VMware: The Network of the Future in a Virtualized World

The future of networking is coming, and it will be infrastructure-independent. The broad outlines of this new world can already be seen in the design of new “serverless computing” service offerings such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda.

AWS Lambda (unlike traditional IaaS) doesn’t require any computing infrastructure to be explicitly provisioned by the user. With infrastructure-independent networking, provisioning of network hardware will also become a thing of the past. The network of the future will be modules of software that are invoked according to application needs. It will demand a shift in mindset: from thinking about configuring devices to deploying software that delivers the necessary networking capabilities. And according to Bruce Davie, VMware’s VP and CTO, APJ, a primary enabler of these transformational changes is network virtualization.

A Fork in the Road

“IT today is at a fork in the road,” Davie says. If it continues in one direction, the lines of business (LOBs) will go around IT and render it irrelevant. Davie calls that “the dystopian view of IT.” If it takes the other fork, he says, “IT will become an enabler of the business, and provide the things the business needs: security, efficiency, and the networking services that applications need.”
