I recently learned about a really cool capability that is part of the NSX Easy Install feature that was initially introduced back in vSphere 7.0 Update 3, allowing administrators to easily deploy, configure and manage NSX directly from vCenter Server using the vSphere UI.
Here is a demo of this feature in action by fellow VMware colleague Vladimir Velikov, one of the Engineers who worked on the initial integration:
While reviewing the latest NSX 126.96.36.199 release notes, which adds support for vSphere 8 and DPU-based offloading, I found this little nugget at the very end of the What's New section under NSX vSphere UI Integration which states:
NSX Events Integrated in vCenter
🤩 whoa, the possibilities of this integration is immense, especially from an automation and event-driven standpoint ... In fact, this is something VMware Event Broker Appliance (VEBA) users have been asking for, a way to tap into the rich Alarms and Events provided by NSX, similiar to what vCenter Server provides out of the box with over 2000+ events.
