Enhancements to several desktop virtualisation and cloud infrastructure offerings
VMware and Cisco have unveiled new technology innovation and enhancements to their combined virtualisation offerings that help customers move to the cloud.
The companies also announced enhancements to several desktop virtualisation and cloud infrastructure offerings.
Cisco said Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) can be created on-demand, enabling enterprises to utilise computing and storage capacity for mission critical applications.
VXLAN will also support applications running in hybrid clouds where compute capacity is delivered from various resources that span across private and public clouds, and will offer a network encapsulation technique with segment identifiers for creating millions of logical networks and for enabling workloads to move across datacenters and cloud infrastructures.
These networking segments will support cloud infrastructures that support multi-tenants that require segmentation for enhanced security and compliance.
VMware View with Cisco Unified Communications provide a collaborative workspace that will include call control and increased scalability with VMware vSphere 5, VMware View 5, Cisco Unified Communications (UC) and Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), the company noted.
VMware View 5 will be available on Cisco Cius and Cisco Virtualization Experience Clients (VXC) 2100and 2200 endpoints to provide workers with real-time access to business applications and content.
Cisco and VMware combined offerings have been enhanced with the latest VMware vSphere 5 and Cisco UCS 2.0 applications, to offer better cloud management capabilities to virtualise the business-critical applications and workloads, Cisco said.
The VXLAN technology will also be supported in VMware vSphere 5, VMware vCloud Director 1.5 and Cisco Nexus 1000V virtual switch to deliver an on-demand cloud infrastructure to enhance the end-user experience.
Cisco Nexus 1000V and VMware vCloud Director 1.5 will offer auto-deploy capabilities to allow installation and deliver VXLAN-based network isolation that enables troubleshooting and management of applications running in the cloud.
