Case Study Maximizing Efficiency and Security with VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer: The EPFL Advantage

École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), a leading technical university in Switzerland, has significantly transformed its IT infrastructure with VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (NSX ALB). The university’s Central IT team faced challenges related to scalability, proximity to virtual machines, and Kubernetes cluster integration before adopting NSX ALB.

With NSX ALB, EPFL achieved remarkable improvements in resource management, performance, and operational efficiency. The integration of NSX ALB with VMware’s product ecosystem, including vSphere and NSX-T, provided enhanced security and automation. EPFL also benefited from improved visibility and troubleshooting capabilities, reducing response time and enhancing transparency.

In this NSX ALB case study, you’ll learn the following:

  • Challenges encountered by EPFL’s Central IT team prior to implementing VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (NSX ALB).
  • Benefits and improvements brought about by the adoption of NSX ALB in enhancing EPFL’s IT infrastructure and operations.
  • EPFL’s future plans and priorities for their IT infrastructure, particularly focusing on NSX ALB and its integration with VMware’s product ecosystem.
