On today’s Heavy Networking we explore the evolution of the NSX platform with sponsor VMware.
This episode has two parts. In the first, we look at how NSX is expanding from the data center to encompass the WAN via integrations with VeloCloud, and into the public cloud.
We also examine new security features and capabilities in NSX-T, including the service-defined firewall and adaptive microsegmentation. Our guest for part one is Tom Gillis, SVP and General Manager in VMware’s Networking and Security Business Unit.
In the second segment we hear from an NSX customer. James Cruikshank, Platform Engineer at Sky UK, shares how NSX-T makes it possible for the networking side of the house to enable developers to quickly provision resources such as VLANs, load balancers, and other elements using CI/CD tools.
He also talks about how VMware helps remove barriers between infrastructure and developer teams, and what that means for overall operations.
