The NSX word is being quiet famous now within the IT and none IT people, but this is totally from two different points of views. The IT people who are following what’s new on the Market will say “NSX is the network virtualization technology produced by VMware”, while the none IT people will say “NSX is the Honda(Acura) famous sport car”.
VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). It is a transformative architecture from VMware that enables the full potential of a Software-Defined Data Center, making it possible to create and run entire networks in parallel on top of existing network hardware. This results in faster deployment of workloads, as well as greater agility in the face of increasingly dynamic data centers. It reproduces in software the entire networking environment, including L2, L3 and L4–L7 network services within each virtual network. NSX offers a distributed logical architecture for L2–L7 services, provisioning them programmatically when virtual machines are deployed and moving them with the virtual machines.
Honda(Acura) NSX is a mid-engine sports car manufactured by Honda. While the NSX always was intended to be a world-class sports car, engineers had made some compromises in order to strike a suitable balance between raw performance and daily drivability. In December 2011, Honda officially announced the second-generation NSX concept. The first production version was shown several years later at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.
So, if you are IT manager and you are responsible for the 2015 budget what will be your target for this year? VMware NSX or Honda NSX? In the end I think some people will say what about having both of them, why VMware for example is not giving Honda NSX when you pass the VCDX-NV? 🙂
