Network Virtualization Helps Healthcare-Focused Cloud Service Provider Accelerate Customer Rollouts
PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2013) - VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, today announced Logicworks, a cloud computing and managed hosting provider based in New York, is using VMware network virtualization to accelerate business velocity. VMware network virtualization simplifies customer onboarding for Logicworks, enabling the cloud service provider to bring on more customers in less time while lowering both operational and capital expenses.
"Our clients' businesses are driven by the availability and functionality of their applications. We are using cutting-edge network virtualization technology from VMware to improve service agility, efficiency and scale," said Kenneth Ziegler, CEO, Logicworks. "Network virtualization is providing us with a new operational model which reduces our provisioning times and enables our customers to come to market with new applications and services more quickly. In the future, it will also enable frictionless workload migration, automated network provisioning and ultimately, network self-service for our clients."
Logicworks specializes in private, public and hybrid cloud solutions for a broad array of industries, including a cloud offering focused specifically on the emerging healthcare market. In healthcare, each application requires a different and unique infrastructure. VMware network virtualization enables Logicworks to be flexible in meeting app-specific infrastructure requirements in a fraction of the time it would take to deploy applications using traditional, physical infrastructure. VMware network virtualization enables Logicworks to dynamically create virtual networks that are completely decoupled and independent from the physical network hardware. This provides Logicworks with operational simplicity to support new and existing applications in a non-disruptive way, without modification to the underlying network hardware.
"In the cloud era, speed is the new currency. It drives customer adoption and increased revenues for fast-moving businesses such as Logicworks," said Hatem Naguib, vice president, Cloud Networking and Security, VMware. "Network virtualization, powered by a new generation of software and networking silicon, will lead the transformation of the underlying network architecture that helps customers keep pace with the speed of business."
