Nicira lists the following as the key components of the Network Virtualization Platform:

  • NVP Controller Cluster, a highly available distributed system that manages all the virtualized network components and connections.
  • Management software, an operations console.
  • RESTful API that integrates into a range of Cloud Management Systems (CMS), including a Quantum plug-in for OpenStack.

Nicira makes NVP available through a usage-based subscription model.
