Like compute virtualization, the VMware NSX® network virtualization platform checks a stunning number of boxes on IT’s priority list. The success of implementing NSX is based in detail, detail, detail. The more your team works through the details of how network virtualization will be supported by—and affect—people, processes and technology, the better the results.
Some results are both immediate and far reaching, like stronger and more adaptable data center security. VMware NSX builds security into the DNA of your data center network, which allows you to achieve a Zero Trust (ZT) security model. The ZT model says that in a more virtualized world there should be no distinction between trusted and untrusted networks—all networks and segments must be subject to security controls. NSX introduces a capability called micro-segmentation that makes ZT a practical reality.
