“I Want to Be an NSX Technology Partner” – Use Cases, Program and Enablement for the Security and Network Ecosystem [TAP9776]
Sunday, Aug 28, 2:45 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. | Islander G, Level 1, Mandalay Bay Convention Center
“NSX is for Everyone” is the watchword for VMware’s SDDC drive with our customers. And VMware NSX is the fastest growing VMware technology since the introduction of ESX, over 10 years ago. NSX is the key technology for every business to unite their hybrid deployments and to partition their massively converged infrastructure for optimum value. Key to driving this capability in the inclusion of a robust ecosystem partners for security and network policy solutions. A new SDDC architecture to deliver on promises of better and more relevant security control is open to integration by technology partners. How will this ecosystem be enabled through VMware? What solutions and services are NSX proven? How does a VMware technology alliance partner engage with VMware to envision, build and deliver for the NSX marketplace? Global Technology Alliances and Ecosystem Services are your VMware partners for an NSX Networking and Security Program. We will introduce you to the SDK and certification materials for NSX Advanced Services Insertion for Endpoint and Network. Find out from your alliance and ecosystem team, the qualifications for program participation and the structure of this partner program and deliverables. Start your path to NSX technology partnership with guidance from this session.
Meet the Partner NSXperts – How and What to Plan for in your Network and Security Services – Panel Discussion with Q&A [TAP9777]
Sunday, Aug 28, 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. | Islander G, Level 1, Mandalay Bay Convention Center
VMware NSX partner integration involves developing services and solutions that are a part of transforming the data center from a various collection of connected devices to a platform automating the service of business applications. The opportunity of this software defined approach to data center infrastructure comes as a challenge to the architecture that shaped legacy approaches and defined categories of services. How does a partner service for a virtual network in NSX differ from its physical counterpart, what new capabilities are offered and which assumptions are discarded when a decentralized and topology-neutral platform changes much of what defined product innovation in the past? How can you plan for a product that focuses on the business need for applications, and support needs for policy and operation? Understand what makes a good network and security service with Service Composition, Distributed Firewall and micro segmentation, horizontal scaling and unique introspection methods. Listen to a discussion and ask open questions, with technology owners and leaders for the NSX partner ecosystem.

To provide a more consistent vCenter end-user experience, VMware launched vSphere Web Client Plug-in Partner Program in 2016. In this session, we will provide an overview of the program and outline key benefits for partners, such as certification. Once certified, Web Client Plug-ins will be “VMware-Ready” and displayed in vCG.
