Network Virtualization

With the rise of data center virtualization, cloud, and big data – the network is experiencing unprecedented demands for security, agility, and flexibility. Traditional methods of networking are not designed for the requirements new applications are making on the data center. Today, software defined networking through VMware NSX and Dell Open Networking, disaggregating the networking hardware from the software, are able to provide the optimal solution for organizations to modernize their network. This is achieved through the new paradigm of network virtualization through VMware NSX coupled with the innovation and flexibility of Dell Open Networking. Organizations now are enabled to make major advances in data center security, visibility, automation, economics, and ease of management. Dell offers services to design, build, and support this new paradigm in networking utilizing VMware NSX.
