VMware Announces Intent to Acquire VeloCloud

Media Quotes

  • “The sun is rapidly setting on the era when corporate networks could be hardwired to serve static ‘branches.’ A sea change brought about by the rise of IoT and mobile devices means the edge, where these devices reside, is constantly in motion and constantly changing. Old school hardware solutions are not only more costly than bits and bytes, they’re not agile and don’t adapt quickly.” – Data Center Knowledge
  • “VMware has a very credible foothold in data center networking in its NSX product line, but the VeloCloud product would extend its capabilities towards the WAN, and provide a router alternative at the edge of the network. The lack of overlap is important, and the timing appears to be good as more enterprises look at virtualizing the network edge.” — Network World
  • “VMware is forward-thinking, and they’re out there disrupting. They don’t sit back and milk what they’ve been doing.” – CRN
  • “Compared to some of the other companies that could have acquired VeloCloud, this is by far the best option because of their NFV focus.”– CRN
  • “It’s completely brilliant. Of course they want to make an investment there. They have NSX, and you have to have the performance to go hand-in-hand with that, and that’s what SD-WAN is all about. When you see NSX working over SD WAN, they go hand-in-hand and it’s brilliant.” – CRN
  • “I think this is an exciting move for VMware. VeloCloud was very focused on the service provider side of the market. This gives VMware a cloud-to-cloud connectivity option through NSX integration that will help bolster their AWS conversation.” — Network Computing
  • “The deal will significantly strengthen VMware’s SDN portfolio with technology, intellectual property and customers, said Holger Mueller, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research Inc.” — SiliconANGLE 
  • Analysts who follow VMware say the acquisition puts the data center software company on a path toward becoming a full-fledged cloud-based networking vendor.” —Silicon Valley Business Journal 
  • “The company appears to be an excellent fit as one of the primary use cases is delivering virtualized services, VMware’s bread and butter, to branch offices, which may be spread out geographically, and to mobile users accessing those services from outside those offices.” – TechCrunch

NSX News You Can Use by Roger Fortier – March 6, 2017

In this week’s News You Can Use, we hear from Tom Corn in a podcast from BankInfoSecurity on using the cloud to prevent breaches. We also learn about an early adopter of NSX, Baystate Health, as well as some best practices for migrating new or existing applications onto VMware NSX.

  • BankInfoSecurity’s Matt Schwartz spoke with VMware’s Tom Corn at RSA 2017 on how the cloud can be used to improve security “by helping to separate data from applications, networks and other infrastructure.” In this podcast, Corn discusses how to better leverage the cloud for security, the benefits of using virtualization, and the need to design enterprise IT environments that are simpler and easier to secure.
  • TechTarget’s Allisa Irei reports on how network architect Mike Weisse has spent the past few years helping Baystate Health become an early adopter of hyper-converged infrastructure and VMware NSX. Weisse hopes the healthcare organization has a future as a small-scale SDN service provider, “using microsegmentation and multi-tenancy to securely run other organizations’ networks parallel to its own.”
  • Matt Brown of CRN reports on Dell EMC’s push to lead market transformation against Cisco in open, software-defined networking strategies. A top executive at a data center solutions provider who works with both Dell EMC and Cisco claimed, “Why do I want to buy all these really expensive [Cisco] switches when I can just layer in NSX? VMware virtualized server, storage and networking and it’s a problem for Cisco. I don’t think they have an answer for it.”

In this edition of News You Can Use, we look at coverage that highlights NSX-T’s importance to the future of the data center, with articles in CRN, TechTarget and Enterprise Networking Planet that discuss the promise of the NSX-T platform about the potential of the trailblazing new product.

  • CRN’s Mark Haranas included NSX-T in his latest new product slideshow, “10 Innovative New Networking Products That Are Turning Heads,” noting that new offering “has expanded” NSX by being compatible with non-vSphere environments.
  • In his latest, TechTarget’s Brian Kirsch looks at how outdated data centers should be modernized by adopting a hyper-converged infrastructure and software-defined networking like NSX, suggesting that “the portability and microsegmentation that VMware’s NSX brings is becoming an enabling technology that’s needed in a modern data center.”
  • In an article for Enterprise Networking Planet, reporter Sean Michael Kerner addresses how NSX provides a new way of looking at security, stating that through NSX-T “right now, VMware has the opportunity to fundamentally change how we think about computing.”

NSX News You Can Use by Roger Fortier – January 9, 2017

vmware-nsxHappy New Year everyone. Here’s the first NSX News You Can Use of 2017 from Roger Fortier.

  • In his round-up of the “10 Coolest Software-Defined Networking Technologies of 2016,” CRN’s Mark Haranas features NSX, referring to the technology as “popular” because of its hardware agnosticism and strong security use case through micro-segmentation.
  • TechTarget Contributor Brian Kirsch details the newly launched vExpert NSX program. He notes the program builds on the success of our vExpert loyalty program, and that the program could stimulate customer interest in VMware’s networking and security offering.
  • In an interview conducted last year with Fr. Robert Ballecer of TWiT’s This Week in Enterprise Tech program, Guido Appenzeller about how VMware “took the art of virtualization and turned it into something that is commonplace” through NSX.
