Channel Partners, one of the premier media covering indirect sales channels that serve the tech industry, ran a poll on their site on December 13 that asked in part, “What’s the next big ‘software-defined’ sales opportunity?”
By a wide margin, respondents chose the trend toward NFV and virtual network functions (VNFs) replacing dedicated appliances such as load balancers, firewalls and edge devices.
Array’s AVX Series Network Functions Platform is designed specifically for this use case; it abstracts and automates the complex configurations required for NFV, while providing dedicated resources to each VNF (or VA) to guarantee performance.
