VMware NSX® is the network virtualization and security platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC), delivering the operational model of a virtual machine for entire networks. With NSX, network functions including switching, routing, and firewalling are embedded in the hypervisor and distributed across the environment. This effectively creates a “network hypervisor” that acts as a platform for virtual networking and security services. Similar to the operational model of virtual machines, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independently of underlying hardware. NSX reproduces the entire network model in software, enabling any network topology—from simple to complex multitier networks—to be created and provisioned in seconds.
Users can create multiple virtual networks with diverse requirements, leveraging a combination of the services
offered via NSX to build inherently more secure environments.
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.
VMware NSX delivers a completely new operational model for networking that forms the foundation of the Software-Defined Data Center. Because NSX builds networks in software, data center operators can achieve levels of agility, security, and economics that were previously unreachable with physical networks. NSX provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services—including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, quality of service (QoS), and monitoring. These services are provisioned in virtual networks through any cloud management platform leveraging the NSX APIs. Virtual networks are deployed nondisruptively over any existing
