Extreme Networks Integrates with VMware Solutions to Drive New Innovations in the Software-Defined Data Center

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (EXTR) today announced an extended integration offerings with VMware to deliver IT management and analytics solutions to accelerate the adoption of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) in small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and enterprises. The integration with VMware, the leader in the virtualization infrastructure software market, expands Extreme's data center offerings and enhances its value proposition within the virtualization marketplace to target customers across multiple industries, including healthcare, education, manufacturing and hospitality.

As part of this collaboration, Extreme Networks is integrating its NetSight advanced network management system with VMware vRealize® Suite to address the challenges of data center administrators looking to maintain and optimize resources for physical and virtual technologies. With a mix of virtual and physical servers, storage and network topologies growing, Extreme is simplifying the maintenance and operations of the SDDC in a unique and hardware-independent fashion. The vRealize Suite integration partnership is targeted to cover Extreme's entire wireless and analytics portfolio, including its NetSight advanced management system and Purview application analytics, which enables administrators to view server, storage and network elements supporting their SDDC on a single pane of glass system.

The collaboration with VMware is focused on the creation of a solution with the unique ability to leverage the network itself as "tap points" to allow IT administrators to realize cost savings over traditional tap products; in addition, to allow IT visibility into the performance of thousands of applications and millions of application flows. It is also targeted to help improve mean time to resolution (MTTR) and service (MTTS) across virtual and physical networks, streamlining processes that today require multiple administrators operating disparate systems. Upon this integration's release, IT organizations can now optimize their investment while reducing management overhead.
