What is a Virtual Cloud Network?

The network of the future is software-defined. A Virtual Cloud Network, built on VMware NSX technology, is a ubiquitous software layer from data center to cloud to edge infrastructure. It provides a secure, consistent foundation that drives your business forward.

What is a Virtual Cloud Network?

Why Virtual Cloud Networking?


With a Virtual Cloud Network, VMware provides pervasive, end-to-end connectivity for apps and data, wherever they are — data center, cloud and the edge — without data silos.


VMware embeds security into the infrastructure, compartmentalizing the network through micro-segmentation, encrypting in-flight data, and automatically detecting and responding to security threats.


Apps have traditionally been held hostage by infrastructure. VMware moves the intelligence that traditionally resided in hardware into software — so you can secure, automate, and draw insights from apps and data.
