White Paper: Making the Software-Defined Data Center a Reality with VMware NSX

By Jason Bloomberg and Charles Araujo

The twin disruptive forces of cloud computing and digital transformation are disrupting the cloud provider marketplace. Unrelenting demand from mid-market and enterprise customers alike for faster, more adaptable services that will help them deal with the pressures of digital disruption are now table stakes for any cloud provider to remain competitive in today’s turbulent business environment.

Within these increasingly state-of-the-art facilities, cloud providers are able to deploy virtual machines and software-defined storage in minutes and automate operational processes while offering high degrees of workload mobility.
