VMware has released the NSX network virtualization platform to meet the diverse and evolving needs of both IT and developers. With the release of VMware NSX for vSphere 6.3 and VMware NSX-T 1.1, VMware is advancing support for the most critical IT use cases—automation, security and application continuity—while offering development organizations an agile software-defined infrastructure to build-out cloud-native application environments.
VMware NSX delivers networking and security focused on the application independent of the underlying infrastructure. VMware NSX for vSphere is the network virtualization platform for vSphere-based deployments. The NSX network virtualization platform is a cornerstone of VMware’s Cross-Cloud Architecture, and a key component of VMware Cloud Foundation, Cross-Cloud Services and VMware Cloud on AWS. More than 11,000 professionals have participated in VMware NSX training and more than 7,000 professionals have achieved an NSX certification to date.
“VMware NSX is the industry’s most widely deployed, production-proven network virtualization platform,” said Milin Desai, Vice President of Products, Networking and Security Business Unit, VMware. “With this update, we continue to focus on delivering value in support of key NSX use cases while further simplifying ongoing operations at scale. We are also continuing to invest in NSX as a network virtualization platform that addresses heterogeneous environments, enabling our customers the flexibility to choose new application frameworks or move to public cloud with confidence.”
