Check-out this overview and walk-through presentation I recently did on Cross-VC NSX functionality introduced in NSX 6.2. Deployment models, Multi-Site, and Disaster Recovery solutions are also discussed. To view the video, you must first register. You will then have access to this video and other VMware/NSX sessions that can be viewed on demand.
If you haven’t already, checkout my post on the VMware Network Virtualization blog where I describe and show a demo on Advanced VMware NSX Security Services with Check Point vSEC. Most of the information is from prior posts I had written on my personal blog here, but I do aggregate some information and add some additional details: Advanced VMware NSX Security Services with Check Point vSEC.
If you haven’t already, checkout my post on the VMware Network Virtualization blog where I describe and show a demo of how Splunk can be used to monitor the VMware NSX distributed firewall (DFW), and, with a little Python code, help automate the creation of DFW rules: Automating VMware NSX Security Rules Creation using Splunk and Some Code.
I’ve been playing with the VMware NSX-V 6.2 REST API using both a browser based REST API client and Python. While I was exploring different methods, I deleted the default NSX-V Distributed Firewall (DFW) L3 section via REST API call within Python. Unfortunately, this prevents me from being able to add any rules to the NSX-V DFW, since rules must be added to a section, and I deleted the default DFW L3 section. The only way to add another section through the VMware vSphere web client is to right click an existing section and select “Add section,” however since I only had the default section which I deleted, this is no longer an option.

I’ve written several prior articles on the VMware NSX network virtualization platform as it relates to security. NSX offers such a robust platform for security, I sometimes come across folks interested in NSX yet not aware of the full potential of NSX in terms of security. I hope to provide some additional insight in this short blog. (more…)
In a prior blog, I wrote about VMware NSX and Check Point vSEC integration for advanced security. Check out the VMware NSX Check Point vSEC demo on the VMware NSX YouTube channel or embedded directly below. In this demo, I step through a quick overview of Check Point vSEC, step through deployment, and show an example of URL Filtering and Application Identification. (more…)
Ahead of this year’s VMworld which was just this past week (08/30 – 09/03), VMware recently released NSX 6.2 with many new and exciting features. You can see a list of new features listed in the NSX 6.2 online release notes. In this short post, I’ll briefly discuss the new Cross-vCenter Networking and Security (Cross-VC NSX) functionality. For more details and information, checkout the VMware NSX 6.2 for vSphere Documentation Center. (more…)
One very exciting and strong use case for VMware NSX is advanced security. VMware NSX has some inherent security features and also allows for 3rd party security appliance integration. In this blog, I’ll briefly discuss the firewalling and micro-segmentation capabilities of VMware NSX-vSphere. (more…)
