VMWare, the cloud computing and virtualisation company, is broadening the scope of its enterprise partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to address hybrid cloud and edge use cases.
Together, they are working to enable service providers to streamline operations and automation, optimise network traffic, and provide superior end-user experiences.
One such use case involves reducing latency at the edge through AWS Wavelength with VMWare SD-WAN.
By embedding AWS infrastructure and services within providers’ networks, Wavelength removes the requirement to send vast amounts of data over unnecessary hops to a centralised location for processing.
This allows for millisecond-level connections between mobile devices and application servers that supports experiences such as autonomous driving, drone-to-door delivery, and mixed reality shopping.
VMware SD-WAN generates efficient and secure tunnels that directly link edge devices within an enterprise network to virtual edge appliances.
When embedded within nearby Wavelength nodes this can help IT organisations to leverage customisable business policies, prioritising latency-sensitive apps to support the fastest speeds over 5G, satellite, broadband, and private lines.
When it comes to cloud adoption, service providers are increasingly embracing public clouds as a part of their network architecture. As network functions deploy across on-premises telco clouds and public clouds, service providers need a platform that allows for consistent hybrid operations and automation.
The VMware Telco Cloud Platform offers service providers greater choice on how they want to run their workloads in a hybrid environment. VMware Telco Cloud Platform also provides service providers with the ability to migrate telco and IT workloads to public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), specifically VMware Cloud on AWS.
VMWare also recently rolled out VMWare Workspace ONE, an intelligence-driven platform capable of access control, application management, and multi-platform endpoint management that is available as a cloud service or on-premises deployment.
