By : |August 30, 2019 0

VMware, the provider of software for complex digital infrastructure, at its annual event VMworld 2019 being held at San Francisco in the US announced a host of new products and solutions. There was major progress on the Virtual Cloud Network front. The Avi Networks Platform has been succeeded by software-defined application services product NSX Advanced Load Balancer. This is a for the cloud distributed application delivery controller (ADC). It helps companies deal with the complexity and rigidness of legacy systems. Other features include: Software load balancer, intelligent web application firewall, the ability to dispatch services to any application on any cloud.

Then there’s the VeloCloud hyperscale SD-WAN through a highly automated, stateless, scale-out design that is akin to the architecture of public clouds like AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. There are thousands of global gateways across every major cloud provider and hundreds of underlay carrier networks. These gateways are stateless, and horizontally scalable, meaning that new gateways launch with no disruption to the end user. This comes with an automated one-click onramp to all the major public cloud providers.

New distributed analytics engine NSX Intelligence has been built natively into NSX-T. This along with vRealize Network Insight delivers comprehensive visibility, analytics and troubleshooting to improve network and security operations for the Virtual Cloud Network. It provides continuous data center-wide visibility for network and application security teams, helping them deliver a more granular and dynamic security posture, simplify compliance analysis, and streamline security operations. vRealize Network Insight’s latestversion gives end-to-end visibility and troubleshooting for physical and virtual infrastructure stretching from the data center to the network edge with new support for SD-WAN, and into AWS, and now Azure.

Earlier the company had also launched a portfolio of products and services called Tanzu. Their aim is to transform the way enterprises build, run and manage software on Kubernetes. Then there’s Project Pacific, which will enable IT operators and developers to accelerate innovation by running modern applications on VMware vSphere with native Kubernetes. This portfolio will help enterprises build modern applications for the latest software supply chains. VMWare is also acquiring Pivotal, which offers a comprehensive platform and deep connection to the developer community.

There was also something for the telco, Edge cloud and IoT range meant to drive real-time intelligence and improving automation and security. VMware has said that it is focusing on enabling the efficient deployment and monetization of their 4G and 5G network investments through an expanded set of use cases targeting enterprise customers.
