VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).
By bringing the operational model of a virtual machine to your data center network, you can transform the economics of network and security operations. NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VMs with a policy-driven approach.
Proven Networking for the SDDC
The NSX virtualization platform is helping hundreds of customers realize the full potential of a Software-Defined Data Center. NSX delivers for networking the capabilities VMware already provides for compute and storage. Create, save, delete and restore virtual networks on demand, without reconfiguring your physical network.
Agility and Streamlined Operations
NSX reduces the time to provision multi-tier networking and security services from weeks to seconds, abstracting virtual networks from the underlying physical network. This lets data center operators achieve faster deployment and greater agility, while providing the flexibility to run on top of any network hardware.
Security and Micro-segmentation
NSX brings security inside the data center with automated fine-grained policies tied to the virtual machines, while its network virtualization capabilities let you create entire networks in software. This approach securely isolates networks from each other, delivering an inherently better security model for the data center.
Platform for Advanced Networking and Security Services
NSX provides a platform for bringing the industry’s leading networking and security solutions into the SDDC. By taking advantage of tight integration with the NSX platform, third-party products can not only deploy automatically as needed, but also adapt dynamically to changing conditions in the data center.
