VMworld 2018 is around the corner and we have an exciting lineup of over 80+ breakout sessions, customer deployment stories and Hands-on Labs for you from the VMware NSX family!

For the tech nerds interested in deep-dives and deployment strategies, we have a list of  recommended “geek” NSX VMworld 2018 sessions to choose from.

  • Deep Dive into NSX Data Center Security for Clouds, Containers, and More [SAI1527BU]
    This technical session will focus on key security features and use cases for VMware NSX-T Data Center in a multi-hypervisor, heterogeneous workload environment (VMs, containers, bare metal), the architecture and implementation of NSX-T distributed firewalls and edge firewalls, and the grouping/policy model for NSX-T Data Center. You will also find out how VMware NSX Data Center extends a uniform security policy model to VMware NSX Cloud and VMware Cloud on AWS environments.
  • Securing Horizon and Citrix End-User Computing with NSX Data Center [SAI1851BU]
    Organizations deploying virtual desktop infrastructures are tasked with designing for security, networking, and network services for this infrastructure. This can be a complex design process and include multiple products to meet the requirements. When coupling VMware NSX Data Center with a VMware Horizon or Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop deployment, NSX Data Center can simplify and streamline all of the security, networking, and network services needed to suit either deployment type. In this session, you will learn the key aspects of a Horizon deployment and where NSX Data Center provides the industry-best platform for helping organizations address these needs in a simple manner.
  • Deploying NSX Data Center on a Cisco Infrastructure [NET1945BU]
    VMware NSX Data Center has proven its ability for deployment on any switch fabric. Customers have asked for simplification of application deployment on a Cisco infrastructure. VMware developed architectural guides for deploying an NSX Data Center platform on Cisco’s switching fabrics, including a Cisco ACI underlay. In this session, you will learn best practices for implementing a software-defined data center on any Cisco underlay. You will find out what is the required to set up Cisco ACI and steps to normalize ACI’s fabric for an NSX Data Center for VMware vSphere or VMware NSX-T Data Center deployment.
  • Kubernetes Container Networking with NSX-T Data Center Deep Dive [NET1677BU]
    Why do you need VMware NSX-T Data Center with Kubernetes (K8s) if there are so many free batteries-included network solutions for Kubernetes out there? Because the NSX-T Data Center integration with K8s solves problems you likely have already encountered, or will encounter soon, when deploying K8s into an existing enterprise data center, with all its physical firewalls, existing relational databases, and potentially even mainframes. In this session, you will get technical details of how the NSX-T Data Center integration with Kubernetes in Pivotal Container Service (PKS), OpenShift, and upstream Kubernetes is implemented. Get a deep dive into each identified problem statement, find out how the solution was implemented with NSX-T Data Center, and see a demo of each of the solutions live on stage using PKS with NSX-T Data Center.
  • NSX Cloud: Deployment Deep Dive and Architecture [NET1754BU]
    As businesses evolve their application delivery methods, new strategies are emerging that include moving them to one or more public cloud providers. This brings a new set of operational challenges to the cloud security and networking teams, such as providing consistent security posture, traffic visibility, and secure connectivity across on-premises cloud and native public clouds. In this session, you will learn about the advanced capabilities of VMware NSX Cloud and go over real-world deployment use cases that will help you design your hybrid cloud deployments.
  • Advanced NSX Services in VMware Cloud on AWS: Use Cases and Best Practices [NET2409BU]
    VMware Cloud on AWS brings VMware’s enterprise-class software-defined data center to the AWS Cloud, enabling customers to run production applications across private, public and hybrid cloud environments that are built on the VMware SDDC stack. In this session, you will learn about how VMware NSX advanced services (Hybrid Connectivity, Distributed Firewall, Service Insertion, Visibility and Monitoring) enable customers to fulfil the following use cases: dev/test workload, disaster recovery, and application migration. We will take existing VMware Cloud on AWS customer examples and walk through the deployments that fulfill these use-cases, and share best practices.
  • Logical Routing Deep Dive on NSX-T Data Center [NET1127BU]
    Take a deep dive into the VMware NSX-T Data Center multi-tier routing architecture. In this session, you will learn about distributed routing for E-W traffic and centralized routing for N-S traffic with packet walks, as well as how routing is completely distributed in a multi-tier topology. In addition, you will find out about the NSX-T Data Center Edge node architecture and get an overview of high-availability deployment options.
  • Next-Generation Reference Design with NSX-T Data Center: Part 1 [NET1561BU] and Part 2 [NET1561BU]
    This is the first of a two-part series on reference designs for NSX-T Data Center. In this session, you will learn design best practices for NSX-T Data Center components, including fabric topology and deployment considerations for control plane components (NSX Manager and Controller). We will introduce the NSX-T Data Center N-VDS and compute designs for ESXi and KVM. We will also discuss NSX Edge cluster components and distributed routing, including best practices for developing baseline designs. It is highly recommended to read the NSX-T design guide and attend other NSX-T sessions in order to get the most out of this session.
  • The Future of Networking and Security with VMware NSX [NET1285BU]
    Network virtualization with NSX is achieving widespread adoption. The majority of today’s deployments are in vSphere environments, but a more heterogeneous world is coming as organizations begin to embrace containers and native public clouds. NSX-T was created to address these challenges. This talk provides detailed insights into the architecture and capabilities of NSX-T. We’ll show how NSX-T addresses container workloads and integrates with frameworks like Kubernetes. We’ll also cover the multi-cloud networking and security capabilities that allow consistent networking policies across any cloud, public or private. Finally, we’ll look at how SD-WAN has become part of the NSX portfolio, enabling networking and security to be deployed from cloud to data center to edge. Prior knowledge of network virtualization required.
