Today we announced Virtualization Centric Fabric (VCF) being available as part of its Netvisor offering. VCF is the corner stone of unifying the physical and virtual network and a major architectural shift from legacy network operating systems and rigid networking topologies. As virtualized PODs (typically a collection of hundreds of servers installed in 4-20 racks and running virtual machines and/or containers, all connected via a leaf/spine switch) become more prevalent as the unit of measure of an application building blocks, the need for running the virtual and physical network as one entity has become critical and is regularly cited as the number one customer pain point. This pain point becomes more amplified as users begin to form their private clouds, Hybrid clouds, or fully articulated Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC).
