VMware Releases an Enhanced Version of NSX
FREMONT, CA: VMware launches the latest version of NSX, version 6.2. The major enhancements according to Adam Armstrong, writing for Storage.com, include greater control within and across data centers, deeper integration into physical infrastructure and advancements in operations and trouble shooting.
Armstrong reports that VMware NSX 6.2 adds better support for application continuity and disaster recovery use cases through support for cross vCentervMotion over VXLAN with routing and security. Without changing the physical infrastructure, VMware NSX 6.2 enables customers to scale out vSphere environments within a single data center and across data centers by moving the entire networking and security model with the VM.
In addition, VMware NSX 6.2 adds Open vSwitch Database (OVSDB) support to NSX networking in vSphere environments, enabling simplified and consistent operations for the entire data center network and the extension of micro-segmentation to physical servers.
With regard to operations and trouble shooting, Traceflow allows users to synthetically create a packet that looks exactly like it came from a guest VM and inject it into the data path. Traceflow then traces its handling all the way through the forwarding pipeline across the physical network, and through the forwarding pipeline again before it’s intercepted just prior to delivery to the remote VM.
