My Short Notes on NSX Part-1

Hi Guys,

I am back again with my NSX studies and I will share my short notes here, which will have no format but I believe this will help you.

What is an SDDC? 
# A DC platform that can be dynamically configured to meet the needs of any and all application workloads, all operating at a peak level of efficiency and automation.
# All infrastructure is virtualized and delivered as a service, and the control of this DC is entirely automated by software.
#  This solves the problem of services provisioning, maybe from 8-10 weeks to 30 mins and including firewall & Load Balancer etc…with 1 week around.
# Virtualize scale-up and scale-out application.
#  Zero downtime live migration over distance & cross boundaries.
#  Continuous availability for the production of virtual machines.
#  SDDC can be programmatically provisioned.
#  SDDC consists of three components majorly i.e Network, Storage & Compute to host the business-critical application.
#  SDDC vision is one cloud any application.
#  It provides Software-Defined Agility, seamless Hybridity, and intrinsic Security.
#  Also, other benefits of SDDC is because of server virtualization application are no longer tied with a single server or single geography. It reduces Capital and Operational Expenses.
