Disengage from physical network hardware
As software-defined networking (SDN) for your data center, NSX enables you to utilize your physical network as a pool of network capacity. VMware NSX network virtualization creates a software-defined network topology over your physical network hardware. Just as a VM is a software container using CPU, memory and storage, NSX creates an SDN connecting VMs to switches, routers, firewalls, load balancers, virtual private networks and more.

Make your network more nimble
Manual provisioning and management reduces efficiency and limits your ability to deploy and scale rapidly. NSX breaks through current physical network barriers and lets your data center achieve orders of magnitude better agility and economics.

NSX offers a platform to insert other vendor services. Integrated software and hardware partner products can range from network gateway services, application delivery services and network security platforms, to security services.
