VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0]

VMware NSX

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX™. NSX is a software networking and security virtualization platform that delivers the operational model of a virtual machine for the network. Virtual networks reproduce the layer 2–layer 7 network model in software, enabling complex multitier network topologies to be created and provisioned programmatically in seconds. NSX also provides a new model for network security where security profiles are distributed to and enforced by virtual ports and move with virtual machines.
