Dell EMC NFV Ready Bundle for VMware è una soluzione integrata hardware e software che include l’infrastruttura hardware di Dell EMC cloud, supportata da Intel Xeon, e la piattaforma VMware vCloud NFV con VMware vSAN o Dell EMC ScaleIO. La soluzione è pensata per facilitare i deployment NFV dei service provider, in una fase in cui la trasformazione digitale accelera e il 5G è sempre più vicino.
I clienti avranno l’opzione di ottenere il deployment dell’offerta integrata tramite VMware Integrated OpenStack-Carrier Edition o VMware vCloud Director quale manager dell’infrastruttura virtuale.
VMware vCloud NFV è una piattaforma NFV modulare e multi-tenant ETSI-compliant che supporta le diverse scelte in ambito di infrastruttura virtuale. La piattaforma vCloud NFV unisce un’infrastruttura NFV a elevata disponibilità, carrier-grade, con le funzionalità di gestione delle operazioni e di assicurazione dei servizi di tipo day 2.

Service providers around the globe believe NFV will deliver benefits in automation, service agility for new revenues, operational efficiency, and capex savings. Many carriers are now moving from NFV proof-of-concepts and lab evaluations into field trials and commercial deployments. This trend will only accelerate with new NFV offerings such as the one introduced by Dell EMC and VMware. Operators will want to examine the new pre-validated Dell EMC and VMware integrated bundle, since it can help reduce deployment and operational concerns as well as the risk for NFV, which will help accelerate new service delivery and shorten time to revenue.
