VeriStor Practice Lead, Networking
Businesses need three things to compete in today’s world – Speed, Agility and Security. This – according to the keynote presentation by Scott Lowe, Engineering Architect at VMWare during our Tech Summit seminar, “Next Generation Network Strategies in a Cloud World” – is exactly what the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) can provide.
During the session, Lowe outlined the key elements of SDDC and how software-centric innovations are transforming networking in the key areas of virtual switching, SDN, NFV and VNFs and tunnels and overlay protocols.
What benefits result? Lowe points out that by pulling these innovations together through network virtualization, organizations are able to achieve new ways of operating. How? He says consider how network virtualization can enable new ways of operating the following five processes:
- Policy-driven networking
- Enhanced security through microsegmentation
- Programmatic deployment of network topologies and network services
- Seamless integration of new workload types
- Cross-cloud networking and security
Through network virtualization, organizations truly can achieve the speed, agility and security they require to do more with their infrastructure and challenge the status quo in their networks.
