This white paper from Intel and VMware introduces key NFV infrastructure (NFVI) performance concepts and issues, giving CSPs the tools they need to better understand and manage overall performance as they deploy NFV in their networks.
The network functions virtualization (NFV) revolution – where software-based services running in virtualized environments on Intel® architecture servers replace purpose built appliances – has taken communications service providers by storm.
Download this white paper to see why securing the data center requires a solution that can:
-Provide visibility and control over custom data center applications
-Handle asymmetric traffic flows and application transactions between devices and data centers
-Adapt as data centers evolve: to virtualization, software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), Cisco -Application-Centric Infrastructures (ACIs) and beyond
-Address the entire attack continuum: before, during, and after an attack
-Integrate with security deployed across the entire network
-Support geograpically dispersed inter-DC traffic and deployments, including private, public and cloud environments
