Firefox as a really nice REST Client that works well for API testing.  If you want to start developing scripts using REST calls, this is a must have browser extension… https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/restclient/

I Can’t Download NSX?

VMware administrators for years have had access to download VMware technologies for evaluation. NSX is a little different and you will not find NSX on the download page. The reason for this is simple – The VMware Networking and Security Business Unit (NSBU) wants you to have a positive experience evaluating NSX technologies. As such, when you are ready to perform an evaluation, NSX systems engineers will assist you with access to the software and review the installation process with you. Actual installation is pretty straight forward so when you are ready, reach out to your favorite technology partner or core VMware sales team and they will put you in touch with the VMware NSBU. You can also use the link on the VMware website… http://www.vmware.com/company/contact_sales.html

vSphere NSX + Palo Alto Networks + Traffic Steering

Lots of goodness here with the integration of NSX with PAN… Using PAN’s unified interface Panorama deploying security policy into Physical Firewalls, Virtual Firewall Appliances, and into the vSphere NSX in kernel distributed Firewall, you have the best of all worlds…

One of the features of NSX with PAN is the ability to perform traffic steering from the NSX in kernal distributed firewall into the PAN Virtual Appliance to take advantage of the full capabilities of PAN. One gotcha I have seen and recommendation for you is traffic steering should be performed on an exception basis only. Let the NSX in kernel distributed firewall perform the heavy lifting (of firewall policy), and traffic steer only as needed.
