When we started planning a VMware NSX-focused podcast episode with Dmitri Kalintsev, I asked my readers what topics they’d like to see covered. Two comments that we really liked were “how do I get started with VMware NSX?” and “how do I troubleshoot this stuff?”
Dmitri is a seasoned networking engineer. His description of the journey from traditional service provider networking to building cloud infrastructure and finally embarking on the fully-virtualized bandwagon will definitely help you get started. He also spent a lot of time describing analogies he’s using to map NSX concepts to familiar networking concepts, and surprised us with packet capturing capabilities of NSX and vSphere distributed switch.
