VMware Plans to Release New Version of NSX, Connects Enterprise Data with Public Cloud: Report
FREMONT, CA: In order to address the challenges experienced in deploying a virtualized infrastructure in the cloud, VMware is planning to release a new version of NSX virtual networking software. The upcoming version will create a network overlay for application traffic thereby connecting enterprise data centers to public clouds, reports Antone Gonsalves for TechTarget.
The latest version of NSX is currently under the testing phase with Amazon Web Services (AWS) as the cloud provider. To manage workloads hosted on AWS and Microsoft’s Azure, the company is also planning to add support in the vRealize Suite to complement the new version.
VMware’s NSX is a network virtualization platform that delivers the entire networking and security model in software by virtualizing the network. Breaking through physical network barriers, NSX enables data center operators to achieve speed and agility while reducing costs. The platform also combines Nicira NVP and VMware vCloud Network and Security into one unified platform.
Built on a distributed architecture that integrates network services with the hypervisor kernel, NSX delivers Layer 2 – Layer 7 services through software for customers to grow their infrastructure through the addition of more server nodes. The architecture enables the virtual networking software to handle up to 1 TB per second of network traffic per cluster of 32 hosts.
