VMware NSX™ is the network virtualization and security platform for the software-defined data center. NSX brings virtualization to your existing network and transforms network operations and economics.
NSX reduces the time it takes to provision custom, multi-tier network topologies and enterprise class security services from weeks to seconds.
NSX reduces both OPEX and CAPEX. Automation eliminates manual configuration from the network provisioning process and simplifies network hardware requirements.
The NSX network virtualization platform operates on any hypervisor, any network hardware and integrates with any cloud management platform.
Similar to a virtual machine for compute, a virtualized network is a fully functional network in a software container, provisioned independent of underlying hardware or topology.
NSX delivers a new model for network security. Security profiles are distributed to and enforced by virtual ports and move with VMs.
Scale & Performance
NSX is deployed in production today by several of the largest service providers, global financials and enterprise data centers in the world.
