Top Answer: The most valuable features are ease of use and user interface.
Top Answer: There is a license required for this solution and there is also a support license available. The price of the solution could be better.
Top Answer: NSX-T supports more platforms, and VMware NSX only supports some platforms like KVM. I want to see support for Hyper-V and other hypervisors. Their technical support could be faster as well.
