Virtualize the Network with VMware NSX and Key Training

The future of virtualization is here and it’s an exciting time. VMware NSX is the network virtualization and security platform for the software-defined data center. NSX brings virtualization to your existing hardware network and transforms network operations and economics by delivering a completely new operational model for networking in your software-defined data center.

Networks can now have the same level of flexibility as virtualized servers. With VMware NSX, you can spin up a network like you would a virtual machine (VM). In fact, NSX reduces the time it takes to provision custom, multi-tier network topologies and enterprise class security services from weeks to down to seconds. How’s that for innovation?

If you’re just getting started on your journey to the software-defined data center and network virtualization, check out our free one-hour Introduction to VMware NSX webinar. Chris McCain, VMware Director of Networking and Security and VCDX #79 walks through how VMware NSX fundamentally changes the data center by adding agility and efficiency to network operations.

Don’t stop there – continue your learning with specialized training from our NSX experts with our 5-day comprehensive VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0] which focuses on installing, configuring and managing VMware NSX.

Bookmark our NSX Training and Certification webpage which details future training courses and certifications and/or sign up to be notified when a new course or certification becomes available.

As the data center transforms, stay ahead of the curve and learn more about virtualizing your network with these additional resources.
