Connecting multiple data centers together has been a challenging and expensive proposition. As a result, application availability and agility has suffered. NSX solves this problem by abstracting network functions from the underlying physical hardware and running them in software.
With the network running entirely in software, disaster recovery becomes simple. Hardware changes or manual configurations are not required in a disaster recovery event, dramatically improving your Recovery Time Objective and reducing the associated costs.
By using NSX to extend the network across data centers and to the public cloud, businesses gain the ability to deploy applications anywhere and seamlessly move them, independent of geographic boundaries, providing unprecedented infrastructure agility and reliability.
Baystate Health found that VMware NSX is the model for healthcare networking, allowing them to be both highly secure and extremely agile in a rapidly changing environment.
“Healthcare is under tremendous pressure to reduce costs, especially operational costs. With VMware NSX, we are able to create a more fluid, liquid, automated data center that allows us to do more with less.”- Joel Vengco, CIO at Baystate Health.
- Disaster Recovery
Completely synchronize network and security configuration to a recovery site for rapid recovery in the event of disaster. NSX mitigates the need to re-configuring IP addresses, recreate security policies after a failover or the need for manual tools and scripts for synchronizing configuration across sites.
- Application Anywhere
Create a unified, seamless, and resilient pool of networking and security infrastructure to run your applications distributed across multiple data centers and to the public cloud. Applications can be deployed in any location and seamlessly connect to resources located across sites.
- Application Mobility
Move applications and workloads seamlessly between data centers and the public cloud. Network and security configuration the virtual machine is preserved, regardless of where the workload is running at a particular point in time.
