VMware: The Evolution of Infrastructure Is Driving Digital Transformation
It’s an exciting time to be in infrastructure. At least that’s the view of Pere Monclus, vice president and CTO for the Networking and Security Business Unit at VMware.
His focus is the future of networking, which, he says, is part of the wave of business innovation rippling across the enterprise. Companies are using nascent technologies to reach new customers, automate processes, and put more productive tools into the hands of their employees. This business innovation is both supported by and enabled through a much less visible transformation happening across IT infrastructure.

Previous iterations of enterprise networking were based on hardware appliances—switches, routers, firewalls—and these devices had to be manually placed in a location, configured, and connected. Even the thought of the network being misconfigured or failing would make IT teams extremely conservative, as the fallout could affect all applications in a data center. Today, with the fast adoption of network virtualization, networking is becoming cool again. It is no longer slowing the deployment of applications, but rather dynamically providing what applications need: connectivity, security, and scale in a fully automated way.
