VMware NSX 6.2.3 for vShield Endpoint

Image
VMware announced the release of NSX 6.2.3 with the release notes.  So what is unusual of this release you might ask.  Well other than feature and functions or bug fixes, this also something on licensing.

So what on licensing you might ask other than the previous announcement on having Standard, Advanced and Enterprise editions of NSX.

Finally moving forward, vCNS Manager which has always been the key function for vShield Endpoint for AV offloading function is been replaced by NSX in this release.

Looking the release notes:
"Change in default license & evaluation key distribution: default license upon install is "NSX for vShield Endpoint", which enables use of NSX for deploying and managing vShield Endpoint for anti-virus offload capability only. Evaluation license keys can be requested through VMware sales."

This means default installation of NSX will be enabled with vShield Endpoint function just like vCNS Manager which is ending its support soon.

So are you entitle…
