You know what your customers are looking for – you hear it every day. They want the agility, efficiency and security of the Software-Defined Data Center. They need the same level of IT automation and security at their branch offices as they have at their corporate offices from a network virtualization platform that truly delivers.
Now you can help your customers realize the full potential of the SDDC with NEW NSX packaging.

Partner Opportunity Knocks
In case you missed it, network virtualization is growing FAST from an estimated $2B this year to $12.5B in 2020. * Add to that the fact that a whopping 46% of all data spend will be on Software Defined Networking (SDN) by 2018**and you are poised for your business to take-off!
The new NSX packaging helps you tap into this opportunity by tying product features to use cases, making it easier to address your customer’s projects. Most importantly, it now gives you the ability to introduce NSX features and functions into the commercial market.

Effective May 3, 2016, the VMware NSX offerings will be Standard, Advanced and Enterprise.
By matching your customer’s requirements to the NSX capabilities of Automation, Security and Application Continuity, these packages open up new market segments and opportunities:

• Standard Edition: Networking capabilities that help customers reduce IT costs and complexity by automating IT workflows.
• Advanced Edition: Provides all of the features of the Standard edition plus a fundamentally more secure data center with micro-segmentation. This is key differentiator that allows you to position yourself as a trusted advisor to your customers to win security business.
• Enterprise Edition: Includes all features in the Advance edition plus networking and security across multiple domains enabling you to participate in larger business opportunities.
