We will briefly look at network extensibility, a vast and a fairly complex topic that covers multiple vendors and deployment architectures. NSX has the ability to integrate with multiple vendors to provide a rich network feature set and also a single pane of glass to manage multiple physical network devices.
A third-party service provider (vendor) must register with the NSX manager using the specified login credentials. Once registered, we will deploy the partner service that allows NSX to offer the third-party service:
We have seen saw earlier, while creating security policies, the
Redirect to service option, which allows traffic to be redirected to these third-party services. You may also redirect traffic by adding firewall rules.
Partner security services tab in the firewall section:
During creation of the new rule, select
Redirect to allow for traffic redirection to the third-party vendor.
