Oracle Virtual Networking Reduces Infrastructure Complexity by 70 Percent
As they embrace the cloud and support greater numbers of mobile devices, a growing number of enterprises are consolidating their data centers and running more workloads on virtual machines. To support these efforts, it’s crucial for these organizations to simplify their networking environments. Oracle Virtual Networking virtualizes local area network (LAN) and storage area network (SAN) infrastructures to give enterprises greater flexibility and agility for their cloud deployments.
Oracle Virtual Networking offers the industry’s fastest data center fabric with up to 80 GB/second bandwidth to the server. New enhancements add support for Oracle’s SPARC M5 and T series servers, and Oracle Solaris 11 on both SPARC and x86 platforms.
Oracle Virtual Networking can help customers
“Oracle’s Pillar Axiom solutions combined with Oracle Virtual Networking is a superior cloud computing platform,” says Kelly Beardmore, chief executive officer at Carbon60 Networks. “It can handle diverse and demanding application workloads very reliably, scale seamlessly, and reduce management and maintenance costs.”
- Improve application performance by a factor of four
- Reduce infrastructure complexity by 70 percent
- Cut LAN and SAN capital expenditures by 50 percent
- Make virtual machine migrations 19 times faster
- Provision new services and reconfigure resources in minutes, not days
Oracle Virtual Networking virtualizes the data center infrastructure using the private virtual interconnect capabilities within Oracle SDN (Software Defined Networking). This enables connections from any virtual machine (VM) or server to other VMs, servers, network resources, and storage devices. As a result IT organizations can quickly deploy or reconfigure services in a data center infrastructure. Because Oracle Virtual Networking is an open solution, it plugs into existing server, LAN, and SAN infrastructures to protect IT investments. The open architecture supports a broad range of operating systems, such as Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, Microsoft Windows, and leading hypervisors such as Oracle VM, VMware, and Microsoft Hyper-V. The solution also provides predictable performance for mission-critical applications thanks to its quality-of-service controls for network and storage access.
The security capabilities in Oracle Virtual Networking protect multitenant cloud environments by allowing IT managers to create isolated virtual private data centers instead of relying on virtual LANs.
