Benefits of VMware NSX

VMware NSX™ is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) that allows you to transform the economics of network and security operations by letting you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VMs with a policy-driven approach.

NSX delivers a completely new operational model for networking that breaks through current physical network barriers allowing data center operators to achieve order of magnitude better speed, economics and choice.

Just like server virtualization enables IT to treat physical hosts as a pool of compute capacity, the NSX approach allows IT to treat their physical network as a pool of transport capacity that can be consumed and repurposed on demand.

Key Benefits

  • Agility – NSX reduces the time to provision multi-tier networking and security services from weeks to minutes allowing these services to be in lockstep with server and storage provisioning to enable applications to be deployed faster.
  • Micro-Segmentation – NSX addresses the fundamental, critical security issues by preventing threats from moving laterally in the data center and has been validated by industry. Virtual networks are inherently isolated from each other and from the physical network. Kernel based scale-out capacity and performance combined with distributed enforcement and automated provisioning and management, makes NSX-based secure micro-segmentation scalable, operationally feasible and cost-effective.
  • Cost – NSX reduces both OPEX and CAPEX. Automation eliminates manual configuration from the network provisioning process and simplifies network hardware requirements.
  • Choice – NSX network virtualization platform operates on any hypervisor, any network and integrates with any cloud management platform.
  • Dynamic Extensibility – NSX is a distributed platform that enables third party services to be inserted into the service chained as specified by application policy at run-time.
  • Non-disruptive Deployment – NSX works with existing applications and workloads, hypervisors, cloud management platforms and physical network hardware from any vendor
