On the 17th episode of Virtual Stack Podcast, I’m joined by Dumlu Timuralp (NSX Sr. Systems Engineer at VMware) and we take on the challenge of squeezing all the new features of NSX-T 2.4 into a 45-minute podcast!
NSX is VMware’s flagship software-defined data center networking and security solution. I was already surprised by the amount of new features and enhancements introduced in the last 1-1.5 years, but NSX-T 2.4 has totally exceeded every release that came before. On this episode, we try to summarise the new features and focus on the key areas; intelligent operations, security, networking and more.
Hope you enjoy the show. Feel free to share your feedback via Twitter (@emregirici), LinkedIn or virtualstack.tech.
