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).

Security of the VMware vSphere Hypervisor.

whitePaper | May 1, 2022

Virtualization addresses IT’s most pressing challenge: the infrastructure sprawl that compels IT departments to channel 70 percent of their budget into maintenance, leaving scant resources for business-building innovation. The difficulty stems from the architecture of today’s x86 computers: they’re designed to run just one operating system (OS) and application at a time. As a result, even small data centers must deploy many servers, each operating at just 5–15 percent of capacity—highly inefficient by any standard.
