Meet the VMware Service-defined Firewall: A new approach to firewalling

This post was originally published on this site —VMware has had front row seats to the digital transformation that has touched virtually every organization. We’ve been there (and helped drive!) the journey from monolithic applications hosted on a single server, to distributed apps running in VMs, to further decentralization in the form of cloud-native apps composed of microservices. Now, we’re watching the proliferation of public clouds, the up and coming space of serverless and the adoption of functions as a service as ways to build Read more […]

Not a small talk – how to provide data back to Cloud Assembly through Extensibility

This post was originally published on this site —Don’t be shy, admit it – you already used Cloud Automation Services and fell in love with it, didn’t you? One thing you could be wondering about is how to achieve the same level of extensibility as you do with vRA. Probably, you have already found out that you can provide the payload of a request to the SaaS-enabled vRO by using the inputProperties parameter. I guess you’ve been asking, ‘Well, can I have a sort of an outputProperties parameter to talk back to Cloud Assembly Read more […]

That all starts with improving the employee experience, which is the intersection of employee expectations, needs and wants. Prioritizing employee experience is Read more […]

Finding Outlier Behaviour with vRealize Network Insight

Finding Outlier Behaviour with vRealize Network Insight

This post was originally published on this site —vRealize Network Insight not only visualizes all network communication within your network and provides a wealth of information for troubleshooting, it can also help you to catch outlier behavior in virtual and physical servers using advanced analytic capabilities. If a certain VM breaks the pattern of its like-minded VMs, or if it starts showing network behavior that is outside its previous patterns, Network Insight can generate alerts for it. This post dives into the wonderful world of outlier Read more […]

Configuring VMs For Opaque Networks

Configuring VMs For Opaque Networks

This post was originally published on this site —PowerCLI has a new object to interact with, thanks to NSX-T! The Opaque Network managed object gives us the ability to interact with NSX-T provisioned logical switches as though they are port groups. Technically, it has been available for a couple releases of vSphere but the functionality was really improved here recently. Last year we released KB 65149 that included code to create a new function, named Set-NetworkAdapterOpaqueNetwork. This function could be used to assign an opaque network to a Read more […]
