It is no secret that IT is in constant evolution. IT trends such as Cloud Adoption, Distributed Applications, Micro-Services or Internet of Things have emerged over the last years.
Nevertheless, the focus is still on applications and on how they compute and deliver data to consumers. Whether their role is to generate revenue, pilot industries, logistics, health or even your programmable thermostat; top level goals of organizations are still security, agility and operational efficiency, everything else associated with the applications has changed:
- Threats have become more advanced and persistent.
- Users now access the data center from devices and locations that represent significant challenges.
- Application architectures are now more widely distributed and more dynamic than ever before.
- Infrastructure changes have evolved with the convergence of resources and questions around public cloud offerings.
VMware NSX is a perfect fit to address these concerns from the network and security standpoint. NSX reproduce all Network & Security services of Data Centers in logical space for best speed/agility and a deeper security.
Visit my session at VMworld Las Vegas (Session ID: NET7907) to hear the detailed presentation on NSX firewall, load balancing and SSL-VPN capabilities.
And don’t forget, the GUI is not the king! 😉
Presenter: Romain Decker
Session Number: NET7907
Session Title: Advanced Network Services with NSX
Date and Time: 8/30/16 (Tuesday) 2:00 PM
Abstract: Applications are everywhere and increasingly more complex. They require much more than switching and routing on the network side. Clouds should be able to host any applications, including the complex ones. This session will discuss the concepts for designing and operating NSX network services such as firewalling, load balancing, and VPN. We will examine and explain how you can better consume those services by automating them, or by using other mechanisms such as NSX API. After this session, you will leave with a better understanding of how NSX Network and Security services work, and how to leverage them to better support your applications.
