Advanced Networking Capabilities
Advanced networking capabilities based on continuous, stable and reliable connectivity are now becoming the most wanted instrument to accelerate information and operational technology. However, advanced capabilities create higher network complexity in the form of use and integration of multiple networking protocols, increasing the numbers and variety of devices and device types, edge computing etc.
Digital transformation, enterprise agility, mobility and cloud technology features such as non-server computing are all dependent on advanced connectivity. Which is why it’s highly important that they match the strategic goals set in the enterprise digitalization plan while establishing and developing strategies for connectivity and cloud.
VyOS on Nutanix
The Nutanix solution is made up of two distinct pieces: Prism, and Acropolis. Prism is a tool to manage your data center that provides one-click infrastructure management, one-click operational insights and one-click planning. Acropolis is the operating system that includes the distributed storage fabric, the application mobility fabric and the Acropolis hypervisor called AHV.
Using VyOS together with a license-free Nutanix AHV, you can build your fully-functional and flexible enterprise-level network infrastructure both on-premises and on private and public clouds. Nutanix Prism provides a simple plane to manage the computing, storage and networking resources, and, coupled with VyOS CLI, ensures advanced networking capabilities, such as network management.
