NSX is the network virtualization platform used in VMware’s Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) model, which enables the operational model of the virtual machine to be used for network structures. With NSX, network functions (switching, routing, firewall) are distributed throughout the data center structure embedded in the hypervisor. This model provides the “Network Hypervisor” layer, which acts as a platform for virtual networks and services. Just like virtual machines, virtual network topologies are defined and managed, completely independent of the physical hardware that constitutes the infrastructure. NSX can repeatedly create the entire network model, using only the software layer. It allows you to set different network topologies from the simplest to the complex in seconds. This enables IT administrators to implement networks with a wide range of characteristics, with many combinations of services and a much higher level of security.
