PowerNSX allows you to query, create, and delete VMware NSX objects - from transport zones and logical switches to edge routers, BGP routing or distributed firewalls - with PowerShell.

In this section of the webinar Anthony Burke and Nick Bradford describe the basics of PowerNSX and usage guidelines, and demonstrate several real-life examples, from creating a VXLAN-backed port group to full-blown application infrastructure provisioning and automatic Visio diagramming.
