United States : VMWARE to fill in more layers of its software STACK [TendersInfo (India)]
(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Vmware would be adding more layers of its software stack for operating its envisioned software defined data center (SDDC).
As per Peter Wei, a VMware senior director of product marketing, "IT should be able to provision a production environment in minutes. People want things very quickly, so you have to abstract the IT infrastructure . Otherwise it is not possible. People got the concept of SDDC, so some of the focus this year is how do we make it real".
VMware has been expanding its core focus from virtualizing servers to a much broader task of virtualizing all the operations in a data center, using an architecture it calls SDDC from past few years. With SDDC, all of an organization's infrastructure is virtualized, allowing data center administrators, in theory, to easily automate operations. This year's VMworld conference will provide more details about the products and protocols that could make SDDC a reality.
HePeter Wei observed that the internal company surveys showed that 77 percent of VMware customers are thinking about expanding their virtualization strategy to storage and networking. To this end, the company is introducing new virtualization technologies for networking and storage.
Perhaps the most buzz for this year's show is around network virtualization. At the conference, VMware will introduce products for its Network Virtualization Platform, NSX. Borrowing technology from VMware's 2012 acquisition of Nicira, NSX virtualizes the networking layers of the OSI (Open Systems Interconnection) communications model.
With NSX, administrators could execute and automate a wide variety of network configuration tasks, including the provisioning of switches, routers, load balancers, and virtual private networks.
