Configure, create, deploy

NSX is a Software-Defined Network (SDN) solution developed by VMware, which is activated at the vCenter level, and is managed directly from your vSphere interface. With NSX, you can configure the rules to access your networks, create your security policy and deploy the different network services that you need to build your infrastructure, in just a few minutes!

The NSX plugin: deploy your network services quickly and easily and define your security policy in a few clicks.

The Edge Gateway

Among the library of available network solutions,
the Edge Gateway allows you to create NAT rules, firewall rules and provides features such as Load balancing, VPN and DHCP.
For example, if you want to deploy firewalls in your infrastructure, NSX will create Edge Gateway VMs, that you can configure on two levels:
At the entrance of your public and/or private networks:
these firewalls protect your infrastructure on a global scale (at the portgroup level) for each of your networks.
In distributed mode at the level of your VMs:
these firewall rules protect your VMs individually (at vNIC level) in order to implement a protection policy on a case by case basis, which is either different to or additional to your infrastructure's global protection policy.

Keep calm and use an API!

In addition to the vSphere graphical interface, use the NSX API to automate creation of certain configurations or to deploy your network security rules from command lines.
