NSX Virtualization and Security Platform
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.
NSX is now also available as a service: VMware NSX Cloud delivers consistent networking and security for cloud-native applications. The service improves operational scalability, control, and visibility – with lower OpEx – across native public clouds such as AWS. Visit VMware for more information.
USE CASES FOR NSX
NSX embeds security functions right into the hypervisor. It delivers micro-segmentation and granular security to the individual workload, enabling a fundamentally more secure data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology.
NSX abstracts networking from the underlying hardware and attaches networking and security policies to their associated workloads. Applications and data can reside and be accessible anywhere. Move workloads from one data center to another, or deploy them into a hybrid cloud environment.
NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to workloads using a policy-driven approach. This automates networking operations and eliminates bottlenecks associated with hardware-based networks.
NSX enables micro-segmentation and granular security of workloads in virtualized networks, isolating sensitive systems and reducing both risk and scope of compliance. Use NSX to help ensure and demonstrate compliant operations with many regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, FedRAMP, SOC, CJIS, DISA STIG, and more.
