Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

IT Automation Series: Achieving Real IT Automation - The NSX Advantage

Join us for the second in a three-episode series on network virtualization and how to move from hardware-centric to software-centric networking—without disruption to your existing environment.

Network virtualization dramatically accelerates the delivery of IT services without major re-architecting, ripping, and replacing physical networks. Early adopters of network virtualization are achieving impressive results by automating IT processes that were once manual, lengthy, and error-prone. In this webcast we will focus on how VMware NSX enables businesses to move to network virtualization with three specific use cases:

IT Automating IT – Automate the provisioning, configuration, management, and decommissioning of network virtualization and security

Developer Cloud – Provide development and test teams with fast access to infrastructure by standardizing the compute, storage, network, and security configurations of full application stacks

Multi-Tenancy Infrastructure – Use micro-segmentation and isolation capabilities to maintain isolation between tenants in a multi-tenant cloud environment

Enable networking and security at the speed of software while building datacenter agility with network virtualization on industry standard Intel® Xeon® processor based server architecture.

  • Lightboard Series: Networking and Security for Virtual Desktops & Mobile Devices Recorded: Feb 23 2017 11 mins
    Hadar Freehling, Staff Security Strategist, Networking & Security, VMware
    Series Title: Illustrating the Value of Network Virtualization
    Series Abstract: Join VMware NSX experts for a series of short webcasts focused on the technology and business drivers around network virtualization. Using a lightboard, we’ll illustrate how network virtualization with NSX can support an organization’s strategic initiatives.

    Webcast 3/3
    Title: Networking and Security for Virtual Desktops and Mobile Devices
    Abstract: Learn how to deploy intelligent networking and micro-segmentation for VDI and extend these capabilities to secure mobile apps and devices. We’ll demonstrate how VMware NSX can help you manage virtual desktop user access, and how to limit users from jumping off one server to another. You’ll also learn how to apply a few easily managed rules in your data center that can reduce your attack surface with policies that dynamically follow virtual desktops. In the second part of the session, we’ll explore how the integration of AirWatch and NSX allows you to extend security from your mobile devices and applications to their data center resources.

    In this session, we will discuss:
    •Using intelligent networking and micro-segmentation to make VDI environments more secure
    •Minimizing your attack surface with rules and policies for dynamic virtual desktops
    Extending security from mobile devices and applications to the data center
  • NSX Master Class: Networking from Physical to Virtual and back again! Recorded: Feb 23 2017 56 mins
    Neil Moore & Ron Fuller
    In this session, we will bring an NSX infrastructure online in a running physical environment – a powerful example of migrating to a virtual infrastructure with no downtime. We will discuss the linking of physical devices to the edge services gateway and configuring routing protocols on network devices and in the NSX environment. We will also explain why a clear knowledge of your ecosystem, from the physical switch on up, will help you better understand how the overlay and the underlay come together. This master class picks up after the software has been installed, at the point when you need to start securing and passing packets in your environment.

    This session will include:

    A deep dive into setting up the physical and virtual network infrastructure.
    Demos you can follow to get NSX quickly running in your environment.
  • NSX Master Class: Security Recorded: Feb 23 2017 60 mins
    Jimmy Ray Purser & Ron Fuller
    The best actors don’t film an entire movie in a single day. The same is true for ‘bad actors’ in your data center: they don’t attack the whole data center at once, but start small and branch out rapidly. With this approach, they can make traditional segmentation methods ineffective. The key to security is to always expect a counter move. You need to make your data center operate dynamically, just as your threats do, yet remain flexible to support your applications. In this session, we will look at methods to operationalize east-west security in ways that ensure that scaling and flexibility don’t become an increased burden on your IT staff.

    You'll learn:

    Best practices from government recommendations
    Automation for security with Service Composer
    Security resource planning using Splunk and NSX

  • 3 Ways That Network Virtualization Transforms Data Centers Recorded: Feb 23 2017 43 mins
    Sean Howard, Staff Systems Engineer, Networking & Security, VMware
    If you feel like you’re being held hostage to a data center operational model that no longer delivers, learn how virtualized networking using NSX can transform your day-to-day work and deliver the business outcomes expected of IT. The abstraction of functionality from hardware into software also frees IT from the compromises between speed and security, or between security and agility.

    We’ll discuss the technical benefits of network virtualization, including:
    - Reduce service provisioning from days to minutes
    - Roll out non-disruptive deployment, completely decoupled from network hardware
    - Automate security for speed and agility in the data center

    Don't miss this opportunity to hear about the various use cases and IT outcomes of VMware NSX.

    Webcast 2/3
    Title: NSX for Multi-site Deployments and Disaster Recovery
    Abstract: Deploying NSX across multiple datacenters allows organizations to dynamically move and manage workloads between multiple physical locations. The benefits of this capability are immediately clear: workload mobility, resource pooling, central management, consistent security policies across vCenter domains/sites, and disaster recovery. In this session, we’ll illustrate use cases and capabilities, including L2 connectivity without the use of OTV, cross-data center security policies, and isolating networks for disaster recovery testing and validation. In the second part of the session, we’ll dive into how NSX can improve your business disaster recovery plan and strengthen your overall RTO.

    In this session, we will discuss:
    •The many benefits of deploying NSX across multiple data centers
    •Capabilities and use cases for cross-data center connectivity and security
    •Using NSX to improve your disaster recovery plans and strengthen RTO
  • Lightboard Series: Micro-segmentation Planning – What You Need to Know Recorded: Feb 9 2017 21 mins
    Sean O’Dell, Systems Engineer, Network & Security Business Unit, VMware
    Series Title: Illustrating the Value of Network Virtualization
    Series Abstract: Join VMware NSX experts for a series of short webcasts focused on the technology and business drivers around network virtualization. Using a lightboard, we’ll illustrate how network virtualization with NSX can support an organization’s strategic initiatives.

    Webcast 1/3
    Title: Micro-segmentation Planning – What You Need to Know
    Abstract: Are you interested in deploying micro-segmentation but not sure where to start? One of the challenges is acquiring a complete picture of what’s going on within the datacenter and understanding your network flows. We’ll show you how to collect and analyze network flows in real time with vRealize Network Insight, providing vital context into the virtual machines and the applications they are originating from or terminating to. Once you understand who is talking to whom and which flows need to be allowed or blocked, you can use that intel to effectively model security groups and firewall rules, making micro-segmentation easier to deploy.

    In this webcast, we will discuss:
    •The key steps you need to know to prepare for micro-segmentation
    •How to collect network flow data to build a picture of your application environment
    •Using network flow information to model security groups and firewall rules
