VMware NSX Advanced per Processor

VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the software-defined data center, delivering the operational model of a virtual machine for entire networks. Similar to the operational model of virtual machines, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned and managed independently of underlying hardware. NSX reproduces the entire network model in software, enabling any network topology, from simple to complex multi-tier networks, to be created and provisioned very fast. Users can create multiple virtual networks with diverse requirements, leveraging a combination of the services offered via NSX to build inherently more secure environments.

With NSX, network functions, including switching, routing, and firewalling, are embedded in the hypervisor and distributed across the environment. This effectively creates a "network hypervisor", that acts as a platform for virtual networks and services. Here are some key features of NSX:

  • Switching: Enable logical layer 2 overlay extensions across a routed (L3) fabric within and across data center boundaries. Support for VXLAN-based network overlays.
  • Routing: Dynamic routing between virtual networks performed in a distributed manner in the hypervisor kernel, scale-out routing with active-active failover with physical routers. Static routing and dynamic routing (OSPF, BGP) protocols supported.
  • Distributed Firewalling: Distributed stateful firewalling, embedded in the hypervisor kernel for up to 20Gbps of firewall capacity per hypervisor host. Support for Active Directory and activity monitoring. Additionally, NSX can also provide north-south firewall capability via NSX Edge™.
  • Automation of Security Policies with vRealize
  • NSX Edge Load Balancing
  • Server activity monitoring
