VMware NSX Review

Comprehensive graphical interface, overall functional, and great technical support

What is most valuable?

Some of the key features I find most valuable are the highly graphical user interface, virtualization of networks, and Microsoft application compatibility. It has all the functionality that we require.

What needs improvement?

One drawback is this solution requires a lot of other products in the VMware ecosystem to have a full end-to-end operation orchestration monitoring. You have to buy a lot of add-ons to fully utilize the functionality.

Some additional features in the next release could be for the solution to be more directed toward the end-to-end functions, from physical to virtual monitoring. It should also include streamlined troubleshooting of our operation. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used the solution for approximately two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has been stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have found the solution to be highly scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The experience we have had with the solutions technical support has been wonderful.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward and it took a few weeks.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution. I would like to point out this is a vendor-lock-in solution, where the user might be confined to a certain vendor for some time before they can move on adopting other vendors. 

I rate VMware NSX an eight out of ten.
