About This Video

  • Explain the advantages of VMware NSX
  • Explain the advantages of Nuage Networks VSP

In Detail

This course introduces Overlay SDN Solutions, also called Network Virtualization. This technology can make use of VXLAN tunnels to enable the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). Concepts, analogies, and practical demonstrations are used in this course to explain how you can use SDN to rapidly deploy networks.

The two main products discussed are:

1) Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP)

Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) provides software-defined networking (SDN) and policy-based automation for cloud deployments. You can use Nuage Networks VSP as a virtual overlay network platform for all your existing virtual and physical server and network resources. This open SDN and SD-WAN platform help you avoid vendor lock-in. It requires no proprietary or purpose-built hardware. And it supports all major virtualization and cloud management platforms, from Docker containers and traditional virtual machines to OpenStack and CloudStack.

2) VMware NSX

VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center. NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. These networks can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application. NSX provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, QoS, and monitoring.

This course is perfect for anyone who wants to quickly get up-to-speed with Network Virtualization.
