What is our primary use case?
The primary use case is microsegmentation for other VMs, which should provide us great value. We are quite early in our use case of it. As for now, the performance is looking good.
The main reason for deploying the product was the possibility to isolate machines inside a VLAN from each other. It was also to have a local firewall with firewall profiles attached to the machines.
What is most valuable?
The organization of it is logical, useful, and intuitive.
The security part of micro-segmentation is getting more important.
For how long have I used the solution?
Less than one year.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
We are early in our use of the product, but stability has been good so far.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
It seems like it will scale.
How is customer service and technical support?
We have not used technical support.
How was the initial setup?
We had some complexities implementing into the other parts of a network. Otherwise, the NSX product was straightforward to setup.
What about the implementation team?
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
We were already using other VMware products, so this product seemed to be the best product for our purposes. The solution is less complex than other competitive products.
What other advice do I have?
I would recommend this VMware product.
We are not using vCloud Director.
