After looking into the blog post announcements on VMware HCX after VMworld I decided to get a bit more info what HCX actually is. This blog post will try to summarize what it is and what it can do. HCX is not a single product, but a combination of multiple VMware products which will be available is a single solution.

HCX is a also a cloud product which is delivered together with HCX Providers such as IBM or OVH.

So what can HCX Provide? It is essentially works as an extension between your existing infrastructure and a HCX Provider or a bridge. This allows for instance use of

  • Disaster Recovery
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Migration to newer platforms

On the HCX provider side we have a VMware Cloud Foundation setup. Cloud Foundation is based off of  VMware vSphere, vSAN, NSX, and SDDC Manager, where the last part automates and orchestrates the entire deployment process on the providers end. Using NSX on the providers end opens up for a new way to do software-defined network where all traffic is wrapped into VXLAN traffic. On the client’s or customers end we only need to deploy a single virtual machine (which is the HCX Client) this runs on your existing VMware infrastructure. The HCX client will be backwards compatible with as old versions ESX 5.1, and allow for management from the existing VMware console.
