Announcing the Enterprise+ feature set for ReSTNSX. Enterprise+ includes licenses for NSX-v to T migration. Instead of purchasing separate Migration Assistance Tool (MAT) licenses separately, customers can combine both licenses under an Enterprise+ license.
ReSTNSX is feature-rich platform for deployment and Day 2 operations of VMware's NSX solution. From unified management of multiple NSX domains to bulk object creation, ReSTNSX offers tremendous value to Networking, Security and Virtualization teams alike.
The solution is delivered as a virtual appliance with a licensing model aligned to VMware's NSX per CPU model. For every VMware NSX license active in NSX Manager, there must be a corresponding ReSTNSX license of either Enterprise or Enterprise+. Both license tiers are available as Perpetual or Subscription-based.
In addition to product licensing, SKU or Statement-of-Work (SoW) based Professional Services are available for installation, configuration and training of ReSTNSX. Professional Services hours can also be applied towards a SoW for converting legacy firewall rulesets to NSX.

ReSTNSX is available as either Enterprise or Enterprise+ editions that can be licensed as perpetual or an annual subscription. Both editions include the base appliance and an optional support & upgrade contract that provides technical support and software upgrades for the duration of the term.
With perpetual, the customer owns the licenses indefinitely and can add feature licenses plus support contracts . In contrast, a subscription model entitles a customer to all the features of a given edition (Standard, Enterprise) for the duration of the contract. The benefits of the ReSTNSX subscription model is that it enables a more predictable pay-as-you-grow licensing structure with the convenience of a single SKU for ordering.
ReSTNSX Enterprise is an all-in-one license part number that provides all features with no restrictions. This includes features such as vRNI Planner, ASA Planner and all the native automation and troubleshooting capabilities of ReSTNSX
ReSTNSX is delivered as a virtual appliance for easy installation and configuration. For existing NSX environments where ReSTNSX is being added, a typical deployment times range from 3 to 8 hours. These deployments can be self-deployed or customers can leverage our professional services team. Professional Services may be ordered using a single SKU that includes installation, configuration and user training.

In addition to our standard deployment services, ReSTNSX offers firewall ruleset migration services. These services range from extracting existing firewall rulesets via REST API methods to CSV export. Our team has experience with most firewall vendor conversions, including - Cisco ASA, Juniper, Checkpoint and NSX-v. With both methods, the ReSTNSX team extracts the existing configurations and processes them using a proprietary tool for optimizing (rule hit analysis, de-dupes) and converting to ReSTNSX format for deployment. For more information, please refer to the following data sheet or contact us to scope out an engagement.
An existing NSX customer is interested in adding ReSTNSX to their environment to help automate provisioning tasks of their deployment. The environment consists of 100 licenses of VMware's NSX solution where they support multiple tenants and also require per-tenant administration capabilities. This customer also has a lab environment consisting of 20 NSX single socket nodes that they would like to manage via ReSTNSX.
This customer leverages a CAPEX model for acquisition and would like to purchase perpetual licenses and a support contract that will cover technical support and future upgrades for a 3 year term.
The following configuration are valid and can be presented to their resale partner of choice for quoting.
ReSTNSX Enterprise provides a single license SKU for all ReSTNSX features - including the requested Multi-Tenant add-on license. As new features such as the Mover Tool are released, this customer would be entitled to the additional capabilities.

Similar to the previous example where the customer's environment consists of 100 production / 20 lab licenses of VMware's NSX solution with multi-tenancy, the customer has decided to explore an Enterprise subscription model for ReSTNSX. This approach allows the customer leverage OPEX funds but also take advantage of all the features of ReSTNSX at a lower price point than perpetual + a-la-carte license add-ons.
ReSTNSX subscriptions provide the base appliance, support and licenses (Standard or Enterprise) in a single SKU spread across an annual term. Similar to the Perpetual license option, subscriptions are also priced per-cpu to match the NSX environment but expire after the annual term unless renewed.
Note: Subscriptions are delivered in packs of 10. Qty 1 of a subscription = Qty 10 ReSTNSX CPU licenses

A resale partner of VMware's NSX product would like to acquire ReSTNSX for their NSX customer-facing professional service engagements. These engagements often require custom scripting for multiple API calls for creating bulk items such as security tags and groups. The software will be used soley by the partner for multiple clients with ownership never being transferred to the end customer (NFR - Not-for-Resale). They are also interested in a support contract that will cover technical support and future upgrades for a 3 year term. Note: The NFR license for partners includes the Multi-Tenant Administration feature set. Based upon this information, the following configuration would be quoted:
