TBD Networks Extends Proven Network Virtualization Solution to Physical and Virtual Firewalls
TBDVirtualFabric fills the gap between VMware and Cisco in virtual datacenters.
TBDVirtualFabric-VMware Edition (VME) provides the missing pieces for companies to realize the full benefits of Datacenter Virtualization by unifying physical and virtual firewalls and network infrastructure. Based on the industry’s only proven Network Virtualization solution scaleable to over 30,000 Virtual Network endpoints, TBDVirtualFabric-VME was specifically designed to provide a virtual fabric of networking, security, and firewall capabilities to scale VMware environments beyond current limitations.
Server and storage virtualization have yielded tremendous benefits by reducing operational costs and hardware expenditure while significantly increasing business agility. However, virtualization projects directly result in the addition of virtual network devices that increase network complexity without giving datacenter managers the same flexible management options that server and storage virtualization provides.
"Companies that have chosen not to implement Network Virtualization in their Virtual Datacenter are only realizing part of the benefits," noted Dr. Anurag Juneja, Vice President Solutions at eGain. "Server and storage virtualization has cut provisioning times from days or weeks to minutes, but manually provisioning correct VLAN and security configurations still takes days or weeks, delaying roll-outs and exposing servers to a new class of security risks. Network Virtualization closes this gap and completes the Virtual Datacenter."
"TBDVirtualFabric-VME naturally extends the benefits that VMware and VMotion create in current virtual environments," commented Thomas Ludwig, CEO of TBD Networks. "It delivers benefits of full Datacenter Virtualization within minutes of installation. TBDVirtualFabric-VME automatically discovers the entire physical and virtual network (including firewalls, switches and VLANs), and gives administrators an intuitive GUI to define network topologies, high-availability and security policies. The result is a virtualized environment that complies with enterprise standards and scales to large deployments without giving up on the flexibility of datacenter-wide VMotion."
TBDVirtualFabric-VME helps companies maximize their return on investment from Datacenter Virtualization efforts. It reduces networking bottlenecks, especially in multi vendor networks (supporting leading vendors such as Cisco, Foundry and Juniper), without compromising security by reducing hardware requirements, and improving the utilization of existing hardware and network links. TBDVirtualFabric-VME permits companies to provision, manage, and reconfigure networks at the speed of business. In addition to improved network performance, availability, and QoS, it can simultaneously help companies reduce security risks and network threats.
About TBD Networks:
TBD Networks helps companies be more agile, more competitive and more virtual by extending virtualization to the network. and creating benefits such as (1) simplifying networking and security across physical and virtual boundaries, (2) consolidating management through one visual policy interface, and (3) instantly supporting dynamic security zones, VMotion and VLANs across VMware ESX, physical and virtual firewalls, switches and iSCSI devices.
TBD Networks has built the leading network virtualization solution that operates some of the largest virtual networks in the world. TBDVirtualFabric-VME is currently the only network virtualization solution that supports and manages over 30,000 virtual network end points. With a long history of having the most stringent security, performance, availability, reconfiguration frequency, and QoS requirements of any global network, TBDVirtualFabric-VME has truly been battle-tested as part of the Air Force next-generation network operations.
TBD Networks is proud to partner with virtualization and network leaders such as Cisco and VMware. TBD Networks is also an active member of VMware’s VMsafe program that develops the next generation of virtualization security technologies.
