VMware NSX: Only Network & Security virtualisation platform that brings the operational model of a VM for the Network
IT organisations have gained significant benefits as a direct result of server virtualisation. VMware NSX, the security and network virtualisation platform extends this trusted virtualisation technology across to the data centre network to now deliver the same benefits to networking and security in software, decoupled from traditional networking hardware.
In much the same way that server virtualisation programmatically creates, snapshots, deletes and restores software-based virtual machines (VMs), NSX network virtualisation programmatically creates, snapshots, deletes, and restores software-based virtual networks. The result is a completely transformative approach to networking that not only enables data centre managers to achieve orders of magnitude better agility and economics, but also allows for a vastly simplified operational model for the underlying physical network through automation of provisioning and management.
With the ability to be deployed on any IP network, including both existing traditional networking models and next generation fabric architectures from any vendor, NSX is a completely non-disruptive solution.
