VMware Horizon and NSX Data Center: Network and Security for Virtual Desktops

October 2, 2018

As bad actors become increasingly sophisticated in the ways they access business-critical and proprietary information, organizations must be ever vigilant in protecting their intellectual property—and their users. One of the primary means to protect the enterprise and improve security is the use of virtual desktops. In fact, improved security is a primary driver of organizations incorporating virtual desktops into their workspace delivery strategies. As such, companies are continuing to attain success by deploying virtual desktops and improving control of the environment, while reducing the burden on IT to manage images, applications, updates, and patches, and expend valuable resources for ongoing troubleshooting.

NSX-T Data Center Installation Guide - VMware NSX-T Data Center 2.4

whitePaper | February 28, 2020

In the same way that server virtualization programmatically creates and manages virtual machines, NSXT Data Center network virtualization programmatically creates and managed software-based virtual networks. With network virtualization, the functional equivalent of a network hypervisor reproduces the complete set of Layer 2 through Layer 7 networking services (for example, switching, routing, access control, firewalling, QoS) in software. As a result, these services can be programmatically assembled in any arbitrary combination, to produce unique, isolated virtual networks in a matter of seconds.

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).

Virtualized RAN Challenges Debunked

whitePaper | January 17, 2020

Mobile network operators (MNOs) are now considering ways to take advantage of the benefits that Virtualized RAN (vRAN) can deliver. vRAN gives MNOs greater network availability and better deployment flexibility using pooled, centralized resources that are operating on standardized commercially available hardware. The virtualized functions that provide the network’s baseband processing in vRANs also lower CAPEX and OPEX by reducing cell site real-estate space and the power needs of the equipment that no longer resides on-site.

Developing Virtual Reality (VR) products

whitePaper | February 18, 2021

Extended Reality (XR) technologies will be key trends to watch out for in 2021 and beyond. We are likely to see a landslide of innovative products, applications, and use-cases delivering ever more realistic immersive experiences. Most of us have our first experiences of Virtual Reality (VR) in gaming and entertainment. However, research shows that the industries and enterprises are quickly becoming the most prominent users of XR, particularly Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR) technologies. Developing custom VR devices is exceptionally challenging. Virtual Reality devices are incredibly complicated and highly integrated products. Each component, every line of code, and all the materials, design, and development choices have a universal effect on the device and determine how well it functions and what kind of user experience it delivers. We at Haltian have years of renowned product design and development experience with wearable devices, IoT solutions and successful VR devices. In this whitepaper, we describe ten crucial design considerations to help developers of VR devices succeed in their product development endeavour!

Cisco ACI Multi-Site Architecture

whitePaper | August 3, 2021

With the increasing adoption of Cisco® Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACI®) as a pervasive fabric technology, enterprises and service providers commonly need to interconnect separate Cisco ACI fabrics. Business requirements (business continuance, disaster avoidance, etc.) lead to the deployment of separate data center fabrics, and these need to be interconnected with each other. Depending on the deployment option used (and as explained in this document), these fabrics may be called pods or fabrics and sites.
