"This is the most scalable product of its type.""NSX's stand-out function is the distributed firewall. The firewall system is just top-notch, and I haven't seen another solution like it.""This is a good firewall and overall it is rich in features.""Provides protection for virtual machines.""One of the big improvements between the NSX-V and NSX-T is that in NSX-T you are no longer dependent on V-Center anymore.""I have found the solution to be stable.""It's a beneficial tool.""Over the last two years, they've enhanced a lot, especially in regard to integration with OpenStack."

Cons
"Security is an area that could use some work."

More Nuage Networks Cons →

"NSX could better integrate with open-source products. Of course, it integrates with some, but I know many people are uncomfortable deploying NSX with certain open-source solutions, such as Radar.""One drawback is this solution requires a lot of other products in the VMware ecosystem to have a full end-to-end operation orchestration monitoring. You have to buy a lot of add-ons to fully utilize the functionality.""Everybody needs a network to connect to, and VMware doesn't readily provide one.""There are always issues integrating with Cisco.""The training costs a minimum of $3,000, which is expensive and should be reduced.""The technical support could use some improvement.""Occasionally the licensing is not very clear. They should make it easier to understand.""There are sometimes mismatch in the control, the details and what you actually see on the transport note."

  • "It is an expensive product, but cheaper than some competing solutions."
  • "The price of this product is too high."
  • "This solution requires a licence."
  • "VMware NSX is expensive and everything is licensed. We have to pay for each individual feature."

  • "I was not involved in the purchase of the solution but I hear it is on the expensive side."
  • "There is a license required for this solution, we pay annually."
