Gitex2013: AUTOMATE YOUR DATACENTER BY VIRTUALIZING YOUR NETWORK

283

Published on

Where are those communication applications and your data and are they secured? Virtualizing the network is a must for the Datacenter. With the POD architecture you minimize cost and keep huge flexibility. With VMM and the 0 network latency you maximize the Datacenter usage and reduce delay as well as cost of operation. If you have bandwidth intense needs, the SDN architecture is a must for you.
