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.
vCenter plugins are additional features of the vCenter web client that aid in the management of vendor specific operations (on Storage, Networking and virtualization). These plugins are developed by third party developers to provide a vendor specific user interface in vCenter. For example, a Storage vendor can extend the vCenter web client interface
We are well aware about what is a plug-in, so here the focus would be on the concept and usage of plug-ins in computing. To encapsulate the textbook definition, Plug-in is that software component which adds a particular feature to the already existing application or a computer program. VMware also allows this feature in its vSphere Web Client.
Cloud computing is growing at a spectacular pace. Most organizations are either using cloud technology or developing products that support it. VMware’s cloud management tool is called vCloud Director (vCD), which works on Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) architecture. Some key points related to vCloud Director have been mentioned below: VMware vCloud Director uses
There are multiple steps to be followed in order to meet the VMware compliance for certification of any storage (hardware or software defined). First of all the product vendor needs to be Elite partner with VMware in order to certify their product and features and list them on VMware official portal. With this partnership in place VMware provides TAP
Mobility is the demand in current organization. Enterprises are constantly looking to meet the demand of flexibility and work on-the-go for their employees. This has led companies to make their IT infrastructure more flexible and hence move towards Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). However in the coming year advancement in the virtual desktop infrastructure
Both RDS and VDI are core components of desktop virtualization, and they satisfy specific computing requirements and scenarios with deployment readiness and flexibility. VDI and RDS have peculiarities that adapt to the different needs of a business, but making a choice between them could be difficult for some companies. Benefits of Virtual Desktop
Phew! The technical jargons are going the medical naming convention, isn’t it? Practically, they all can be separated to be on their own, so let’s define them separately & then combine them together to see what we get. Layman definition of the individual Terms: Hybrid: It literally means many things build into 1 single Unit, Scalable: It means
2017 looks to be a promising year for software-defined networking (SDN) enthusiasts. According to recent research by IDC, the worldwide SDN market is expected to grow to $12.5 billion by 2020. This includes physical network infrastructure, control software, SDN applications, and last but not least professional services. Software-defined networking gained
Containers are tools that run multiple applications on a single host. Docker is one such open source tool which runs on Linux. Docker technology is very similar to Virtualization, except the fact that containers are more efficient and cost effective while virtualizing the operating system because they run multiple workloads on a single host.
