NSX News You Can Use by Roger Fortier – March 6, 2017

In this week’s News You Can Use, we hear from Tom Corn in a podcast from BankInfoSecurity on using the cloud to prevent breaches. We also learn about an early adopter of NSX, Baystate Health, as well as some best practices for migrating new or existing applications onto VMware NSX.

  • BankInfoSecurity’s Matt Schwartz spoke with VMware’s Tom Corn at RSA 2017 on how the cloud can be used to improve security “by helping to separate data from applications, networks and other infrastructure.” In this podcast, Corn discusses how to better leverage the cloud for security, the benefits of using virtualization, and the need to design enterprise IT environments that are simpler and easier to secure.
  • TechTarget’s Allisa Irei reports on how network architect Mike Weisse has spent the past few years helping Baystate Health become an early adopter of hyper-converged infrastructure and VMware NSX. Weisse hopes the healthcare organization has a future as a small-scale SDN service provider, “using microsegmentation and multi-tenancy to securely run other organizations’ networks parallel to its own.”
  • Matt Brown of CRN reports on Dell EMC’s push to lead market transformation against Cisco in open, software-defined networking strategies. A top executive at a data center solutions provider who works with both Dell EMC and Cisco claimed, “Why do I want to buy all these really expensive [Cisco] switches when I can just layer in NSX? VMware virtualized server, storage and networking and it’s a problem for Cisco. I don’t think they have an answer for it.”

In this edition of News You Can Use, we look at coverage that highlights NSX-T’s importance to the future of the data center, with articles in CRN, TechTarget and Enterprise Networking Planet that discuss the promise of the NSX-T platform about the potential of the trailblazing new product.

  • CRN’s Mark Haranas included NSX-T in his latest new product slideshow, “10 Innovative New Networking Products That Are Turning Heads,” noting that new offering “has expanded” NSX by being compatible with non-vSphere environments.
  • In his latest, TechTarget’s Brian Kirsch looks at how outdated data centers should be modernized by adopting a hyper-converged infrastructure and software-defined networking like NSX, suggesting that “the portability and microsegmentation that VMware’s NSX brings is becoming an enabling technology that’s needed in a modern data center.”
  • In an article for Enterprise Networking Planet, reporter Sean Michael Kerner addresses how NSX provides a new way of looking at security, stating that through NSX-T “right now, VMware has the opportunity to fundamentally change how we think about computing.”

NSX News You Can Use by Roger Fortier – January 9, 2017

vmware-nsxHappy New Year everyone. Here’s the first NSX News You Can Use of 2017 from Roger Fortier.

  • In his round-up of the “10 Coolest Software-Defined Networking Technologies of 2016,” CRN’s Mark Haranas features NSX, referring to the technology as “popular” because of its hardware agnosticism and strong security use case through micro-segmentation.
  • TechTarget Contributor Brian Kirsch details the newly launched vExpert NSX program. He notes the program builds on the success of our vExpert loyalty program, and that the program could stimulate customer interest in VMware’s networking and security offering.
  • In an interview conducted last year with Fr. Robert Ballecer of TWiT’s This Week in Enterprise Tech program, Guido Appenzeller about how VMware “took the art of virtualization and turned it into something that is commonplace” through NSX.

  • Did you know VMware has more than 700 production NSX customers now? This according to VMware’s Veep of Products Milin Desai, who offers his perspective on NSX and the networking industry at large during his appearance on SiliconANGLE’s “The CUBE” show this month.
  • We Love Hardware!!! No seriously, NSX won big in the 2016 Virtualization Review Editor’s Choice Awards, with notoriously hard-to-impress reporter Trevor Pott speaking only positively of the product, stating that “NSX is the future,” and that with it, “VMware has set the market for software-defined networking (SDN) for the enterprise.”
  • From the “Looking into the Crystal Ball” department, VMware’s Bruce Davie and Tom Corn offer insight into the coming year in networking and security

  • VMware NSX was played up as part of two winning solutions – VMware Cloud Foundation and Virtustream Enterprise Cloud – as part of the CRN Products of the Year Awards. Cloud Foundation “allows for scalability to accommodate future growth demands” while also providing an up to 8X reduction in installation time, said Eric Barnhart, vice president for Dell EMC and VMware Solutions at Phoenix-based Avnet Technology Solutions, Americas. Deploying Cloud Foundation also can lead to up to a 40 percent reduction in total cost of ownership, Barnhart said.
  • Brian Kirsch, a member of the VMUG Global Board of Directors, takes to his column in TechTarget to showcase how VMware has “shown its commitment to NSX by integrating all of it into its major releases throughout the past year,” suggesting that the company has made a “big bet” on the virtual networking software by making it an integral component of Cloud Foundation, Cross-Cloud Architecture and vSphere, among other properties.
  • SiliconANGLE’s Mike Wheatley covers Vanson Bourne’s VMware-sponsored survey on the relationship between IT security and decentralization, noting that network virtualization frameworks such as NSX provide a solution to the various issues faced by IT teams as they combat this dichotomy.

  • In coverage stemming from announcements made during VMworld EMEA this year, The Register’s Chris Evans cited NSX as a “core” component of “future products that [VMware] see[s] as being revenue growth areas for the future,” suggesting that the solution will play a key role across company offerings moving forward.
  • Also following VMworld EMEA, Fintan Ryan at RedMonk penned a lengthy analysis of VMware’s “developer oriented next act,” noting how NSX’s functionalities in virtualization management and security would be introduced across existing and future VMware-enabled enterprise data centers.
  • According to Andrew Froehlich, a TechTarget contributor and the President of West Gate Networks, NSX is the defining force behind Cross-Cloud Architecture as “a single virtual network that is configured and managed the same, no matter where the resources are,” making it easier for companies to build a hybrid cloud infrastructure.

·        In Virtualization Review, Dan Kusnetzky reports on VMware’s announcement that its Photon Platform will add networking and storage services powered by NSX and Virtual SAN arguing that this move is a strong expansion of VMware’s go-to-market strategy, and is “likely to convince some that VMware is the way to go.”

·        Chris Preimesberger with eWeek highlights how VMworld Europe’s end-user computing announcements, including the release of vSphere 6.5 and Virtual SAN 6.5, fit nicely into VMware’s larger vision for Cross-Cloud Architecture by further integrating “the world’s most ubiquitous network virtualization platform:” NSX.

·        In his latest VMware feature for TechTarget, Antone Gonsalves interviews Shamus McGillicuddy and other IT thought leaders about the value propositions associated with VMware’s recently announced partnership with Amazon, with McGillicuddy suggesting that “the glue for the VMware-AWS hybrid cloud is NSX” and referring to the product as a “key enabler” of the integration.
