Application Brief: Network Edge Consolidation
Single-purpose devices – such as routers, firewalls, VPNs, and WAN optimization, among many others – greatly add to the cost and complexity of your network edge. In the past, many networking vendors believed that you had to network with hardware appliances. But since the onslaught of datacenter virtualization and cloud computing, those same vendors are releasing software-only networking products for virtual environments.
In this resource, learn how you can significantly reduce edge network device sprawl by using network virtual machines instead of single-purpose devices. Uncover the benefits of network edge consolidation, and read details about a solution that can help you.
