VMware NSX is network virtualization platform that delivers operational model of a VM for the network to transform data center operations and economics. Programmatically create, provision, snapshot, delete and restore complex networks all in software. VMware NSX breaks through current physical network barriers, enabling data center operators to achieve order of magnitude better speed, economics and choice.
NSX reduces time it takes to provision custom, multi-tier network topologies and enterprise class security services from weeks to seconds.
NSX reduces both OPEX and CAPEX. Automation eliminates manual configuration from the network provisioning process and simplifies network hardware requirements.
NSX network virtualization platform operates on any hypervisor, any network hardware and integrates with any cloud management platform, with choice of partner services.
Similar to a virtual machine for compute, a virtual network is a fully functional network in a software container, provisioned independent of underlying hardware.
NSX delivers a new model for network security. Security profiles are distributed to and enforced by virtual ports and move with VMs.
NSX is deployed in production today by several of the largest service providers, global financials and enterprise data centers in the world.
