Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak.
By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far simpler to manage security through defining and delegating application and services to specific users.

Cloud datacenter security is becoming imperative in the new age of malware attacks. To stay competitive and secure, organizations are turning to smart networking in an effort to close the datacenter security gap. The combination of VMware NSX, AirWatch Tunnel and Horizon View helps close this gap and simplifies security management for IT professionals. With the upcoming prevalence of authentication and identity management in an organization’s infrastructure, the need to delegate and define network access continues to highlight the important role of hybrid cloud security that addresses all end-user devices.

A sound IT infrastructure is fundamental to today’s businesses and when that infrastructure fails the consequences can be far reaching. Whether it is business-to-business, business-to-consumer or public sector organizations serving citizens, applications and the services they drive increasingly need to be available all day, every day. Many organizations find it hard to achieve such service levels. This briefing looks at some possible solutions.
The role of the CIO has changed more in the past five years than any other position in the business world. IT success used to be measured on IT metrics such as uptime and performance of the infrastructure. Today, the goals of the IT leader are aligned with the goals of the business, causing IT to be redefined on all levels.
Vendors Have White-Box Switch Hardware As Part Of Their Portfolio
White boxes are another name for switches built from off-the-shelf components. All the traditional vendors have been offering white-box switches for a long time, and customers can reduce their raw costs by incorporating those switches.
Modern data centers run a combination of cloud-native applications and
microservices architectures alongside traditional applications. Networking teams
are under pressure to deliver services and resolve application issues quickly
while lowering costs for application services. Your IT operations demand agile,
cost-effective load balancing solutions.
Virtualization is helping organizations like yours utilize data center hardware infrastructure more effectively, leading to a reduction in costs and improvements in operational efficiencies. In many cases, virtualization initiatives begin internally, with your own hardware and networking infrastructure augmented by tools like VMware® or Linux® KVM and OpenStack® to help manage your virtualized environment. Often referred to as private cloud, these projects are fueling significant expansion into what can be referred to as the public cloud.
In today’s technology-driven world, a financial services organization’s ability to evolve the business quickly depends on the network. MetaFabric architecture, which is the foundation of Juniper’s unique end-to-end data center networking solution, helps financial services firms respond confidently to whatever happens in the market.
With an open, simple, and smart network in place, organizations can adapt quickly and seamlessly to changing requirements while eliminating the disruptions of forced upgrades and unnecessary purchases that come with vendor lock-in. Most importantly, the MetaFabric architecture helps companies stay at the forefront of innovation, keeping them one step ahead of the competition.
This document is targeted at networking and virtualization architects interested in deploying VMware NSX network virtualization in a multi-hypervisor environment based on the integrated solution from VMware and Juniper.
VMware’s Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) vision leverages core data center virtualization technologies to transform data center economics and business agility through automation and non disruptive deployment that embraces and extends existing compute, network and storage infrastructure investments. NSX is the component providing the networking virtualization pillar of this vision. As a platform, NSX provides partners the capability of integrating their solution and build on the top of the existing functionalities. NSX enables an agile overlay infrastructure for public and private cloud environments leveraging Juniper’s robust and resilient underlay infrastructure that also helps bridge the physical and virtual worlds using the L2 gateway functionality.
