Considerations When Deploying an NFV Network Solution

Virtualization is now being applied to an increasing range of networking hardware. The functionality of purpose-built network hardware like routers, switches and firewalls is being replaced by network functions virtualization (NFV) architectures that run on commodity servers.

Achieving Multicloud Private Connectivity to Cloud Providers

Two of the most powerful technology advancements in the past decade are mobile and cloud computing. Mobile puts more processing and communications capability in your hand than many organizations had in their entire data centers twenty years ago. The cloud efficiently and economically places services, applications and data in widely-distributed—and often remote—locations to meet the needs of market expansion, data sovereignty, new services delivery and optimized processing. Together, mobile and cloud have enabled more of the world to reap the benefits of an increasingly digital economy. 

How SDN and NFV Technologies Are Transforming Network Management

Communications, network and cloud service providers have assumed much of this responsibility and make it easy for enterprises to take advantage of the latest network capabilities. Providers like Equinix play a major role in enabling enterprises to connect globally and manage network resources and interconnection far more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before.

Reduce CapEx While Maximizing Performance with NFV

Cloud technologies have transformed not only the provisioning and delivery of computing services, but also IT business and financial models. Enterprises have delegated management of an ever-increasing amount of their IT infrastructure to cloud service providers, due to the realization of significant capital expenditure (CapEx) savings through the economies of scale delivered by the cloud.

Why Network Functions Virtualization Should be Part of Your Infrastructure Strategy

Networking has played a critical role in digital transformation, evolving from now-primitive centralized connections to today’s distributed software-defined networks (SDN). Software-defined networking, an approach to cloud computing, simplifies network management and configuration through programming to improve network performance and monitoring.
