VMware Network Virtualization Speeds Service Delivery at NaviSite 
NaviSite Virtualizes Physical Data Center Network to Help Simplify
Operations and Transform Cloud Infrastructure Delivery 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 --  VMware, Inc. (NYSE:
VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure,
today announced that NaviSite, a Time Warner Cable Company, and a
leading provider of enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed
applications and services, is taking the next step on the journey to
the software-defined data center by deploying VMware's network
virtualization solutions. By decoupling the network from underlying
hardware, network virtualization transforms the operational model of
networking enabling NaviSite to respond to opportunities more rapidly
while dramatically lowering operational and capital expenses.  
"NaviSite delivers state-of-the-art cloud services to very demanding
customers expecting superior service and support," said David Grimes,
CTO of NaviSite. "VMware network virtualization enables NaviSite to
break free from the physical constraints of traditional networking to
deliver services to these customers in minutes versus days."  
NaviSite virtualized its existing network converting the physical
data center infrastructure into a pool of network and compute
capacity that is now consumed and repurposed on demand. Existing
customer applications and systems run unchanged, and hosting
customers can now migrate application workloads more easily to
NaviSite's cloud. 
"Leading edge companies are focused on improving the pace of how they
operate and serve their customers while lowering costs," said Hatem
Naguib, vice president of Cloud Networking and Security at VMware.
"NaviSite's adoption of network and compute virtualization puts it on
a path to a software-defined data center architecture where all
physical infrastructure resources are virtualized and delivered as a
service to achieve agility and operational efficiency." 
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 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.
