Rackspace Leverages VMWare NSX to Quickly Meet New PCI DSS Compliance Goals – Case Study

As the TAM for Rackspace, I was recently involved in a successful rollout of NSX in their environment where they were able to very quickly meet their new PCI DSS Compliance goals. The environment in this situation was comprised of over 100 vCenter instances spanning 8 datacenters with more than 1,000 machines for its back-end management and support infrastructure. The entire project from planning to full deployment took just eight weeks!

Many of our customers have the same goals in this area, so I hope their story can assist more of our customers to achieve their compliance goals.

One quote from Luke Huckaba, Principal Architect, sums up the story nicely: “We were able to isolate the PCI systems from the rest of the environment without having to re-IP anything or physically change any networking.”

The Challenge

  • Segregate environments to support PCI DSS 3.1 compliance.
  • Protect internal VMware vCenter deployments from customer systems.
  • Implement solution quickly without burdening network team.
