Datacentre solutions are at the heart of Softcat's partnership with VMware, its technology featuring heavily in the solutions we deploy for our customers. Similarly, we use VMware in our own cloud, making us exceptionally well-placed to deliver end-to-end solutions that harness on-premise and off-premise instances of VMware technology.

Networking & Security

VMware NSX is a critical component in enabling the Software-Defined Datacentre. For the first time, organisations can virtualise the network layer just like they did compute and embed security inside the perimeter as part of the fabric of their cloud.

Softcat has pioneered VMware's networking and security solutions since VMware's acquisition of NSX in 2014 and they have remained at the forefront of innovation in this area ever since.
