    Hello,

    i heard that in NSX-T, we don't need vsphere essentially like NSX-NV

    so what will be the use cases of vSphere 6.7 or 7 without nsx-nv platform ?

    Thank you!!!

    regards,

    You mean NSX-V, there is no such thing as NSX-NV.

    NSX-T can indeed function with or without vSphere.

    This article may help you: NSX-T vs NSX-v – What Is the Difference?

    Not sure what you mean by your question on use cases though, can you elaborate or explain in more detail?

    Hello Scott,

    thank you for your reply..

    some are saying for learning NSX-T, knowing vSphere is not required thats why i am wondering then what vsphere will do if not required in NSX-T ?

    thank you..

    NSX-V was only used in vsphere enviornments, NSX-T can be used in others so its not 100% needed to use vsphere but doesn't mean you can't.

    What do you mean by “what vSphere will do”?

    Just because NSX-T can run without it doesn’t mean that vSphere has no future, or that the networking functions within vSphere serve no purpose.

    Hello Scott,

    Please dont mind about my question..

    i have no idea about vSphere capabilities at all. that's why i am trying to understand scope of vSphere 6.7 nothing else.

    Thank you !!!

    vSphere 6.7 still has a lot of networking capabilities regardless of any version of NSX: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/6.7/vsphere-esxi-vcenter-server-67-networking-guide.pdf
