VMware NSX Data Center
Deliver a L2-L7 Virtualization Platform Across Clouds
Harness Agility Through Automation
Bring one-click provisioning to your networking and security services — and access powerful flexibility, agility, and scale — by running the entire L2-L7 stack in software, decoupled from underlying physical hardware.
Make Your Security Intrinsic
Deliver granular protection for your apps via micro-segmentation down to the individual workload. Create context-aware security policies per workload to defend against lateral threats within your environment.
Enjoy Consistent Multi-Cloud Operations
Manage consistent networking and security policies across private and public clouds, from a single pane of glass, regardless of where your application runs – VM, container, or bare metal.
Save on Both CapEx and OpEx
Lower CapEx by up to 35% by consolidating networking and security functions to a single distributed virtualization platform, and slash OpEx via simplified operations and optimized traffic flows.
What Are the Key Use Cases for NSX?
Adopt Zero-Trust Security
Use the micro-segmentation capabilities in NSX to lock down critical apps, create a logical DMZ in software, and reduce the attack surface of a virtual desktop environment. Zero-trust security is now attainable and efficient in private and public cloud environments.
Speed Delivery of Networking and Security
Accelerate application delivery by leveraging blueprints to automate the provisioning and management of networking and security services consistently across all sites and clouds — or by exposing the infrastructure as code.
Extend Networking Across Clouds
Streamline your multi-cloud operations with consistent networking and security, and, in the process, enable multi-cloud use-cases ranging from seamless data center extension, to multi-DC pooling, to rapid workload mobility.
Power Your Cloud-Native Apps
Provide integrated, full-stack networking and security for your containerized apps and microservices, including native container networking for Kubernetes, micro-segmentation, and end-to-end observability for microservices.
Expand Your Virtual Cloud Capabilities
Upgrade to Intrinsic Security
Rely on the only purpose-built internal firewall to secure east-west network traffic and protect workloads consistently across clouds.
Run VMware Cloud on AWS
Deliver a seamless hybrid cloud by extending your on-premises vSphere environment to the AWS Cloud.
Leverage Global Visibility
Get end-end operations visibility and troubleshooting spanning virtual, physical and public cloud network infrastructure and firewalls.
Advanced Threat Detection with IDS/IPS
Replace discrete appliances with a distributed software IDS/IPS solution to detect lateral threat movement on E-W traffic and easily achieve compliance.
Extend NSX to Cloud Apps
Deliver consistent networking and security for your applications running natively on public clouds — from a single pane of glass.
Get Recommended Security Policies
Simplify operationalizing micro-segmentation with rich application topology visualization and automated policy recommendations.
