Big Data Performance on VMware Cloud on AWS

August 16, 2018

Both traditional on-premises virtualized private clouds and the new VMware Cloud on AWS provide users the benefits of server consolidation, manageability, and flexibility that VMware brings to the table. To gauge the relative merits of on-premises vs. VMware Cloud on AWS from a Big Data performance point of view, similarly configured 8-server clusters were built in both environments, and the same set of Spark benchmarks were run on both. Performance was very similar, leaving customers with two excellent options for running their Big Data workloads.

Network as a programmable service

whitePaper | November 10, 2021

Over the past decade, the cloud has become integral to nearly every digital and business transformation strategy, allowing clients to access the latest technologies, such as IoT, high-performance computing, and blockchain from multiple vendors to reimagine business processes and ecosystems. However, the network and the inter-connectivity across physical infrastructure, virtual infrastructure, and “as-a-service” ingestion points hinder or block broad cloud adoption across the enterprise. Traditional networking approaches make it difficult to keep pace with change and take advantage of new and differentiating technology. Today’s leading network service providers are virtualizing the network, separating the proprietary network appliance functions into discrete hardware and software components. This enables networks to achieve the same benefits already realized with the virtualization and software-defined enablement of systems and storage. The virtualization of the network is recognized as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Virtualized Network Functions (VNF).
