If you want to go fast, go alone.

If you want to go far, go together.

The premise behind this saying is the reason why VMware and VMUG are excited to announce the creation of the NSX community at VMUG.  The education, certification, and adoption of new technologies can be met with fear and uncertainty as legacy traditions get challenged.  By building a community, we can provide strength in numbers that can facilitate learning and help people develop a mindset of embracing the people, process, and tooling challenges that come with VMware NSX.

This new community will be dedicated to network and security virtualization.  It will serve as a robust resource for individuals who are motivated to learn more about VMware NSX and its tremendous impact on the data centers of today and tomorrow.  VMware NSX is at the core of next-generation enterprise solutions for IT automation, micro-segmentation, application availability, and cross-cloud architecture.  The community will offer an opportunity for Q&A with NSX experts and product managers, special community content, discussions with peers, and much more.
