Cloud solutions are fundamentally changing the way companies compete and operate.
Cloud services range from data centers, databases and storage services to various types of complex Enterprise Applications made available on IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service),
PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) models.
The advanced HAYYDEN Cloud Network Virtualization (NV) solutions are equipped with an Innovative Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies and dynamic-provisioned Environments capable of supporting various data processing models and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
As an Innovative ICT Networking company, HAYYDEN offers a wide range of Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies; a broad portfolio of SDN products is covered in more detail in a separate, exclusively dedicated Service Catalogue section called Software Defined Networking (SDN) Adoption & Provisioning.
Get the most from your Network with HAYYDEN Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). The main idea behind NFV is to decouple the Network Functions from Hardware so they can run in Software. HAYYDEN’s market-leading NFV-enabled Cloud-based services offer a broad spectrum of benefits resulting in cost-effective ICT standard that is capable of managing Network Infrastructure through highly dynamic and automated approach – NFV defines a new architectural model for operating, designing, implementing and supporting ICT Network & Cybersecurity Services.
NFV virtualizes Layer 4-7 & decouples Network Functions, such as Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS), Content Delivery Networks, Domain Name Service (DNS), caching, load balancing (Application Delivery Controllers), and Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) as well as other processes from running on proprietary physical hardware into software-based environment.
More specifically, instead of spending money on a bespoke physical hardware components for each Network Function, NFV utilizes standard IT virtualization technologies that run on top of industry-standard high-volume servers, switches, storage hardware, or even Cloud computing infrastructure to virtualize Network Functions.
NFV aims to deliver the Networking components required to support a fully virtualized infrastructure – It applies to storage, virtual servers and even other autonomous networks & systems.
The advanced ICT Network Virtualization and NFV greatly contribute to cost savings – OPEX and CAPEX are reduced significantly along with maximizing the ROI benefits, all contributing to dramatic TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) savings coupled with incomparable operational and Business agility.
Once implemented, NFV saves a lot of time on manual provisioning and hardware purchasing. Most importantly, NFV enables pay-as-you-grow models to eliminate over provisioning: rather than buying monster firewalls or big load balancers that can handle the entire network, the Client can just buy functions to cover certain types of Network functionalities & Infra requirements. This eliminates the need to purchase physical Infra components – The Capital Expenditures (CAPEX) are considerably reduced as there is no longer a need to continue buying purpose-built Networking hardware that must be constantly expanded to accommodate the ever-growing Business demands. Moreover, reductions in power consumption, cooling, hardware & cabling overhead, electricity costs, and Data Center space (including rack & floor rental space) accumulate to lower total facilities costs leading to a dramatically reduced Operating Expenses (OPEX).
The main disadvantage of the traditional hardware approach is related to the huge negative budget impact as having monster firewalls or some other massive equipment sitting in the middle of the infrastructure is extremely expensive because such traditional IT hardware must always be sized for peak capacity, resulting in a situation where hardware resources are constantly underutilized!
NFV aims to address the problem of costly hardware by offering the flexibility to dynamically scale resources allocation up & down based on service requirements to satisfy changing traffic demands.
Meeting the ever-expanding Business needs with additional hardware components is extremely expensive and time consuming.
Instead of damaging your company’s budget by investing in additional ICT hardware & equipment, your company should migrate from the legacy IT architecture towards the Virtualized and Self-Programmable networks based on NFV and SDN solutions that significantly reduce CAPEX, OPEX, and generate considerably higher Return On Investment (ROI)!
Together, NFV and SDN enable the Programmable networks, providing fully Automated IT environment and introducing a new level of IT flexibility.
SDN and NFV delivered by HAYYDEN will bring a dramatic wave of Innovation across your entire organization, allowing more efficient allocation of different ICT resources (bandwidth, hardware, circuits, servers, storage, etc.), as well as leading to better Business agility and significantly contributing to the overall IT cost reduction!
In addition, the Programmable Network Cloud built on the concepts of both NFV & SDN, will bring even wider range of possible benefits to your company !
With the right Cloud strategy in place, companies will gain competitive advantage over the competition and will manage to achieve far more profits when looking from the revenue growth perspective.
