These days, agility is the new cheap. Whereas traditional networking goals focused on building a better network for less, the relentless pressure of more data and more access methods anytime, anywhere is making it critical for networks today to be agile and responsive. Compute and storage virtualization have become cornerstones for cloud architectures engaged to handle this demand, but until recently, network virtualization was a step behind. Now the network is going virtual as well, but the question for many remains: Where to begin?
We’ve developed a special report to help you answer this question. The SDNCentral Network Virtualization Report provides a timely, valuable guide to the industry today. From a high-level look at business benefits of network virtualization to pertinently detailed company profiles, the report examines the main approaches to network virtualization today and what your organization should consider when looking at network virtualization solutions.
The network virtualization field is young, and established vendors are duking it out with upstarts looking to take advantage of the shift from old networking paradigms to the new. How do you decide if network virtualization is even right for your organization? What do you look for in a network virtualization solution? How does network virtualization fit in with software-defined networking (SDN)? And how do you know which vendors to even approach, let alone what questions to ask?
The SDNCentral Network Virtualization Report examines benefits and challenges of the main approaches to network virtualization today, vendors who provide them, and best fit use cases. The bulk of the report consists of detailed profiles of vendors in the ecosystem to help you find the one that could best fit your needs. Each profile is a collaborative effort between SDNCentral’s research team and vendor product experts. For each vendor, the report includes:
- Virtualization strategy overview
- Company size focus and target verticals
- Value proposition
- SDN product names and protocols
- Deployment location focus
- Physical infrastructure integration
- Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, Layer 4-7 service insertion capabilities
- Compatible hypervisors
- Pricing model
- Ideal customer use cases
Network virtualization allows data centers to provide the full suite of cloud capabilities, from on-demand self-service and rapid elasticity, to flexible billing and department chargebacks – all across compute, storage, and finally, networking.
