VMware NSX network virtualization software makes it possible for IT organizations to obtain new levels of business agility, allowing you to deploy advanced policy based network services for your applications as quickly as a virtual machine, today, leveraging your existing physical network infrastructure or next generation network hardware from any vendor.

Back in September, I wrote about the value of deploying the VMware NSX network virtualization platform on Cisco UCS and Nexus infrastructure. We had an overwhelming amount of customer response and request for more content about this deployment scenario. As such, we’ve created a new design guide which you can download here that describes a simple and straight forward example of how to deploy VMware NSX for vSphere on an infrastructure consisting of Cisco UCS and Nexus 7000 series switches. This basic guide should serve as a starting point from which to tailor a design for your specific environment.

We want to offer our thanks to the content creation team here at VMware for collaborating on this effort:
