I wrote a blog post in the VMware official blog about a demo I recorded called “Dynamically enforcing Security On a Hot Cloned SQL Server With VMware NSX“.
A bit long of a title but captures the essence of the demo perfectly. You can see the demo as well here:
I got a question from a colleague of mine with has a very keen eye:
“I just saw the great video you made, at 0:50 second of the demo we can see the rules for the prod app
What is the meaning of rule 6? If the source is the datacenter and is broader than the App Server in rule 5, and the rule allows for ANY service, doesn’t it make rule 5 irrelevant? “
This is a great observation by Manuel with a very simple explanation which demonstrates perfectly the power of VMware NSX, can you figure out the answer?
Rule 6 makes sense, only if you know your NSX
