Doing a PoC of NSX and DS 9.5 and looking for anyone who has knowledge of them. Specifically your experience installing.
Watch Question

First off, what is NSX? Second, do you already have vShield enabled on your VMware ESXi environment? Trend's Deep Security requires it.


Hi: Thanx for the response. NSX is VMware's new virtualized networking product, slated for release in Q2-2014, probably make the big announcement next week at VMworld.
Yes, vShield is installed. The Deep Security 9.5 installation doesn't vary much from earlier versions. But now that the REST api is exposed, DS can make use of Vmware's Security Groups and tagging. NSX will no doubt become the standard for networking in virtual environments. I was looking for any one who went thru the pain of preparing the VMWare environment for DS 9.5. Lots of steps, lots of confusion (docs are not finalized yet). And lots of sessions at Vmworld in San Fran next week from the panel I will sit on (user experience) to deep dive technical sessions and labs.
