Recently I was one of the presenters at the Sacramento VMUG. The topic of the night was Networking and VMware NSX. At the end of my time, I promised a list of web links to VMware NSX resources. Here we go:
VMware Walkthrough for NSX: http://featurewalkthrough.vmware.com/NSX/ – If you are not familiar with the VMware Walkthroughs; this is essentially a guided tour of the products and features.
VMware Hands-on Labs for NSX: http://blogs.vmware.com/networkvirtualization/2014/09/new-vmworld-2014-hands-labs-vmware-nsx-goodness.html – This is an introductory Blog Post that describes each of the new labs from VMworld 2014.

I am certain there are many more blogs/links for NSX. If you have a favorite that I haven’t included, leave a comment and I will add them.
Another new resource that was released on the 1st of November was Pluralsight’s NSX course with Jason Nash. Although that is a paid service I thought it was worth mentioning.
Thanks Gowan. I have added the link and will definitely check it out for myself.
Hi Dennis, thank you for your post and the link you shared with us, just one questions have you ever discussed/heard about integration with Cumulus Networks
