At VMworld 2014 we focused on the basics of network virtualization. What VMware NSX is, what it does, and how network virtualization would change datacenter networking.  We shared the many benefits of virtualizing networks and you caught on.

Just one year later, network virtualization is going mainstream. So at VMworld 2015, have nearly 100 sessions that are guaranteed to fit your needs, whether you’re an #NSXninja or a network virtualization newbie.

Thinking about virtualizing the network at your company or organization? Want to see how others have done it? We’ve got 20 VMware NSX customers ready to share their learnings and insights and talk about how they’ve virtualized their networks.

Curious about how VMware is collaborating with industry leaders and emerging startups to solve customer problems around security, operations, and integration between the physical and virtual worlds? We’ve got sessions on those topics, too. Our partner ecosystem is growing and our partners will share the benefits of their integrated offerings.

But that’s not all! We will be highlighting proven VMware NSX use cases that will teach you all you need to know about a whole range of topics—from micro-segmentation to IT automation, multi-tenancy, application continuity, and security for VDIs.

So take a look at the list of sessions below, and then check out the schedule builder on to organize your week.

Also, if you’re looking for more advanced sessions, check out Part II of this series here.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at VMworld US 2015.
