestingly though, while Computing and Storage have progressed leaps and bounds by tapping into the potential of Virtualization, it is only now that Networking seems to be catching on in a major way. Owing to the massive growth in user traffic due to ubiquitous ‘digital transformation’ occurring across various industries, global communications service providers are buckling up to improve customer experience by addressing this demand for data with large scale investments in network scalability.

Virtualization Management with SUSE Manager

whitePaper | November 10, 2019

Virtualization is the means by which IT administrators create virtual resources, such as hardware platforms, storage devices, network resources and more. There are quite a few tools that enable the creation of virtual resources (such as Xen and KVM), but what about the management of those tools? That’s where SUSE Manager comes in. The current iteration of SUSE Manager enables an admin to work with VMs via the following feature set.

vSAN 2-Node Cluster on VxRail Planning Guide

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

VMware vSAN 2-node cluster is a configuration that is implemented in environments where a minimal configuration is a key requirement. VxRail v4.7.100 was the first release to support the vSAN 2-node cluster with direct-connect configuration. Starting with VxRail v4.7.410, vSAN 2-node cluster with switch configuration is also supported.

Intel Page Modification Logging, a hardware virtualization feature: study and improvement for virtual machine working set estimation

whitePaper | January 7, 2020

Intel Page Modification Logging (PML) is a novel hardware feature for tracking virtual machine (VM) accessed memory pages. This task is essential in today’s data centers since it allows, among others, checkpointing, live migration and working set size (WSS) estimation. Relying on the Xen hypervisor, this paper studies PML from three angles: power consumption, efficiency, and performance impact on user applications. Our findings are as follows. First, PML does not incur any power consumption overhead. Second, PML reduces by up to 10.18% both VM live migration and checkpointing time. Third, PML slightly reduces by up to 0.95% the performance degradation on applications incurred by live migration and checkpointing.

THE VIRTUAL CLOUD NETWORK

whitePaper | January 15, 2020

Businesses are evolving faster than ever before. Key technologies such as the cloud, mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT) are enabling organizations to undertake broad and deep digital transformations—changing the way companies operate, creating new business models and lifting employee productivity to new heights. As digital transformation takes root in enterprises, a parallel shift is occurring from massive centralized data centers to the cloud and then to the edge of the network. It is at the edge where customer engagement and rich interactions are now happening; it’s also where customers and enterprises alike generate valuable data and insights. But to make it work—and to extract every bit of value—all of this needs to be connected back to the business.
