Our presentation this month introduces the architecture, engineering and implementation of VMware NSX Network Virtualisation.
Abstract: Remember life in IT before software abstraction and server virtualisation? VMware's ESX platform brought rapid application deployment to server hardware. Now VMware NSX virtualises networks and security for enterprise applications on any general purpose hardware.
This presentation will cover platform components, interfaces, tools, deployment cases, partner ecosystem, and more.
See www.vmware.com/go/nsx for background.
Presenter: Trevor Gerdes is Strategic Architect - Security and Networking for VMware Asia Pacific Japan. He has extensive experience in engineering and technical support, and has been with VMware for over six years. When he's not in planes and airline lounges, he spends time in the dark with stars and in the water with his kids.
