The Virtualization Practice

Network Virtualization

Network virtualization focuses on how vendors apply the principles of sharing, pooling, abstraction, and configuration to the creation and management of networking resources in the enterprise and cloud. It also examines how moving networking configuration and maintenance affects users who rely on virtualized networking services to support environments and applications.

VMware and Arista Networks have a longstanding partnership that has been very beneficial to both partners. Begun in 2010 to allow closer integration between VMware’s vCloud Director and Arista’s Extensible Operating System, this partnership was further expanded in 2012 with the companies’ collaboration on the VXLAN specification and interoperability across the physical/virtual network boundaries.
