Five Things You Need To Know About VMware's New NSX-Based Virtual Cloud Network
The VMware NSX Cloud provides consistent networking and security for applications running in both private VMware-based data centers and natively in public clouds. With the new NSX Cloud, VMware will add native controls for Microsoft Azure.
"We've already had support for native workloads running in AWS before, and now we're extending this also to run on Azure," said Ramaswami. "A customer can get consistent security and visibility of applications running on their on-premise data center as well as in AWS and Azure in a very consistent manner."
NSX Cloud solves the challenges of using multiple public clouds, such as inconsistent policies and constructs across clouds, manual operations requiring policy for each cloud, and operations tools that are specific to each public cloud, according to Ramaswami.
