VMware

In the last decade, VMware transformed the compute environment with virtualization, which later extended beyond servers to include storage, application and now network virtualization. VMware allowed disaggregation of server hardware and software that radically improved provisioning speed and economics.

With Cumulus Linux and disaggregation of software from the network hardware (a.k.a Open Networking), speed and economy of the data center network and applications running on ...
