The Virtual Cloud Network provides a seamless, secure, software-defined networking layer from the network edge to the data center to the cloud edge. Using the VCN you can simplify your hybrid-cloud operations with an all-in-one cloud model that extends intrinsic security and end-to-end policy consistency across your entire environment.
Connect and protect applications across your data center and multi-cloud environment on bare metal, and containerized infrastructure. The Virtual Cloud Network is built on VMware NSX in the data center and VMware SD-WAN over the WAN, for a complete L2-L7 networking and security virtualization platform that provides consistent, pervasive connectivity from the network edge and data center, across your multi-cloud network.
Secure your business and detect and respond to threats with intrinsic security across endpoints and clouds. The VMware Service-defined Firewall secures east-west network traffic within the application in the data center. The firewall in the VMware SD-WAN Edge protects the network edge. Together, by leveraging deep visibility into workload behavior and stateful L2-L7 protection to mitigate risk, they ensure compliance, and lower costs—all while simplifying the operational model of protecting workloads.
The Virtual Cloud Network features VMware NSX Intelligence, a distributed analytics engine built into the hypervisor, enabling efficient packet inspection within the application and across the WAN by working with VMware SD-WAN for converged security policy management. Together, VMware vRealize Network Insight and NSX Intelligence help you build an optimized and secure network infrastructure across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Deliver consistent networking and security for your applications running natively in public clouds. No more infrastructure silos to drive up complexity and operational expense — instead, enjoy intrinsic security policies globally and precise control across virtual networks, regions, and clouds. NSX Cloud currently supports Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, including Azure Government and AWS GovCloud (US) regions.
Build an optimized, highly available, and secure network infrastructure across your Virtual Cloud Network, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments including NSX, VMware SD-WAN, vSphere, VMware Cloud on AWS, and Kubernetes deployments.
Empower network and application security teams to deliver granular security and segmentation posture, simplify policy compliance analysis, and streamline security operations with VMware NSX Intelligence, a distributed analytics engine built and managed natively within NSX.
