Running VMware NSX on a Cisco ACI Fabric

NSX is underlay agnostic and customers have asking for how to get all the benefits of NSX while leveraging their existing ACI underlay?. You will see how NSX simplifies your underlay configuration while giving you the full benefits of network virtualization. This video also shows you how to have L2/L3 connectivity between physical and virtual workloads across your application tier. When Cisco and VMware started shipping software defined networking (SDN) platforms, the obvious thinking was that you would choose one or the other. If you chose VMware NSX, you would go down the software-only overlay path using your existing data center fabric or perhaps a third-party fabric infrastructure.


If you chose Cisco’s Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), you were choosing to forklift your existing fabric and adopt Cisco’s hybrid software and hardware approach to SDN. However, as both NSX and ACI matured, it’s become clear that each has advantages that can be better leveraged together, and disadvantages that can be mitigated if they are deployed together
