Ericsson Solution Architect Virtualization VMW Area in Madrid, Spain

Today operators & enterprise customers are looking into how they can reduce their costs associated to their IT infrastructure as well as how to decouple their network functions and applications from physical dependencies on bare metal monolithic architectures and OS’s. They are also looking at how to utilize their resources optimally. They are in a unique position to use future proof scalable, on-demand, automated, private, public and hybrid cloud solutions to secure service quality and security management. The main needs are as follows: minimize up-front investments, minimize operational (recurrent) costs – adopting cloud technologies while keeping outsourcing, energy, and data center expenses at bay, maximize resource utilization, identify underutilized resources, create compelling service offerings introducing new services that fully exploit the elasticity of cloud resources, become more agile without compromising service quality, differentiate from over-the-top competitors where the network should play to dramatically improve the customer experience, and guarantee security.

Ericsson hypervisor virtualization in infrastructure environment for cloud- compute, networking and storage comprises own Ericsson solutions but also 3pp’s like VMWare, Mirantis, KVM, etc,.. that continues to deliver a cloud platform for wider implementations of Network Functions Virtualization and Telco cloud but also establish a position in IT cloud. Virtualization / Hypervisors solutions continues to embrace Open source platforms such as OpenStack, Linux KVM and Open vSwitch and runs on both Ericsson and third party x86 hardware, but also on market standard “de-facto” architectures and platforms like VCAN suites, adding enterprise and carrier grade enhancements to build a differentiated offering to run all workloads including Telco and IT.

The key value proposition of virtualized environment is Performance (improved throughput and latency), Flexible deployment of cloud infra (virtualized controllers and deployment tools) and Rapid deployment of applications (Orchestrated on-demand and template reuse) and end-2-end Security (Secure TLS communication) which are not available from Open source platforms.
