Unleash the Power of the Cloud
Enterprise compute and applications have made the leap into the cloud, but the traditional data center network is holding organizations back from reaping the full benefits of that virtualization.
A new video from Nuage Networks looks at how the cloud has changed the way we use networks today and how software-defined networking (SDN) can act as the “glue” between the network and the cloud. “Unleash the Power of the Cloud” is the second in a series of videos from Nuage Networks looking at how the company is removing the constraints holding back the cloud.
While applications and compute platforms have been virtualized in the cloud, most networks still need to be manually instantiated device by device. The decoupling of hardware and software in SDN environments can fundamentally improve how people design, procure, and manage their networks.
- Scales infrastructure within and across data centers
- Automates instantiation of connectivity
- Optimizes efficiency of data center assets
Future videos in this series will continue to explain how the company is addressing multi-data-center, hybrid cloud/WAN integration problems – in a simple way that provides multivendor interoperability between hardware and software solutions. The videos will also illustrate how SDN removes the barriers to take full advantage of the cloud, and how Nuage Networks is delivering “the power of now” to data center networks.
To take full advantage of the efficiencies offered by virtualization, the data center network needs to catch up with applications and compute by becoming instantaneous and automated. Check out “Unleash the Power of the Cloud” below, and keep an eye out for future installments that show how Nuage Networks SDN works to help customers deliver on the promise of the cloud.
