VMware NSX Scalability

Technology Manager
Scalability is really easy. We can scale within an hour. We can scale either new controllers or add new hosts to the fabric. View full review »
VMware NSX Engineer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
So far it's been very scalable, and with the new versions that are coming out, it's even more and more scalable. They've added more and more features of routing that they didn't have in the first versions, which allow it to be more scalable. It's become better than the actual infrastructure, the original network infrastructure that's there, because we can lay it on anything and it will scale to any part of the network that we want.

Information Security Manager at Anana LTD
We manage a huge infrastructure, and it has not been a problem for us. It has caused no issues. We generally load balance with separate hardware. With the normal traffic that we see between virtual machines, they never leave the host. So, there are no real issues there. We will use separate, dedicated hardware, because we are at such a scale that our customers prefer to have separate load balances in the hardware. View full review »

It's one of the major benefits of it. The distributed nature of NSX is really what the customers are interested in: spread into workloads across a lot of servers and not working out one host too hard. View full review »

Luke Kesselring
EVS Engineer 3 at Cabela's
It's definitely scalable, however large, however small. We can bring people in with VDI desktops, with a control set already around that, to be able to control what they get without having to create a new VM and recreate all the policies. It's already done upfront. View full review »

Infrastructure Architect
We've already scaled it across two data centers. We'll be incorporating two additional data centers, to give us that footprint, or IP address migration across four data centers. So, it's quite scalable. View full review »
