What is Flow?

Flow networking is a software-defined networking solution option tightly integrated into Nutanix AHV and Prism. Flow provides rich visualization, automation, and security for VMs running on AHV. Microsegmentation is a component of Flow networking that simplifies policy management. Using multiple Prism Central categories (logical groups), you can create a powerful distributed firewall that gives administrators an application-centric policy management tool for securing VM traffic.

Microsegmentation is disabled by default. Before we can configure and use application security policies, isolation environment policies, and quarantine policies, we must enable the feature.

The feature requires a Flow license. If we have not installed a Flow license, we can try the feature for a period of 60 days. After this period expires, we will be required to install the license to continue using the feature.
