2014-01-09 10:05:45 - Fast Market Research recommends "Virtualization: Impact on Enterprise Networks and Cloud Infrastructure" from MindCommerce, now available

Virtualization represents a game-changer in IT infrastructure planning, operations, and management as major components (servers, desktops, storage and even entire data centers) are virtualized. The recent trend is for virtualization of key network components (routers, switches, dedicated servers, etc.), which is referred to in the industry as Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

NFV completely changes the way network architecture is viewed as fixed network elements, consisting of hardware components that are diverse in their make and configuration, is no more the design that is the norm. NFV allows an operator to optimize its infrastructure and increase service agility, representing a solution to problems that have plagued them for quite some time. NFV allows quicker time-to-market for new services because virtualized functions allow

operators to introduce new services much faster and at much lower cost.

NFV represents a technical approach and solution set that helps enterprise companies optimize their operation in the face of rising hardware costs, manpower costs and stringent IT budgets. This report provides comprehensive analysis of NFV and its relationship and importance to enterprise IT management, network equipment, and communications.

This report includes a working model Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to determine the business case for an organization to move to NFV. Unlike a static business case, a TCO model takes into consideration, feature/functionality deployment with respect to both time and geography dimensions.

Target Audience:

* Cloud service providers
* Enterprise companies of all types
* Telecom and enterprise API providers
* Communications infrastructure providers
* Enterprise networking equipment providers
