We can't go without NSX, so it's invaluable from this perspective.The solution is very expensive.We haven't had to hire a dedicated network engineer because NSX handles 90 percent of it. The reduced overhead in terms of managing networks has been the biggest plus.We have saved man-hours and decreased our security exposure.Pricing and licensing could be improved as we are a government entity. Lower pricing could always help.

Overview

Micro Focus Network Virtualization (NV) software enables you to capture and emulate real-world network conditions, so you can use real production data into your performance testing, and along with its powerful NV Analytics, it allows you to quickly detect and resolve performance bottlenecks before deployment. Or simply said, NV empowers you to release high quality apps by accurately testing and optimizing them for all network conditions. First, NV will discover and capture live network performance conditions, such as latency, packet loss, bandwidth and jitter and then it will test the application against the captured conditions to see how various networks affect the application's performance. Then NV will analyze results and gain insight into the root cause of the performance bottlenecks to ensure that the rolled out application is optimized for target network performance.

VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). By bringing the operational model of a virtual machine to your data center network, you can transform the economics of network and security operations. NSX lets you treat your physical network as a pool of transport capacity, with network and security services attached to VMs with a policy-driven approach.
