Network Virtualization and Security Platform


NSX delivers a completely new operational model for networking that forms the foundation of the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).

  • NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware.  
  • All network components can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application.
  • Micro-segmentation and granular security are delivered to the individual workload.
