Nicira Session October 11, 2012

Posted by vbry21 in VMware blogs, VMworld 2012 Barcelona.

I’ve just sat in on a very interesting session on Virtual Networking.

VMware bought the Nicira company about three months ago.

For me the boundary of the true software datacenters has always been the network. Networks tend to be static. We rely on the network bods to plumb in first, we then attach to the network, if something needs moved, we then ring up networking and they then repatch.

With Nicira, we can then pool and provision VMs quickly.

I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of this technology.

By the way, this technology also works with other Hypervisors.

Visit the Nicira / Vmware website, it makes for interesting reading.
