VMware’s NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. Reducing the complexity in a distributed environment of potentially thousands of objects and policies is critical to managing such a solution.
ReSTNSX is a quick and easy to use HTML5 GUI driven configuration engine for VMware NSX –v and –T customers who wish to automate, simplify and accelerate the deployment of policies, settings and bulk objects.
Use Cases for ReSTNSX
Instead of clicking through countless windows in vCenter and NSX Manager, ReSTNSX provides workflows for Security, Networking and Infrastructure components of NSX. In these workflows, you are easily able to create objects in bulk with a single click or import a list from CSV.
ReSTNSX can easily rollback single or multiple configuration changes through a click of a button.
ReSTNSX is the easy button for NSX provisioning. Rollout hundreds or thousands of objects and policies within minutes while dramatically reducing the learning curve of your IT Staff.
Since ReSTNSX lives outside of vCenter, it allows users to pre-build configurations “offline” without worrying about changing production settings until they are ready for rollout.
With ReSTNSX, Administrators are able to create isolated Tenant spaces with granular permissions for self administration while maintaining strict separation of management and traffic between tenants.
In many situations, custom API calls are required to access certain capabilities. ReSTNSX brings all the NSX features and power of custom REST API to their fingertips with no knowledge of coding through a easy to use graphical user interface.
With ReSTNSX, Administrators can manage hundreds of NSX Managers under a single interface that alleviates the need to login to each individually to manage.
