VMware vCloud NFV OpenStack is a production proven carrier-grade OpenStack solution that provides the fastest path for communications service providers (CSPs) to deploy services on OpenStack. Many of the world’s leading CSPs rely on vCloud NFV OpenStack to develop modern cloud computing stacks, transform their networks, operations, and business models to support new revenue streams, lower operating costs, and evolve to 5G.
With advanced resource placement, fast and hitless installs and upgrades, high availability, security with micro-segmentation, and intelligent operations with carrier-grade vRealize Operations, vCloud NFV OpenStack is not only easy to deploy and operate alongside your current infrastructure but also ready for what’s next.
Core capabilities and benefits
A key aspect of transforming carrier-grade networks to meet current and 5G-ready use cases across core and edge is to architect the network for optimum application response times, scale, service continuity, and SLAs. vCloud NFV delivers a carrier-grade NFVI platform with continuous availability, service continuity, breakthrough network performance, and simplified management, enabling operators to achieve significant improvements in data plane performance, resource scaling, and service availability.
CSPs are increasingly seeking networking and security platforms that provide consistent connectivity, QoS, integrated security, and inherent automation to operate a robust end-to-end architecture that delivers applications and services, when and where needed.
CSPs are often constrained by traditional operating models which may have worked for a specific pre-defined set of services but were rigid and inflexible. Deploying new services on-demand, with real-time scaling, monitoring, and remediation has now become imperative.
