VMware

At VMworld 2020, Lumen, a provider of fiber-based networking connectivity and managed solutions, and VMware announced an enhancement to their ongoing partnership that’ll help streamline and secure edge computing

Amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, efficient and consistent edge computing has become more of a necessity, as teams are farther from their data centers than they’ve ever been. Lumen will help businesses of all sizes by using the VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud solution and VMware SASE Platform to integrate VMware SD-WAN,

VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Carbon Black to deliver a “Work from Anywhere” solution on its global edge infrastructure.

The aim is to, of course, reduce latency and enhance the experience on the edge. According to Shaun Andrews, Lumen chief marketing officer: “We believe customers can benefit tremendously from the combination of Lumen’s edge compute, network and IT services and VMware’s software to bring technology solutions closer, within milliseconds, of the digital interaction.

On top this, Lumen will also develop edge computing services for enterprises to create new digital services using VMware Tanzu. This advancement will allow applications to run consistently from the data center through the could and to the edge via the Lumen network.

“The combined capabilities of Lumen and VMware will empower organizations to take on the next phase of digital business,” said Rajiv Ramaswami, chief operating officer, products and cloud services at VMware. 

Ramaswami continued: “We are helping customers take advantage of holistic solutions that support the people, processes, apps, and data that power business.”
