The VMware Cross Cloud Architecture offers an easy way to run, manage, connect and secure applications across clouds and devices in a common operating environment. We can assist you with VMware Network Virtualization regarding strategy and implementation for the VMware CrossCloud Architecture. Private clouds need more than automated provisioning. For your private cloud to compete with public options, you must account for cost, time to market, service levels and operations. VMware consultants understand private cloud complexity, helping architect your solution over multiple data centers, geographies and business requirements. Drive efficiency in core business applications and create the platform that enables your digital transformation. VMware consultants help you take a holistic approach to infrastructure, looking across silos to design and implement solutions that deliver immediate outcomes and future proof cross cloud initiatives.

VMware Virtualization Network Security

Manual and complex provisioning processes, typically still anchored to hardware, also constrain speed and agility. VMware Network Virtualization takes a platform approach to network virtualization and provisioning that spans multiple infrastructures. And we know how to form cross functional teams for optimal outcomes across security, network, virtualization and business units. VMware NSX embeds security functions right into the hypervisor. It delivers micro-segmentation and granular security to the individual workload, enabling a fundamentally more secure data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology. VMware NSX enables micro-segmentation and granular security of workloads in virtualized networks, isolating sensitive systems and reducing both risk and scope of compliance. Use VMware NSX to help ensure and demonstrate compliance with regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC, CJIS, and more.

Benefits

Servers deployed the conventional way operate at less than 15 percent of capacity. Virtualization rewrites the entire equation. CPU and memory are decoupled from physical hardware, creating pools of resources for use wherever needed. Each virtualized application and its operating system are encapsulated in a separate, isolated software container called a virtual machine (VM). Many VMs can be run simultaneously on each server, putting the majority of hardware capacity to productive use. As the foundation for VMware’s complete software-defined data center platform, vSphere with Operations Management is the starting point for building your software-defined data center.

With vSphere in place, you can seamlessly extend virtualization to storage and network services and add automated, policy-based provisioning and management. In contrast to SDN, in which hardware remains the driving force, VMware network virtualization technology truly decouples network resources from underlying hardware. Virtualization principles are applied to physical network infrastructure, abstracting network services to create a flexible pool of transport capacity that can be allocated, utilized and repurposed on demand.

Features

With a scale-out and resilient operations platform, administrators get control over performance, capacity and configuration management. Predictive analytics and smart alerts help identify and rectify potential issues before they impact service quality. Intuitive performance dashboards provide app-to-storage visibility across physical, virtual and cloud environments. Log management capabilities extend analytics to unstructured data, for better visibility and faster problem resolution. Over and under provisioned VMs are right-sized to balance service level requirements with resource utilization.

Powerful capacity modeling identifies “what if” scenarios to anticipate and optimize future infrastructure spend. CIOs and IT executives can demonstrate and compare the costs of complex initiatives and investments, including private and public clouds. Users can see the cost of service in the service catalog. Visibility and transparency of the types, cost and quality of IT services consumed by a business unit, enable show and charge back the quantity and types of IT services consumed. Industry benchmark data and reporting help compare IT expenses to peer companies and cloud service providers, for informed sourcing decisions that drive down costs.

Software-Defined Storage

VMware’s Software-Defined Storage (SDS) strategy is to evolve storage architectures through the pervasive hypervisor, bringing to storage the simplicity, efficiency, and cost-savings that server virtualization brought to compute. Software-defined storage abstracts the underlying storage through a virtual data plane, making the VM, and thus the application, the fundamental unit of storage provisioning and management across heterogeneous storage systems. By creating a flexible separation between applications and available resources, the hypervisor can balance all IT resources — compute, memory, storage and networking — needed by an application.

Software-defined storage solutions enhance today’s data center by delivering per-application storage services, SDS applies at the VM level, allowing storage services to be tailored to the precise requirements of an application and adjusted as needed on a per-application basis, without affecting neighboring applications. Administrators are in complete control of which storage services, and therefore costs, are consumed by which application. SDS uses a dynamic and non-disruptive model, just as in compute virtualization. IT admins can precisely match application demand and supply at the exact time the resources are needed. Storage services become fluid — a little more for this application now, a little less for that one later.

Virtualization

In a close analogy to the virtual machine, a virtualized network is a software container that presents logical network components — logical switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, VPNs and more — to connected workloads. These virtualized networks are programmatically created, provisioned and managed, with the underlying physical network serving as a simple packet—forwarding back plane. Network and security services are allocated to each VM according to its needs, and stay attached to it as the VM moves among hosts in the dynamic virtualized environment.

VMware’s network virtualization platform — VMware NSX — deploys on top of existing physical network hardware and supports the newest fabrics and geometries from all vendors. Existing applications and monitoring tools work smoothly with NSX without any modifications.

VMware NSX

VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to workloads using a policy driven approach. This automates networking operations and eliminates bottlenecks associated with hardware based networks. The provisioning and configuration management of IT applications and services is often a manual, slow, error prone and inconsistent exercise. It can result in critical security and operational bottlenecks for the business and puts an organization at a competitive disadvantage. These challenges extend to networking and security, the last major pillar of the data center that has been lacking automation capabilities that truly remedy the shortcomings of legacy approaches.

VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform that enables the automation of networking and security services. Applications and data can reside and be accessible anywhere. With VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking you can reduce the time to provision entire networks in software from weeks to seconds. It abstracts virtual networks from the underlying physical network, providing the flexibility to run on top of any network hardware. With improved operational efficiency through automation, network operators can achieve faster deployment and greater agility. Enables network micro segmentation.
