iland Virtualizes Datacenter Network Extending the Operational
Benefits of Server Virtualization to the Network 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 --  VMware, Inc. (NYSE:
VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure,
today announced another example of the adoption of network
virtualization in the market. iland, a global cloud infrastructure
provider and the VMware Service Provider Partner of the Year Global
2012, has taken advantage of VMware network virtualization to reduce
operational costs and increase service velocity. 
"As we explored building and delivering new, value-added cloud
services, we realized the tremendous flexibility, operational
efficiency and time-to-market benefits to be gained through network
virtualization," said Justin Giardina, CTO of iland Internet
Solutions. "Just as server virtualization changed the way we
delivered compute resources, network virtualization has transformed
the way we deliver network services by removing the challenges we
faced when bound to the physical network."  
Network virtualization addresses one of the final barriers to
achieving the agility of cloud computing -- the network -- by
enabling the dynamic creation of virtual networks that are completely
decoupled and independent from the physical network hardware. Much
like server virtualization decouples virtual machines (VMs) from the
underlying x86 server hardware to transform the operational model of
compute, network virtualization decouples software-based virtual
networks from the underlying network hardware to enable a new
operational model for networking. Deployed non-disruptively on any
existing network without change, network virtualization transforms
the physical network into a pool of capacity that can be consumed and
repurposed on demand. 
"iland is at the forefront of our customers' transformation to
software-defined datacenters," said Hatem Naguib, vice president,
Cloud Networking and Security, VMware. "iland demonstrates that
clouds built to leverage the operational model of virtualization
across all datacenter assets -- compute, storage and network -- can
deliver agility and operational efficiency not previously possible." 
VMware network virtualization solutions include the VMware vCloud(R)
Suite, which incorporates VMware's leading virtualization, cloud
infrastructure and management portfolio into a single SKU, and the
Nicira Network Virtualization Platform (NVP) which delivers network
virtualization in multi-hypervisor environments. Both are key
components of VMware's software-defined datacenter architecture which
enables pooling of industry-standard hardware through virtualization
to help organizations achieve the agility, efficiency and intelligent
operations management of cloud computing.
