Much of the success of technological evolution goes through virtualization. A concept that, outside the technical world, is becoming more widespread. It hides a power that, up to now, we have only timidly begun to explore.
VMware unveils vCloud for NFV with integrated OpenStack
VMware debuted VMware vCloud for NFV, an integrated Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) platform that will combine VMware's production-proven virtualized compute, networking, storage and management solutions with integrated OpenStack support.
With support for more than 40 different virtual network functions (VNFs) from more than 30 vendors, VMware vCloud for NFV is the only platform available today that runs different VNFs from different vendors side by side on the same unified platform for the cloud.
With vCloud for NFV, communication service providers (CSPs) can deploy NFV solutions into production on a proven platform to achieve faster time to market for new and differentiated services while driving sustainable cost reductions.

In recent years, much has been written about the advantages of virtualization and the many benefits it brings to companies; especially, after the strong irruption of remote working driven by the pandemic.
On the surface, VDI may seem to solve the same issues as application virtualization technology. However, VDI isn’t a substitute for virtualized applications. In this article, we break down VDI and application virtualization. Keep reading to learn more and discover whether you should use both together or not.
Today is Data Privacy Day. The purpose of this date is to raise awareness and promote privacy and data protection best practices. It was initiated by the European Commission, the Council of Europe, and the Data Protection authorities of the European Union’s member states. Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.
Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.
However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.
Let’s get started.
After the Christmas holidays, we return to our blog posts, looking back and reviewing the most read news during the year that just ended. As you may know, the main topic we deal with is desktop virtualization (VDI), although we also echo articles on virtualization in general, cybersecurity or Open Source that may be interesting for our audience. The news about our UDS Enterprise VDI software, virtual applications and remote access take on special prominence, as well as the announcements related to our partner channel and our technological alliances.
