It's time to bring your network into the future. For a truly modern data center, virtualizing your network is key. In this comprehensive webinar, you will find out:
- Why now is the right time to virtualize your network
- How network virtualization works
- Best practices, tips and ways to save time and money
VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform that enables the implementation of virtual networks on your physical network and within your virtual server infrastructure. It delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. NSX can be categorized as a Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solution that allows network administrators to programmatically initialize, control, change, and manage network and security behavior dynamically.
Join us to learn the benefits:
With data breaches in the United States reaching an all-time high last year, companies are more concerned than ever about security. Many VMware customers cite NSX’s security capabilities as a main use case. This is because NSX allows for micro-segmentation, a practice through which small workloads are individually cordoned off to prevent any East-West movement of a breach. In contrast to most IT networks, where one firewall protects the entire perimeter, a breach into a micro-segmented network can only impact a small subset of data.
The shift to a software-defined network has been shown to save companies millions of dollars in capital and operational expenditures. The savings result, in part, from decreased spending on new hardware and hardware maintenance. There is also significant savings in person-hours—both on the part of IT personnel and the employees at large. Without NSX, IT administrators must manually configure each change to a network. This not only takes them away from more valuable work, it also makes the network more vulnerable to human error. And human error is a main source of network outages, which in turn, impact the productivity of the average employee.
Time to Market
When a company with a hardware-based network prepares to bring a new app to market, it is forced to wait several days while the associated cycle for provisioning the network runs its course. NSX reduces this cycle time to just minutes, so companies can beat their competition to market.
