VMware updated its Virtual Cloud Network solution this week with new features that make it simpler to manage and secure networks and easier to build and manage applications running on top of Kubernetes.
The Virtual Cloud Network is VMware’s portfolio of software defined networking technologies that include NSX network virtualization and security software, VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud, and vRealize Network Insight, the company’s network visibility and analytics software. Cumulatively, the portfolio is meant to enable organizations to deploy and manage network connectivity and security from data centers to multi-cloud deployments and the edge.

The integration allows developers to focus on development without having to also configure load balancers, said Tom Gillis, senior VP and general manager of VMware’s networking and security business unit. They can launch an application, which includes all the required load-balancing capabilities, without having to touch the infrastructure at all, the company said.
