Deliver Consistent Cloud Networking and Security for Applications Running Natively in Public Clouds. VMware NSX Cloud provides a common cloud networking and security model across clouds to improve operational scalability, control, and visibility — with lower OPEX. Consistent Networking and Security. Learn how VMware NSX Cloud is delivering enterprise-class capabilities and operational efficiencies to applications running natively in public clouds. Improved operational scalability and consistency. Having a uniform operational model, via a single pane of glass and common API, allows Cloud IT to simplify and scale operations across a growing number of virtual networks, availability zones, regions, and clouds. VMware NSX Cloud brings performance, standardization and security to applications running natively in public clouds. Increased network visibility and analytics. VMware NSX Cloud improves network visibility and analytics, ensuring the health and availability of applications in the cloud.
Use existing network management tools to get deep visibility into end-to-end traffic flows and packets — within and across virtual networks, availability zones, regions, and clouds. For years VMware has been delivering consistent networking and security for thousands of on-premises data centers and private clouds. VMware NSX Cloud is now delivering enterprise-class capabilities and operational efficiencies to applications running natively in public clouds. Consistent and scalable micro-segmentation security. VMware NSX Cloud gives you easy control over East-West traffic between application workloads running in the cloud. Define security policy once and apply to workloads anywhere — across cloud virtual networks, regions, availability zones, and multiple cloud providers. Security policies are dynamically applied based on workload attributes, and enforced at the instance-level. Security rules follow workloads when they are moved. You can define policies based on rich constructs, such as workload attributes and user-defined tags.
VMware NSX Cloud — Precise Control Over Cloud Networking
VMware NSX Cloud gives IT precise control over cloud networking topologies, traffic flows, IP addressing, and protocols used within and across multiple public clouds. For example, you can provision consistent application stacks or services — including networking and security — across multiple clouds. Stretch subnets to run applications across multiple availability zones. Or create templates to simplify provisioning and management of networking and security across public clouds. Provisioning and configuration management can be automated via REST API requests using your existing automation tools.
End-To-End Visibility Via Existing Operations Tools
VMware NSX Cloud service provides standard interfaces and protocols to access the network data you need from your cloud networks. Flow, packet, and event information is available via IPFIX, Traceflow, Port Mirroring, and Syslog. This data can be consumed by your existing Day-2 operations tools, and used to enable deep, end-to-end visibility for monitoring, troubleshooting and auditing. This rich operations data helps to dramatically shorten the time it takes to identify and resolve network connectivity, performance and security issues within and across public cloud infrastructure.
Control over East-West traffic between application workloads running natively in public clouds. Security groups and rules can be defined based on rich policy constructs, such as instance name, OS type, AMI ID, and user-defined tags. Apply distributed firewalling directly to workloads running in VPC underlay networks or NSX Cloud overlay networks. Security policy is automatically applied and enforced based on instance attributes and user-defined tags. Policies automatically follow instances when they are moved across clouds. Quarantine rogue and compromised workloads that are running in the public cloud without micro segmentation security. Quarantined instances are prevented from communicating on the cloud network. VMware NSX Cloud distributed firewalling architecture, enforced at the virtual network interface of each instance, eliminates additional network hops and traffic.
