Improving Data Center Agility With Network Virtualization

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Abstract

As virtualization evolves from automated provisioning of virtual servers to end-to-end provisioning of applications, organizations face several network-related challenges. They must not only automate the provisioning of networks to match the reconfiguration of server resources but also link their automation processes with the application-level orchestration life cycle. In 2013, the established networking vendors, along with several startups, launched a variety of network virtualization solutions, often under the umbrella of SDN. This Gartner report will help navigate through the maze of new network virtualization products by providing a framework to help organizations articulate their network agility needs and differentiate the available product offerings.
