Technical 301 (DEMO) – vRealize Network Insight (vRNI) 3.2 – Video

In this session, I provide a DEMO of vRealize Network Insight or (vRNI) 3.2. I run through the entire interface and provide an overview of its capabilities and features. Some of the capabilities I show are related to Planning Security, Path Flows, Global Searching, Visual Topology, and much more!

vRealize Network Insight delivers intelligent operations for software-defined networking and security. It helps optimize network performance and availability with visibility and analytics across virtual and physical networks. It provides planning and recommendations for implementing micro-segmentation security, plus operational views to quickly and confidently manage and scale VMware NSX deployment.

NSX and Micro-segmentation

NSX and Micro-segmentation

NSX and Micro-segmentation

In this video I will go over the basic concept of micro segmentation within the datacenter. micro segmentation is a key feature of NSX and a common use case for customers as it allows distinct isolation between servers and their east / west traffic. This is not easily accomplished with traditional hardware firewalls, using NSX creating segmentation rules is simplified and manageable.

vRealize Network Insight (vRNI) is the paid full version of the product, vRealize Network Assessment (VNA) is only the report/preview portion of the product, which takes 30-minutes to install.  It takes more time to install the full-product.  VNA only needs to connect to the vCenter.  vRNI, in addition to the vCenter, you also need to connect it the hardware, firewalls, etc.

REQUIREMENTS:  Must have (vDS) Virtual Distributed Switches installed in your vSphere environment  (Available in – vSphere ENT+, vSOM ENT+, & NSX Licensing)

vRealize Network Insight:  Transforms operations for NSX based on SDDC across your virtual, physical, and cloud.

  • Model security groups and distributed firewall rules. 
    • Comprehensive net flow assessment and analysis to model security groups and firewall rules
    • Recommendations to make micro-segmentation easier to deploy
    • Continuously monitor and audit compliance postures over time
  • 360-degree visibility and analytics virtual & physical network
    • Virtual and physical network topology mapping.
    • Performance Optimization across Overlay and Underlay
    • Log Analytics (with vRealize Log Insight for NSX, included with all NSX licenses)
  • Natural language search capabilities and Offers Best Practices, Health and Availability of NSX Deployment
    • Intuitive UI, Natural language search to quickly pinpoint issues
    • Log Analytics for troubleshooting
    • Best practice compliance checking (such as configuration errors in mismatch segment ID, IPset definitions, etc.)
