VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking embeds networking and security functionality that is typically handled in hardware directly into the hypervisor. The VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking network virtualization platform fundamentally transforms the data center’s network operational model like server virtualization did ten years ago, and is helping thousands of customers realize the full potential of an SDDC. VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking 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. The provisioning and configuration management of IT applications and services is often a manual, slow, error prone and inconsistent exercise. It can result in critical security and operational bottlenecks for the business.
With VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking you can reproduce in software your entire networking environment. VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, QoS, and monitoring. Virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independent of the underlying hardware. Already have VMware NSX?

VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking embeds security functions right into the hypervisor. It delivers microsegmentation 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.
VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking — Application Continuity
Move workloads from one data center to another, or deploy them into a hybrid cloud environment. Connecting multiple data centers together has been a challenging and expensive proposition. As a result, application availability and agility has suffered. VMware NSX solves this problem by abstracting network functions from the underlying physical hardware and running them in software. With the network running entirely in software, disaster recovery becomes simple. Hardware changes or manual configurations are not required in a disaster recovery event, dramatically improving your Recovery Time Objective and reducing the associated costs. By using VMware NSX to extend the network across data centers and to the public cloud, businesses can deploy applications anywhere and move them seamlessly, independent of geographic boundaries. To automates IT workflows, VMware NSX Standard Edition bringing agility to the data center.
VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking — Automation
VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking 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. The provisioning and configuration management of IT applications and services is often a manual, slow, error prone and inconsistent exercise. It can result in critical security and operational bottlenecks for the business and puts an organization at a competitive disadvantage. These challenges extend to networking and security, the last major pillar of the data center that has been lacking automation capabilities that truly remedy the shortcomings of legacy approaches. NSX is the network virtualization platform that enables the automation of networking and security services.
VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking
Applications and data can reside and be accessible anywhere. With VMware NSX Software-Defined Networking you can reduce the time to provision entire networks in software from weeks to seconds. It abstracts virtual networks from the underlying physical network, providing the flexibility to run on top of any network hardware. With improved operational efficiency through automation, network operators can achieve faster deployment and greater agility. Enables network micro segmentation. Provisioning NSX Software-Defined Networking brings security inside the data center with automated, fine-grained policies tied to the virtual machines. It enables micro segmentation to significantly reduce the lateral spread of threats inside the data center. Security policies travel with the workloads, independent of where workloads are in the network topology.
