Fixed hardware configurations for efficient cloud operations

Having a uniform hardware infrastructure is a must for efficient cloud operations. Fixed configurations support the transition to an optimized whole from current sub-optimizations.

No More Excuses: Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor takes you to the cloud.

An enterprise committing to virtualization and cloud is a lot like a person committing to serious physical exercise. In both cases, it’s a question of eliminating excuses.

Transform how you manage your datacenter workloads

Most operators are concerned with optimizing their IT infrastructure for a high level of efficiency. Perhaps the most common problem scenario is the wasting of resources by over-provisioning. During peak hours, one workload may use less than half of the available compute, network, and storage. What does that mean for utilization during normal traffic hours?

For operators striving for a higher level of efficiency, a key tool is the virtual Performance-Optimized Datacenter (vPOD).

OPNFV Summit is sailing off to Berlin

This is a key event for the open source NFV ecosystem and for NFV industrialization. How is OPNFV related to those rivers and what does Ericsson intend to do at this show?

OPNFV—completing the NFV jigsaw puzzle

The promise of NFV has been on the agenda for a long time. After several years of POCs and trials operators are launching services on virtualized networks. Open source is the way to go, but how?
