For the past two years, organizations have cited the flexibility NV delivers as the biggest benefit. When asked to choose all the benefits that apply to NV, an overwhelming 77% picked flexibility. This year, scalability (68%) overtook operational cost savings (52%), which was the distant runner up last year. Interestingly cost savings came in fourth at 31%.
Network virtualization solves a lot of the networking challenges in today’s data centers, helping organizations centrally program and provision the network, on-demand, without having to physically touch the underlying infrastructure.
With NV, organizations can quickly provision (in a matter of minutes versus hours/days), move and scale the network to meet the ever-changing needs of the highly virtualized compute and storage infrastructures. In a world where agility is critical to being competitive, the ability to quickly make adjustments to support the business and optimize the overall experience improves the network’s time-to-value.
