VMware further extends SDN software to work in non-VMware environments


VMware today introduced two new versions of its flagship virtual networking software. One named NSX for vSphere 6.3 has deep integrations with other VMware products and the other, named NSX-T 1.1, is for use in cloud-native environments that may not be controlled by VMware management tools.

The moves are aimed at extending NSX’s use cases and potential customer base. The announcements come on the heels of VMware last week updating figures related to usage of the software defined networking product. VMware reported that it has 2,400 customers using NSX, including 850 that are running the software in production and that it is on a $1 billion annual sales rate.
