VMware NSX Other Solutions Considered

Andres Hurtado

We look at different vendors for our customers. It depends on the compliance and regulations that are in the systems for every single company's requirements. Every company will have specific needs for certain features that other options do or don't have. View full review »

Our customers usually compare NSX to Cisco ACI. The main issue is the underlying network that VMware does not provide visibility to. They chose NSX because they were already VMware customers and they already had vSphere. The second reason they chose NSX is because of the powerful features like microsegmentation, as opposed to relying on other vendors to manage the microsegmentation feature. View full review »

The most important criteria when selecting a vendor (like VMware), it's important to us that they have the following: * Their name recognition. * The support that they provide. * Their placement in the industry as a leader. * The things that they're doing with NSX, which are phenomenal. We're a supporter of VMware, and likewise they're a supporter and a partner with us and what we're doing. View full review »

We did not consider anyone else. If someone is looking for security in a vSphere environment, I don't know of another solution in the market besides NSX. View full review »

An important reason for selecting was VMware because they're the hypervisor we use and we see them to be a very valuable asset in purchasing something like NSX, and because they're the owner of the hypervisor and they have direct access into the hypervisor. That's very valuable for us. We foresee it being a very reliable product into the future. View full review »
