Dell EMC and VMware bring an operational model for networking that forms the foundation of the Software-Defined Data Center. Because NSX builds networks in software, data center operators can achieve levels of agility, security, and economics that were previously unreachable with traditional physical networks. NSX provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services—including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, quality of service (QoS), and monitoring. These services are provisioned in virtual networks through any cloud management platform leveraging the NSX APIs. Through Dell’s open networking, companies are best able to take advantage of this disaggregation of a virtual network overlay and an open physical underlay.

Key Benefits of Dell EMC Open Networking and VMware NSX

  • Open networking switching provides customer choice in operating systems through disaggregation. Through an open networking platform, Dell EMC delivers strong analytics, automated provisioning, programmability, and Layer 2 Gateway support for an NSX virtual overlay.
  • Best in class physical underlay offers high performance spine/leaf switching with layer 2 gateways and non-blocking active/active forwarding for effective bridging to the NSX virtual overlay.
  • End-to-end data center product leadership in server, storage, and networking solutions designed to work together.
  • Lower TCO through Dell EMC Open Networking: save up to 55% on space, up to 70% on power and cooling, and up to 57% on hardware network costs.
  • Micro-segmentation and granular security delivered to the individual workload.
  • Reduced network provisioning time from days to seconds and improved operational efficiency through automation.
  • Workload mobility independent of physical network topology within and across data centers.
