Networks Systems


Network virtualization is a key building block for cloud-based solutions that offer enterprises less management-heavy IT, with optimized resources, higher quality user experiences, greater flexibility and agility, and improved reliability—all at lower costs than traditional hardware-based networks.

With virtual networks, many tasks that would otherwise require additional hardware to be managed on-site can be offloaded to software.

Virtual Networks can be configured and structured in multiple way according to business needs. Compared to physical servers, which can take days or weeks to be provisioned for new applications and workloads, with Network virtualization it can be done quickly.

By decentralizing office IT, businesses can extend their networks and resources to other branches and employees can access the server remotely using an Internet connection.

Virtualization Can Increase IT Agility, Flexibility and Scalability While Creating Significant Cost Savings


VMware Reduces Expenses While Boosting Agility

VMware ESXi (formerly ESX) is an enterprise-class, type-1 hypervisor developed by VMware for deploying and serving virtual computers. Create a software-based—or virtual—representation of applications, servers, storage and networks to reduce IT expenses while boosting efficiency and agility.

VMware Cross-Cloud Services provides an integration of services to build, run and secure applications across any cloud. VMware can empower your business in three critical ways:

  1. Independence: Cross-Cloud Services gives your business maximum flexibility and choice across any cloud network.
  2. Agility & Speed: VMware helps to accelerate your cloud journey.
  3. Spend Less: Achieve massive gains in cost-efficiency.

Take back control of your multi-cloud environment with VMware. With their integrated portfolio of SaaS solutions, it can help your business build, run, manage and secure all your applications across the cloud. Enterprises need to explore what kind of solutions VMware can provide by accelerating your digital transformation across any applications, any cloud network, and any device:

  • Cloud Infrastructure: Create a consistent environment that can simplifies application modernization and multi-cloud operations.
  • Networking: Accelerate modern application operations with network and security virtualization for WAN, data centers and cloud.
  • App Platform: Build new cloud native apps, modernize existing apps, and operate infrastructure that serves them all across any cloud.
  • Anywhere Workspace: Enable any employee to work anywhere, anytime with seamless employee experiences.
  • Security: Leverage your infrastructure across any app, any cloud and any device for intrinsic security at every layer.
  • Telco Cloud: Deliver any application, on any cloud, anywhere from the core and the RAN to the edge and cloud.

Virtualization relies on software to simulate hardware functionality and create a virtual computer system. This enables IT organizations to run more than one virtual system, applications, and multiple operating systems on a single server. Here are the different types of VMware virtualizations:

  • Desktop Virtualization: Enables IT organizations to respond faster to changing workplace needs and emerging opportunities.
  • Network Virtualization: Allows applications to run on a virtual network as if they were running on a physical network — but with greater operational benefits and all the hardware independencies of virtualization.
  • Server Virtualization: Enables multiple operating systems to run on a single physical server as highly efficient virtual machines

Hyper-V Gives You More Flexibility

Hyper-V was developed by Microsoft to address the growing interest in virtualization technology, which allows for multiple operating systems to be installed on one physical server by pooling the available resources of the host server to consolidate existing infrastructures into a higher-density environment with a smaller physical footprint.

Hyper-V It lets you create and run a software version of a computer, called a virtual machine with each virtual machine acting like a complete computer, running an operating system and programs. Virtual machines can give you more flexibility, help save time and money, and it's a more efficient way than using hardware that's just running one operating system on a physical hardware.

Hyper-V can assist in ways that can benefit your business today:

  • Improve Business Continuity: Minimize the impact of both scheduled and unscheduled downtime of your workloads.
  • Make Development sand Test More Efficiently: Reproduce different computing environments without having to buy or maintain all the hardware you'd need if you only used physical systems.
  • Establish or Expand A Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI): VDI can help you increase business agility and data security, as well as simplify regulatory compliance and manage desktop operating systems and applications.
  • Establish or Expand A Private Cloud Environment: Provide more flexible, on-demand IT services by moving to or expanding your use of shared resources.
  • Use your hardware More Effectively: Consolidate servers and workloads onto fewer, more powerful physical computers to use less power and physical space.

Hyper-V offers Networking, performance, storage and security features that can replace old hardware products, such as Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Virtual Server, and Windows Virtual PC. Hyper-V offers many features that can revolutionize your business today:

  • Security: Secure boot and shielded virtual machines help protect against malware and other unauthorized access to a virtual machine and its data.
  • Remote Connectivity: Hyper-V includes Virtual Machine Connection, a remote connection tool for use with both Windows and Linux. Unlike Remote Desktop, this tool gives you console access, so you can see what's happening even when the operating system isn't booted yet.
  • Portability: Features such as live migration, storage migration, and import/export make it easier to move or distribute a virtual machine.
  • Computing Environment: Hyper-V virtual machine includes the same basic parts as a physical computer, such as memory, processor, storage, and networking. All these parts have features and options that you can configure different ways to meet different needs.
  • Disaster Recovery and Backup: For disaster recovery, Hyper-V Replica creates copies of virtual machines, intended to be stored in another physical location, so you can restore the virtual machine from the copy. For backup, Hyper-V uses saved states so you can make application-consistent backups for programs.
