This post is co-authored by Tom Gillis, SVP and GM, VMware Networking & Security.Many years ago, Dell upended the PC industry with its direct-to-consumer model, before extending its disruption into enterprise IT. VMware revolutionized the industry with the introduction of the virtual machine, and soon after, hypervisors. Along our parallel timelines of innovation, we took that disruption to the network—VMware with NSX, Dell EMC with Open Networking.Dell EMC and VMware continue to disrupt, only now, we’re doing it together. Earlier this year at Dell Technologies World we announced close collaboration between Dell EMC and VMware at the edge, the core and in the cloud with closely integrated solutions to help customers embrace transformation across their organizations. Well, we were not finished and continued expanding this partnership with even more exciting solutions to help customers continue to modernize their networks for the cloud era.At VMworld 2019 we highlighted the now-shipping Dell EMC SD-WAN Edge powered by VMware. This is much more than just an appliance. With this comprehensive offering you get Dell EMC virtual cloud orchestration, a worldwide network of virtual cloud gateways and networking optimized hardware, powered by VMware’s industry-leading SD-WAN software. We’ve been working together for over a year to develop and optimize this edge access platform for the evolving bandwidth and management needs of customers living in a hybrid-cloud world. Sold, deployed and supported by Dell EMC, we offer customers a simple one-stop solution that will take the complexity out of the WAN and modernize the network edge.Also at VMworld, Dell EMC and VMware announced SmartFabric Director, the industry’s only fabric management platform developed by VMware and Dell EMC for core data centers. This extends our shared vision of a software-defined data center by simplifying the definition, creation and deployment of data center fabrics with intent-based auto-provisioning. SmartFabric Director tightly integrates with VMware vSphere and NSX-T to ensure the physical underlay fabric is correctly provisioned for the smooth functioning of application workloads in a VMware overlay environment. This is important for organizations that have embraced software-defined networking and are looking to ensure their physical underlay networks are finely tuned for that overlay environment.Powerful stuff, and it’s only the beginning—in future releases, expect to see even more features, like the ability to intelligently auto-discover applications, monitor and remediate hot spots and congestion across virtual and physical networks, and allow SmartFabric Director to be agnostic to the NOS, including support for the open-source SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud).For a quick and informative overview take a look at this ESG Labs First Look video:We talked about the edge and core. What about the cloud? Well, we continue to work together to strengthen our Dell Technologies Cloud platform with the most powerful, simple and flexible networking solutions available. Dell EMC PowerSwitch, SmartFabric Services and VMware Virtual Cloud Network solutions are raising the stakes when it comes to network automation, management, virtualization, security and much more. And we’re just getting started—together, Dell EMC and VMware are not just transforming customers’ IT, we’re also disrupting the entire industry. And there is a lot more innovation ahead.For more information check out DellEMC.com/Networking and vmware.com/products/networking-and-security.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________About the co-authorTom Gillis is the SVP/GM of the Network and Security Business Unit at VMware.

Five Friday-Saturday doubleheaders – April 3 and 4, May 8 and 9, June 26 and 27, July 10 and 11, and Aug. 28 and 29 – are scheduled. “What I like about sanctioning with IMCA is the rules. They’re cut and dried, pretty straight forward and right there on the website,” said Villanueva. “We want to build the Stock Car class here and we want our drivers to be able to go to other IMCA tracks and not have to chance anything to race.” IMCA Modifieds have run at Battle Mountain since 2002. Both the look of the cars and the quality of the racing that evening had fans asking track officials to bring the division back more often. Gene Henrie was the Stock Car feature winner when the Wild West Tour came to Battle Mountain last July. “The fans really liked them. We’ve already got six area drivers who already have or are building or buying cars,” promoter Santiago Villanueva said. “We’re looking forward to making this happen.” BATTLE MOUNTAIN, Nev. – After rolling out the red carpet for the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars last summer, Battle Mountain Raceway becomes the first track in Nevada to sanction The Class Too Tough To Tame in 2020. Stock Car points earned at Battle Mountain figure toward EQ Cylinder Heads Southern Region standings.

Published on April 12, 2014 at 8:46 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] Billy Ward’s personal celebration was cut short.Just after he scored a game-winning goal — one he later admitted he didn’t see once it left his stick — Ward was bear-hugged by Randy Staats and then the entire Syracuse bench.The team poured onto the field in the seconds following Ward’s goal. Bobby Wardwell sprinted 80 yards from the Syracuse goal to the dog pile. The Carrier Dome erupted.And Ward was under it all, laying on the same field that the Orange limped off after losing to Maryland to start an 0-3 stretch to start its first crack at Atlantic Coast Conference play.It’s a start that was erased when Ward’s shot whizzed past North Carolina’s Kieran Burke and into the back of the net, and is now only a small stain, if that, on the Orange’s salvaged season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s kind of a blur, to be honest,” Ward said. “You see the net move and you’re kind of like, ‘What just happened?’ And then the next thing you know, you’re getting tackled by a bunch of guys.”Ward’s third goal of the day capped an 11-10 victory for No. 7 Syracuse (8-3, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) over the No. 4 Tar Heels (9-3, 2-3). Despite starting conference play 0-3, Ward’s goal officially booked Syracuse’s ticket to the conference tournament in Chester, Pa., on April 25.“The overtimes, the back and forth, the goalie saves, just a great game for college lacrosse,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “I think for Syracuse University, a great win here in the Carrier Dome.”After scoring, Ward was at the center of Syracuse’s celebratory dog pile at the 25-yard line.But for SU’s Nicky Galasso, what was more important was when Ward took center stage inside the Syracuse locker room at halftime. With the Orange trailing 6-3 through 30 minutes, it was Ward who sparked his team with a passionate locker room speech.“You know, after Duke, everyone started questioning our heart,” Ward said. “I told everyone, this team has more heart than any team I’ve been on. It’s just a matter of doing the little things right. And we’ve been practicing like that.“I just said, ‘Let’s be us and let’s be great.’ And that’s what happened.”“He threw a couple more adjectives in there,” Desko joked before exiting the postgame press conference. “But we won’t talk about that.”With a gauntlet of a schedule this season, facing eight top-10 ranked teams — in addition to ranked St. John’s and a strong Binghamton team — Syracuse fought its way into the conference tournament after having the slimmest of odds.But in a span of a week, Virginia lost to UNC, the Orange beat No. 6 Cornell, and Virginia lost to Duke — setting up an ultimate ACC tournament play-in game between SU and UNC.That fate was on the stick of Staats’ midway through the second overtime. Staats dodged down the right side of the SU attack, and when a double team came, found Ward in the middle of the field.“I just let it fly,” Ward said.While Kevin Rice led the Orange with six points on three goals and three assists, Ward tallied four points — including the game-winner. He also scored two critical goals in the first quarter that cut a 4-1 deficit to 4-3.It was a constant theme throughout the day — Syracuse fighting to stay in the game.“We were just making smart dodges,” Galasso said. “We played a good team game and we just got to keep that going.”SU midfielder Scott Loy put a shot through Burke’s legs with 11 seconds left in the quarter to tie the score at seven heading into the fourth quarter.Galasso scored a goal with 7:47 left in the fourth quarter, giving the Orange a 9-8 lead, its first of the game. But two minutes later, UNC’s Chad Tutton bounced a shot by Wardwell to tie the game at nine.Trailing 10-9 with 8.4 seconds left in regulation, Rice scored from six yards out to force overtime, which eventually set up Ward’s game winner in double OT.Now, the Orange’s seeding depends on the April 19 matchup between Maryland and Notre Dame. If Notre Dame wins, the Orange will be the No. 3 seed. Either way, the Orange will play Duke in the first round of the tournament.Although Syracuse lost to Duke 21-7 on March 23, postseason play means a clean sheet. The only thing Syracuse cares about is that, in its first year in the ACC, it’s heading to the conference playoffs.“Don’t get me wrong, this win feels good,” Ward said. “But our next opponent, Hobart, is just as important as this one is. We can’t slip up next week. Just luckily, with this win today, we’re in the ACC tournament.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
