Network Virtualization In Action: Phoenix NAP

Phoenix NAP® is a full service data center and primary network access point (NAP) offering cloud services, dedicated server hosting, colocation, and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). William Bell, vice president of product development, cloud and enterprise services at Phoenix NAP, tells us that the company has implemented VMware network virtualization as a business-critical component of their new Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC).

“Network virtualization forms the foundation of everything else we’re able to do from a service delivery perspective, and it’s a major reason why we were able to extend our services globally to increase our business opportunities.”

 

Phoenix NAP’s VPDC combines leading-edge technologies, including network virtualization from VMware, to enable customers to rapidly extend their current IT environments to the cloud without high costs or lengthy timelines. Using VMware network virtualization technology, Phoenix NAP dynamically create virtual networks with advanced security services that are completely decoupled and independent from the physical network hardware. Phoenix NAP abstracts the network from physical underlying hardware to provide an integrated point-and-click network environment that enables customers to deploy their product closer to their locations. This allows Phoenix NAP to more efficiently utilize existing data center infrastructure, while reconnecting legacy environments within virtualized networks for customers.

“Network virtualization from VMware has freed us from the constraints of physical networking. We have more flexibility in determining where, when and how we advanced cloud services to our customers, and we have the agility to expand and contract those services in near real-time in an automated and programmatic way.”

 

The use of network virtualization reduces the time it takes Phoenix NAP to help customers extend their IT infrastructure to the cloud and more easily adopt infrastructure-as-a-service to improve their business agility.

Network Virtualization in Action: NTT Communications

Today we are kicking off a new blog series called “Network Virtualization In Action” where we bring you the voice of the customer discussing their deployments or decisions around network virtualization.

Now it goes without saying that Japan has always been known as a technology hot bed. So it seems only fitting that we announced this week that NTT Communications (NTT Com), the cloud service provider of one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies NTT Group, will deploy VMware network virtualization as a core technology for its new cloud service, Enterprise Cloud (EC).We’re excited that representatives of NTT Com will join VMware’s Martin Casado on stage at Interop Tokyo this Friday, June 15, to share their story.

So why is this technological innovator turning to VMware network virtualization to support its new EC service?  Take a read of this post on the VMware Company Blog for all of the details.
