VMware NSX is the leading network virtualization platform that delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. Similar to virtual machines for compute, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independent of underlying hardware. NSX reproduces the entire network model in software, enabling any network topology—from simple to
complex multi-tier networks—to be created and provisioned in seconds. It enables a library of logical networking elements and services, such as logical switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, VPN, and workload security. Users can create isolated virtual networks through custom combinations of these capabilities.
Key Features of NSX:
-Logical Switching: Reproduce the complete L2 and L3 switching functionality in a virtual environment, decoupled from underlying hardware.
-NSX Gateway: L2 gateway for seamless connection to physical workloads and legacy VLANs.
-Logical Routing: Routing between logical switches, providing dynamic routing within different virtual networks.
-Logical Firewall: Distributed firewall, kernel enabled line rate performance, virtualization and identity aware, with activity monitoring.
-Logical Load Balancer: Full featured load balancer with SSL termination.
-Logical VPN: Site-to-Site & Remote Access VPN in software.
-NSX API: RESTful API for integration into any cloud management platform.
