One question is frequently asked around Cisco ACI and VMware NSX: "Which one do we choose?" The harsh reality is that rarely will one solution address 100 percent of your needs. Flexibility is key into today's data center networks. To achieve that, it is not unusual to have a discussion of both technologies working together and complimenting each other. This briefing will discuss how you integrate the two solutions to meet your requirements.
