Virtual networks reproduce the network model in software, allowing customers to build complex, multi-tier network topologies and provision them programmatically in seconds. NSX includes a library of logical networking services – logical switches, logical routers, logical firewalls, logical load balancers, logical VPN, QoS, and distributed security.The NSX virtualization platform is helping thousands of customers realize the full potential of a Software Defined Data Center.

Become a part of the dynamic and diverse team that owns and drives the NSX product and solution strategy for the Cloud.

A self-service interface allows users to build custom combinations of these services in isolated software-based virtual networks that support existing applications without modification or deliver customized requirements for new application workloads. Similar to virtual machines in compute, virtual networks are programmatically provisioned independent of networking hardware. Decoupling from hardware introduces agility, speed and operational efficiency that has transformed data center economics.
