vCloud NFV is a fully integrated, modular, multi-tenant Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platform. It provides compute, storage, networking, management and operations capabilities. vCloud NFV helps you accelerate time to revenue, automate service lifecycle and simplify operations management—all while reducing network infrastructure costs.
Architect the network for optimum application response, scale, and service continuity using resource guarantees, isolation, monitoring, and closed loop remediation. Achieve low-latency data plane performance and scaling through Enhanced Platform Awareness, NSX managed Virtual Distributed Switch in Enhanced Data Path mode, and DPDK.
Implement continuous performance optimization based on business and operational intent. Improve capacity utilization through Real-time predictive capacity analytics and automatic resource reclamation. Realize 360-degree network visibility with automatic topology discovery, converged overlay and underlay visibility, and real-time network insights.
Achieve powerful network resiliency, seamless cross-cloud application continuity, and complete multi-tenant service isolation. Reduce costs through consolidated network functions and simplified management. Deploy security policies both within and between VNFs in both VM and container form-factors using micro-segmentation.
Accelerate NFV deployments anywhere from the data center to cloud, to branch and the edge, using open APIs to manage the NFV lifecycle. Facilitate new revenue opportunities with the scale, performance, and flexibility of streamlined onboarding of VNF workloads and policies in hybrid cloud-native environments with support for VMs and containers.
This eBook guides readers on the key requirements for CSPs adopting an NFV architecture, and how vCloud NFV can enable CSPs to accelerate service innovation and deploy an agile network.
