Logicworks Improves Speed with VMware Network Virtualization

By Ed Silverstein May 16, 2013

Logicworks, a provider of cloud computing and managed hosting, has selected VMware network virtualization – and is improving its all-important speed.

The VMware offering lets Logicworks take on added customers quicker, and with lower costs, the companies said.

“We are using cutting-edge network virtualization technology from VMware to improve service agility, efficiency and scale,” Kenneth Ziegler, CEO at Logicworks, said in a statement carried by NFVZone. “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 provides private, public and hybrid cloud solutions for diverse sectors. One of its promising areas is the healthcare market. This market has its own unique requirements.

“In healthcare, each application requires a different and unique infrastructure,” the company explained in a statement. “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.”

In fact, speed has become increasingly important – with the latest advances in technology, such as the cloud. Customers want it and it’s important for company revenue.

“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.”
