Dell Technologies advances software-defined networking solutions
Dell Technologies has announced new advancements in software-defined networking, so customers can simplify and help lower the cost of networking in today’s multi-cloud world.
“Dell EMC and VMware are rebuilding the network for the cloud era – with everything open, automated and software-defined,” said Tom Burns, senior vice president & general manager, Dell EMC Networking & Solutions.
“New SD-WAN solutions powered by VMware and network fabric management delivered by SmartFabric Director raise the stakes when it comes to network virtualization and security in today’s highly-distributed software-defined enterprise. We’re just getting started on our combined innovation.
Legacy wide area networks (WANs) struggle to keep up with the modern, multi-cloud traffic demands.
