NSX is the VMWare SSDC platform which provides the next generation Datacenter flavor to legacy Datacenter. In this course you will learn what NSX is and what its benefits are. This course will teach you packet flow for each topic along with good pictorial representation of it.
From this course you will not only learn the basic concepts but it will also enables you to learn all advance concepts of NSX like Microsegmentation, vRNI, vRA etc. This course will helps you to prepare for DCV-NV or VCIX-NX exam.
The Course Pedagogy will help you to learn the following concepts on VMware NSX.
- Introduction of NSX and its requirement
- NSX Architecture & NSX Manager
- NSX Controller and its Architecture
- NSX logical Switches and Its traffic flow
- NSX logical Router and its traffic flow
- NSX Edge service gateway, its Architecture & Packet flow
- How L2 Extension is done via NSX
- How L3 Connection is done between Virtual and physical workloads
- Introduction to NSX Routing protocols and its working
- How VPN services works on NSX
- NSX Network & Security services concepts in detail
- NSX distributed Firewall and its Architecture
- NSX Security services
NSX is the SDN solution that deliver network security services to virtual workloads without any restriction. NSX is the programmable model which reproduce complex network and security services in a matter of seconds to minutes.
NEX provides following benefits:
- Data Center Automation: NSX speed ups the network provisioning, It also enforce the network and security policies. It helps in streamline the DMZ zones.
- Self Service Enterprise network: NSX helps quick deployment of test, development and production environment with quick provisions of applications.
- Multi-tenant Clouds: NSX helps in provisioning of automated tenants network. NSX helps in optimal utilization of hardware among various Tenants.
There are two version of NSX which VMWARE Provides:
- NSX-V (NSX for vSphere): It supports hypervisors running ESXi.
- NSX-MH (NSX for Multi-Hypervisor): It supports multiple hypervisors including ESXi, XEN-Servers, Hyper-V.
NSX requires vSphere environment with vCenter to coordinate changes, deploying, configuring and removing NSX components and services.
Let’s see an example where you can see that network services are being provide by routers which is acting as default gateway for servers.
