Hyperconverged infrastructure requires IT organizations to consider a scale out architecture.
While cloud computing represents a significant advance, it's really the network edge computing phenomenon that will transform the digital end user experience.
While software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) don’t necessarily require each other to add value to an enterprise, they are collectively being joined at the proverbial hip.
For as long as any of us can remember, fulfillment and assurance were two independent processes, mostly because they were conceived, operated and purchased by separate departments.
The NV market continues to grow and evolve, supporting many different technologies and vendor platforms as customers look for the right mix.
It’s becoming clear that a smarter NIC will be crucial to white boxes built for NFV and SDN applications.
The industry seeks to address interoperability among network virtualization (NV) implementations, but getting networking vendors to work together remains a challenge.
Industry growth is being hampered by a lack of IT professionals who have the skills required to deploy network virtualization (NV) and software-defined networking (SDN) in the enterprise.
In the move to the telco cloud, some key considerations are crucial in NFVI components selection.
As providers of container networking platforms jostle for position, the industry is eagerly awaiting the emergence of container networking interoperability.
Industry experts are still debating whether white boxes can take over the networking world.
A debate is starting to roil the networking community, centered around the amount of sprawl network virtualization might spawn across the enterprise.
In the move to the telco cloud and NFV, there are a number of risks associated with implementing a fully virtualized system.
Not everything has to be hyperscale. IT departments are looking at different models of modeling to the cloud, using NFV technology and microservices for different levels of scale.
Virtualization can help IT organizations break down the silos that exist between application developers and enable operations teams to deliver real-time IT.
