VMware, Cisco and the Virtual Datacenter

Last week, VMware and Cisco announced their latest collaboration for the virtual datacenter of the future. The Cisco Nexus® 1000V distributed virtual software switch is expected to be an integrated option in VMware Infrastructure. "In this highly agile environment, the new Cisco Virtual Network Link (VN-Link) technology on the Nexus 1000V will integrate with VMware’s vNetwork Distributed Switch framework to create a logical network infrastructure that will provide full visibility, control and consistency of the network."

If you pair this virtual networking capability with VMware's VDC-OS' capability to manage virtual infrastructures over the on-premise and off-premise cloud the cloud-based datacenter of the future, is now a reality today.
