This demo shows a NSX micro segmentation example for a 3-tier SAP system. The demo starts in vRealize Operations where the Blue Medora SAP Management Pack has been configured to monitor the SAP system. Data collection fails due to activation of the NSX firewall. The NSX configuration is shown and tested and the services are configured to re-establish communication between vROps and the SAP system.
One of the consequences of running antivirus software is that operating system performance can suffer. There is a balance between an acceptable level of security and an acceptable level of performance, and this varies from one environment to the next. This whitepaper discusses the use of antivirus software in a VMware Horizon 7 environment, and changes that can be made to improve performance without unduly compromising system security. VMware products discussed are View in Horizon 7, App Volumes, ThinApp, and User Environment Manager.
