Welcome to VMware Networking and Security Tech Zone

Welcome to VMware Networking & Security Tech Zone, your fastest path to understanding, evaluating and deploying the VMware NSX portfolio. Tech Zone's mission is to provide insightful and accurate guidance on VMware Networking and Security solutions. Our goal is to consolidate all interconnected pieces of technical content into one single platform. 

The Big Picture

Tech Zone fits neatly into the larger picture of resources at VMware. By focusing on practical product guidance, Tech Zone is able to complement traditional VMware NSX resources.

Our Content

At Tech Zone, we've made it our mission to provide you with the resources you need, wherever you are in your networking and security journey. For this reason, some content on Tech Zone is extremely technical and intended for networking and security gurus. Other content is more general and intended for all to enjoy.

6 Basic Questions

As part of our content strategy, Tech Zone resources are divvied up to answer half a dozen basic questions that scale from beginner to expert. No matter what level of technical expertise you have with VMware NSX products, the resources associated with these questions will point you in the right direction.

5 Content Types

The content on Tech Zone comes in five basic formats:

  • Blogs
  • Guides
  • Videos
  • Pages
  • Tools

The following diagram explains which resources answer your fundamental questions, and which format each resource takes.
