Enabling the Virtual Cloud Network
In today’s digital era, applications are the lifeline of businesses. While businesses want to ensure that their critical applications are always available, they also want to make sure that those applications are secure and that the overall cloud infrastructure supporting these applications is optimized. In order to address the needs of businesses to ensure connectivity and security of their applications, VMWare unveiled its vision for the future of networking, the Virtual Cloud Network. The Virtual Cloud Network will enable organizations to create a digital business fabric for connecting and securing applications, data, and users in a hyper-distributed world. The VMWare NSX Data Center portfolio provides the foundation for the Virtual Cloud Network, enabling consistent, pervasive connectivity and security for apps and data across software-defined data center, branch, cloud and telco environments.
