The data center is driving toward a more software-centric security model and security performance in NFV will be key.
With The Linux Foundation taking charge of Open vSwitch, a new future for the open source project takes shape.
IT experts are increasingly looking at securing the cloud using SDN technologies, which add policy awareness and features such as microsegmentation.
Network virtualization and SDN technology can add to network security by enabling a secure DMZ in the data center.
Hardware acceleration can boost adoption of network function virtualization (NFV) technology by providing a more powerful platform.
Big data and analytics are transforming Network Virtualization (NV) by taking advantage of new sources of data and providing analytics tools that can link to automation in software-defined networks (SDNs).
With higher traffic demands on the S/Gi-LAN in mobile networks, converged platforms will help reduce the costs of processing IP traffic.
Network virtualization (NV) is starting to blur the lines between the LAN and the WAN.
The combination of new network hardware acceleration techniques and SDN is driving a new era of networking.
Virtualization of the S/Gi-LAN in mobile networks through the use of converged platforms can improve security.
While 5G standards or definitions don’t yet exist, it’s becoming clear that the technology has the chance to become a big driver of the network virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN) markets.
Docker containers are clearly transforming nearly every aspect of IT these days – and networking is no exception.
With higher traffic demands on the SGi/Gi-LAN in mobile networks, the move towards converged platforms enables increased efficiency in processing IP traffic.
Neutron networking open-source options are expanding for OpenStack, but users are still relying heavily on proprietary network virtualization solutions.
While the SDN market isn’t taking off as much as everybody would like, it’s being implemented in many customer deployments for key data center use cases.
