Disaster recovery in 2018 is still a challenge, when applications fail, achieving the business mandated RTO / RPO is not always an option. Complex networking and troubleshooting gets in the way of scheduled testing and validation.

In this presentation, I will show you how using NSX along with SRM will provide your organization the tools to not only reduce recovery time, but allow application owners and administrators to test a mirror like production replica of the environment without changing IP addresses. Real automation use cases and having the ability to incorporate east / west traffic and all firewall policies in a segmented application bubble that is totally non-disruptive to the live production deployment.

Topics Covered will include:

  • NSX functionality, Cross-VC networking and security
  • SRM and recovery automation, testing and validation automation using vRO
  • Planned migrations and disaster recovery vs business continuity objectives

As businesses evolve their application delivery methods, new strategies are emerging that include moving them to a public cloud provider. This brings a new set of operational challenges for securing these applications, often resulting in inconsistent security policies. In this session, we’ll dive into the deployment of applications in AWS and how VMware NSX Cloud provides consistent security policies to these applications.

Join us as we discuss:

  • The operational challenges of securing workloads in public clouds
  • How to ensure that workloads support security policies and developer agility
  • Integrating secure application workloads with native AWS services such as Elastic Load Balancer and Relational Database Service

Today, the public cloud is no longer a single thing, but rather a portfolio of services that different teams use for different needs. In fact, the 2018 State of the Cloud report by RightScale found that organizations use five clouds on average. Still, most organizations continue to work out the best way to use, manage, and secure private data centers and public clouds to meet their application needs. Adding complexity to this challenge is the way applications are constructed and where they can reside to ensure proper functionality.

In this next installment of our series on Getting More Out of NSX, we’ll introduce how NSX Data Center capabilities can now extend to public cloud workloads using NSX Cloud, such as those in Microsoft Azure. We’ll introduce the solution and demonstrate how to address your application management and security needs, as well as examine the business justification for deploying VMware NSX technology to workloads on Microsoft Azure. We’ll demo the solution, provide an overview of functionality, discuss use cases, and compare this solution to other VMware cloud offerings. Join us for this webcast and learn:

  • Current use cases and overall benefits of NSX Cloud
  • The current capabilities of VMware NSX Cloud with Microsoft Azure
  • How to manage network functions and write security policies that apply to on-premises VMs and Azure workloads at once

Micro-segmentation enables East-West security controls and is a key building block to a secure datacenter. In NSX for vSphere 6.4, we have built on the constructs of security policy with the introduction of context-aware micro-segmentation – an innovative approach to application and user identity firewalls. Taking advantage of the capabilities of context-aware micro-segmentation, we have added two new features to NSX for vSphere 6.4: Application and Protocol Identification and Multi-session Identity Firewall. In this webcast, you will learn:

  • How context-awareness expands micro-segmentation to give you more fine-grained visibility and control of your security policies
  • How to enforce security policies using Application and Protocol Identification
  • How to support for multiple user sessions by expanding the Identity Firewall
