Advancing from VMware NSX for vSphere to NSX-T
We introduced VMware NSX to the market over seven years ago. The platform has helped thousands of customers worldwide transform their network and bring the public cloud experience on-premises. This resulted in higher levels of automation and insight, which, in turn, saved time and money. However, as customers continued to drive new use cases and requirements, we wanted to ensure NSX was completely future-ready; hence NSX-T was born.
NSX-T is the next generation of network virtualization and security platform with a complete L2-L7 suite of services, delivering switching, routing, firewalling, analytics, and load balancing entirely in software. The platform enables a wide range of use-cases in intrinsic security, networking and security for multi-cloud and modern apps, and network automation.
New Features for RDS on VMware are Live!
In addition to Read Replicas for MySQL and PostgreSQL that went live end of June, Reserved Instances and Always-On availability feature for SQL Server are now live in GA for RDS on VMware. RDS on VMware is a fully managed database as a service, that automates administrative tasks for on-premise databases in VMware vSphere environments.
Customers can use Read Replica functionality for RDS on VMware to promote scalability and business durability by creating one or more read-only copies of a database instance within the same Custom Availability Zone (or in VMware’s terminology, a vSphere Cluster).
Updates made to the source database will be asynchronously copied to the Read Replica instances. Customers can further boost database durability by leveraging the Always-On Availability Groups feature for SQL Server which maximizes the availability of a set of user databases for an enterprise.
