Data Center & Cloud Infrastructure

VMware vSphere is VMware’s suite of virtualization products. VMware vSphere, known as VMware Infrastructure prior to 2009, includes ESXi, vCenter Server, vSphere Client, vMotion and more. As of April 2017, the most current version is vSphere 6.5, which is available in three editions: Standard, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus.

Networking & Security

VMware NSX is a virtual networking and security software offering created when VMware acquired Nicera in 2012. NSX allows an admin to virtualize network components, enabling them to develop, deploy and configure virtual networks and switches through software rather than hardware. A software layer sits on top of the hypervisor to allow an administrator to divide a physical network into multiple virtual networks.

VMware vRealize Network Insight is a network operations management tool that enables an admin to plan microsegmentation and check on the health of VMware NSX. VRealize Network Insight relies on technology from VMware’s acquisition of Arkin in 2016. VRealize Network Insight collects information from the NSX Manager; it also displays errors in its user interface, which helps troubleshoot an NSX environment.

SDDC Platform

VMware Cloud Foundation is an integrated software stack that bundles vSphere, VMware Virtual SAN (vSAN) and VMware NSX into a single platform through the SDDC Manager. An admin can deploy the bundle on-premises as a private cloud or run it as a service within a public cloud. An administrator can provision an application immediately without having to wait for network or storage.

Storage & Availability

VMware vSAN is a software-based storage feature that is built into the ESXi hypervisor and integrated with vSphere; it pools disk space from multiple ESXi hosts and provisions it via smart policies, such as protection limits, thin provisioning and erasure coding
