Vendors have differed in their approach to delivering on the promise of SDN. In this paper, we compare two such SDN platforms: Cisco’s Application-Centric Infrastructure (ACI) and VMware’s NSX platform.
This document is targeted at networking and virtualization architects interested in deploying VMware NSX network virtualization in a multi-hypervisor environment based on the integrated solution from VMware and Juniper.
VMware’s Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) vision leverages core data center virtualization technologies to transform data center economics and business agility through automation and non disruptive deployment that embraces and extends existing compute, network and storage infrastructure investments. NSX is the component providing the networking virtualization pillar of this vision. As a platform, NSX provides partners the capability of integrating their solution and build on the top of the existing functionalities. NSX enables an agile overlay infrastructure for public and private cloud environments leveraging Juniper’s robust and resilient underlay infrastructure that also helps bridge the physical and virtual worlds using the L2 gateway functionality.

Most data center security emphasizes strong perimeter defense to keep threats on the outside. But this model is ineffective against today’s new types of threats, which may be borne by east-west traffic inside your data center. Some of these intrusions may lurk for days, weeks, or months to discover and exploit vulnerabilities. An existing concept called micro-segmentation is the solution. But until now, it was hardware-intensive and costly. In this solution overview, you’ll learn why micro-segmentation is now within your organization’s reach.

Undoubtedly you are aware of network virtualization, but perhaps you’ve yet to hear a compelling case for it. If the extended network capabilities and simplified management enabled by network virtualization aren’t compelling enough reasons, data center security should be. To manage today’s coordinated and persistent security threats, which often come from within, data centers need to implement “Zero Trust” networking. Virtualization puts it within your reach.

Security breaches targeting government and military data centers are increasing. Attackers have learned to defeat current means of physical network security, which emphasize perimeter defense. Today, organizations must protect the workloads inside the data center, utilizing a concept called micro-segmentation to build a “Zero Trust” network. But that has been unrealistic, requiring too great an investment in hardware, time, and manpower — until now, that is. Download this use case from VMware and Carahsoft® now to learn why.
Organizations that invest in proprietary applications and data for competitive advantage in their industries only succeed by making those investments available to employees, customers, and partners that drive revenue and opportunity. Securing those investments requires a fresh perspective as the types of devices accessing the cloud datacenter are changing rapidly and new workloads, such as VDI desktops, are appearing more regularly alongside server workloads. These changes alter the potential attacks and potential threats to datacenters whose security primarily stands firm at the perimeter, however, within the data center the security is weak.
By combining VMware NSX with the AirWatch Tunnel and/or VMware Horizon View, organizations are able to bridge the device to datacenter security gap in a way that both increases the overall security of the cloud datacenter and makes it far simpler to manage security through defining and delegating application and services to specific users. Thi
Cloud datacenter security is becoming imperative in the new age of malware attacks. To stay competitive and secure, organizations are turning to smart networking in an effort to close the datacenter security gap. The combination of VMware NSX, AirWatch Tunnel and Horizon View helps close this gap and simplifies security management for IT professionals. With the upcoming prevalence of authentication and identity management in an organization’s infrastructure, the need to delegate and define network access continues to highlight the important role of hybrid cloud security that addresses all end-user devices.
"Are you planning a migration off Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop? Or looking for ways to make them run as good as you thought they should? Then this is the session for you. Come hear from the architect of VMware's Citrix migration and enhancement strategies as he explains how key VMware technologies such as Horizon, App Volumes, Instant Clone and NSX can help.
We will dive deep on how to evaluate the state of the Citrix environment, assess project requirements and review real world scenarios. By the end of the session you will know all about the best-practices, tools and services available to ensure your project is a complete success. Download the webinar to learn how VMware technologies can help solve your Citrix problems!"
IT requires a solution that solves the challenge of securing proprietary applications and data in the cloud datacenter and is available only to users and devices that are delegated safe for access. VMware NSX solves this challenge through user-level micro-segmentation. The VMware NSX approach offers several differentiated advantages over traditional security approaches.
