VMware vRA + NSX Technical Deep-dive Presentation

VMware vRealize Automation (vRA) is the powerful automation engine within VMware’s vRealize Cloud Management Platform (CMP). vRA is designed to automate not just applications and service delivery, but also the infrastructure ecosystem around them, resulting in an app-centric authoring, provisioning and lifecycle management solution. A critical component of that infrastructure is a Networking and Security strategy that can meet the demands of new and existing applications while protecting enterprises against a modern threat.

While vRA has provided enhanced networking and security integration in the form of NSX in the past, the latest release, vRA 7.x, ups the ante to make building, consuming, and lifecycle managing application-centric network services a core function of service delivery.

This presentation is a technical overview of the integration, services and capabilities delivered with vRA 7 + NSX.
NOTE: This video is roughly 50 minutes in length so it would be worth blocking out some time to watch it!
