Clubbing of individual components of a Datacenter to form a single node is called a Converged Infrastructure. Clubbing of Software-Defined components to form a node is called Hyper-Converged Infrastructure. The next era is going to be the era of Hybrid Infrastructure where few components will be hardware-based and few will be software-based.
This post focuses on a case study of evaluation of NFV architecture components i.e. VNFs (virtual network functions) and VIM (virtual infrastructure manager) to deliver best-in-class performance to end users and offer a valid approach to active testing.
Here's how open source is helping advance network optimization to support emerging technologies. There is a growing demand for efficient networks with low latency and high bandwidth to support innovations such as autonomous cars, connected devices, machine learning, augmented and virtual reality, and real-time analytics.
Typically, in large scale data center deployment and management, different components of a data center are managed by different system administrators. To get the provisioning or updating of instructions processed, certain iterations have to be followed by the admins. As data center surged towards cloud-managed, a need for having a single console emerged ...
This article throws light on the advantages of using vSphere web client storage plugin to deal with data center storage. Also, this article talks about the overview on development and testing of vSphere storage plugin and what are prerequisites for development
There are a significant amount of advantages of using container-based VNFs rather than hypervisor driven. But if we look at the current stage of NFV progress in NFV technology innovation was not much faster which were anticipated in 2012 due to lack of common guidelines model. But now, 5G networks are started to deploy and tested in
VMware vRealize Operations Manager is a vMware product that delivers the quick operations management with application for storage observable across physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures. Using policy based automation, operations team automate key processes and improves IT efficiency.
RBAC is a way to provide an access to the logged in user in vCenter server. The administrator user can create roles and assign privileges to the user for role based access control. In vCenter plugin, we can manage RBAC by creating specific privileges, like read only snapshot dashboard, Limited access to Datastore operations.
Certification is a way or a process that helps a company to have and establish credibility of their product in terms of quality and standards set by the certifying authority. There are different types of certifications done and provided by certifying authorities like VMware, Citrix, Microsoft etc. Storage or Virtualization companies who wish to opt ..
This article is focused on basics of VNFs: what are virtual network functions (VNFs), architecture of virtual network functions (VNFs), what are the basic components (VNFC and VNF Descriptors (VNFD)), challenges with current VNF development and onboarding to NFV environment and how cloud native VNFs can help overcome the challenges.
