What's Cool This Year In Software-Defined Networking? Here Are 10 Tools

VMware NSX-T

VMware this year made its NSX-T offering -- built primarily for non-vSphere environments -- generally available. Rajiv Ramaswami, COO, products and cloud services for VMware, told CRN that the new NSX-T product enables networking and security management for new application frameworks and architectures that have diverse endpoints and technology stacks.

NSX-T is hypervisor-agnostic and has expanded KVM and VMware Photon container support, as well as support for new application frameworks including Container Networking Interface. VMware said the product's road map will eventually focus on container environments that are based on open-source software.
