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.

VMware NSX and Comprehensive Security for the SDDC

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

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…)

Advanced Security with VMware NSX and Check Point vSEC [Video]

Monday, September 28th, 2015

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…)

6WIND – From Data Plane Acceleration to Virtual Appliances

Data Plane Acceleration with 6WIND and Intel DPDK

Data Plane Acceleration with 6WIND and Intel DPDK


6WIND is an interesting company I’ve been following for some time now, initially out of curiosity, and then out of more curiosity :-) . They first started as a networking software company claiming to solve performance challenges for software defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV). How you ask? They leverage the capabilities of multicore processors and Intel’s Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) to allow direct access to the data plane enabling a zero-copy mode from network to CPU! (more…)

Dell VRF-lite & VMware NSX: Multitenancy Across Physical & Logical Networks

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Please checkout the white paper Dell Networking: Multitenancy Across Physical and Logical Environments with VRF-lite and VMware NSX. In the white paper I discuss use cases and how NVO and VRF-lite can be used together to deploy a consistent multitenant framework across logical and physical networks. In this short blog, I expand on the concept I presented in a prior blog, Multitenancy on Dell Networking Switches via VRF-lite, of how NVO and VRF-lite together can be used to deploy a consistent multitenant framework across logical and physical networks.

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco


I’ve been meaning to write this blog for some time now as VMworld 2013 ended in San Francisco in late August. However, as VMworld just eneded in Barcelona, Spain last week, I guess it’s still not too late. I have to say out of all the tech events/conferences I attend, VMworld 2013 is definitely one of the most informative and beneficial. With an agenda filled with back-to-back speaker sessions, hands-on-labs, discussions on the solutions exchange expo floor, networking opportunities, and informal after-hour events, VMworld has catapulted to a must-go-to event for those in the high tech industry of networking, systems, and Enterprise/Datacenter infrastructure.

XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi – Architecture, API, and Coding

Monday, December 24th, 2012

VirtualizationBelow is a link to the slide deck for a presentation I gave to some friends/colleagues for a Berkeley Virtualization and Cloud Computing certification course I took in early 2012. For my final project I did a XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi hypervisor comparison in regards to market share, architecture/installation, and APIs/coding. The project involved not only a presentation but coding for all three hypervisors – XenServer, Hyper-V, and ESXi. Technical details, demos, and coding examples are provided in the presentation. You can also download all code from either the download section of this site or for the latest code updates download from GitHub. (more…)
