Networking

WHAT IS NETWORKING?

Networking refers to the total process of creating and using computer networks, with respect to hardware, protocols and software, including wired and wireless technology.

In today’s marketplace every organisation has to enable their people to collaborate more effectively by providing instant and secure access to corporate networks, extend virtualisation, and leverage cloud computing – this is where networking plays its part.

Today your enterprise networks need to be intelligent and IT departments need to integrate that intelligence into their network infrastructure to gain a technological and competitive lead within their sector.

THE BENEFITS OF NETWORKING

Businesses that possess legacy network architectures rooted in hardware can’t match the speed, agility, or security of those running virtualised networking. The state of the business is being held hostage by the state of the network.  A fundamentally new approach to the network infrastructure is needed—one that no longer demands compromises between speed and security or between security and agility. The rules of the Datacentre that have held businesses back from unleashing their full potential need to be rewritten to enable IT to perform without compromises. The abstraction of functionality from hardware into software enables businesses to quickly provision applications, move virtual systems across and between Datacentre’s, and automate a number of processes.

With the number of devices, applications, and bandwidth demands growing, while the size of IT staff and budgets remains static, many organisations are struggling to manage the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend and cope with the huge growth in mobile devices and network traffic. Networking promises to deliver:

Improve data back-up and recovery
Leverage next-generation technologies
Increase network security
Support access to increasing number and types of devices
Enable higher amounts of data transfer

HOW ASYSTEC CAN HELP

By moving network and security services into the Datacentre virtualisation layer, network virtualisation enables you to create, snapshot, store, move, delete, and restore entire application environments with the same simplicity and speed that they now have when spinning up virtual machines. This, in turn, enables levels of security and efficiency that were previously infeasible.

Asystec partner with VMware, Dell EMC and Cisco to offer you a range of networking platform that can transform your deliver business network. Our experts utilise our multi-vendor approach to offer you a networking solution that best fits your business.

VMWARE NSX

Asystec partner with VMware bringing NSX to the market. VMware NSX is the network virtualisation platform for the software-defined Datacentre.

By bringing the operational model of a virtual machine to you Datacentre network, you can transform the economics of network and security operations.

NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VM’s with a policy driven approach.

Proven Networking for the SDDC – NSX delivers for networking the capabilities VMware already provides for compute storage. Create, save, delete and restore virtual networks on demand, without reconfiguring your physical network.
Platform for advanced networking and security services – NSX provides a platform for bringing the industry’s leading networking and security solutions into the SDDC. By taking advantage of tight integration with the NSX platform, third party products can not only deploy automatically as needed, but also adapt dynamically to changing conditions in the Datacentre.
Security and Micro-Segmentation – NSX brings security inside the Datacentre with automated fine-grained policies tied to the virtual machines, while its network virtualisation capabilities let you create entire networks in software.
Agility and streamlined operations – NSX reduces the time to provision multi-tier networking and security services from weeks to seconds, abstracting virtual networks from the underlying physical network.

CISCO EDGE

Cisco Edge Series devices provide a cloud-accessible, all-in-one open computing platform to help enable connected room deployments. These devices also offer integrated, wired and wireless access, HDMI and audio, USB, Bluetooth, and computing for all-in-one connectivity. They also provide an open Linux environment for partners and service providers to develop and host vertical applications.

Lower TCO with purpose-built appliance design with long-lifecycle embedded chipset, compact fan-less design, and low power consumption.
Meet the transformational challenge of enabling and deploying cloud applications easily and quickly through its open architecture. The Cisco Edge is a Linuxbased open platform with powerful local computing and multimedia capabilities and manageability that facilitate customers and partners to enable and deploy new vertical applications.
