NSX at VMworld 2018 Europe – The Technical Session Guide

Hola! VMworld 2018 Europe is around the corner and we look forward to connecting with our VMware NSX community in Barcelona.  Before we go into session recommendations, let us give you a recap on what we have been up to since VMworld US.

Since VMworld US in August 2018, we have announced general availability for NSX-T Data Center 2.3. NSX-T Data Center 2.3 extends NSX platform support to Bare Metal servers, enhances multi-cloud control in AWS & Azure, advances security with N/S service insertion, and has many more enhancements.

Our friends from vSphere have also released vSphere 6.7 Update 1 which gives NSX-T N-VDS visualization in the vCenter now.

For automation fans, we have a Concourse CI pipeline which automates the NSX-T install. This pipeline can be used to stand up entire NSX-T environments on vSphere clusters by filing a simple parameter file.
