      We’ve had a change in next week’s program and we’re happy to welcome VMware’s Scott Martin to discuss network virtualization with NSX. NSX increases your business’s agility and security by decoupling the network from your hardware. Imagine provisioning multi-tier network architecture as you deploy virtual machines and being able to migrate the two together. With NSX you can provision, snapshot, migrate, destroy, and restore complex networks alongside your VM’s. Scott will bring us all the details and explain how you can protect your data center through micro-segmentation and isolation, all made possible by network virtualization. You won’t want to miss this!

      As a VMware Network and Security Staff Engineer, Scott is responsible for designing virtualized data center solutions for cloud, storage and compute architectures aligning customers’ business goals and challenges with technology solutions. He brings a wealth of real world experience in designing solutions for complex business issues with proven experience in key areas such as Cloud Computing, Network Virtualization, Data Center Design, Converged Storage, High Performance Computing, and Video Production networks.

      An industry veteran bringing over 20 years of experience, having held senior architect, engineering and support positions in a number of networking and security companies including: Brocade, Juniper, Force10, Cabletron, Riverstone Networks, Fortinet and Woven Systems.

      I am planning to attend! Great to see this being organized. Hope the virtualization topic implies PaaS (AKA cloud virtualization) as well.
