nsx-t federation stretched t0 gateway active & standby with locations primary & secondary

NSX-T Federation provides networking and security across multiple locations. With NSX Federation, you can manage multiple NSX-T Data Center environments with a single pane of glass view, create gateways and segments that span one or more locations, and configure and enforce firewall rules consistently across locations. NSX segments (overlay networks) can span multiple locations. Span of NSX segment … Continue reading nsx-t federation stretched t0 gateway active & standby with locations primary & secondary

Multiple N-VDS’ for Overlay on compute hosts

 Multiple N-VDS' for Overlay on compute hosts   NSX-T allows the creation of overlay networks which are independent of networks in physical/underlay network.     Along with the creation of overlay networks using NSX-T, micro segmentation/zero trust model of NSX is widely used to implement micro segmentation over NSX defined overlay networks as well as … Continue reading Multiple N-VDS’ for Overlay on compute hosts

NSX-T Federation – Active Active Data Centers

 NSX-T Federation - Active Active Data Centers   This blog covers NSX-T Federation feature which allows L2 stretching between Data Centers as well as supports micro segmentation for workloads based on security tags.   Earlier blogs covered NSX-T Federation with a single Tier 0 stretched Gateway. Here we explore how two Tier 0 Gateways can … Continue reading NSX-T Federation – Active Active Data Centers

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration using Layer 2 Bridging

NSX-V to NSX-T Migration using Layer 2 Bridging This blog will explore how we can migrate workloads which are on hosts prepared for NSX-V to hosts prepared for NSX-T using NSX-T Layer 2 Bridging.   Cluster Setup In the lab setup, four hosts ESXi 1 up to 4 are prepared for NSX-T and the remaining … Continue reading NSX-V to NSX-T Migration using Layer 2 Bridging

NSX-T Federation (Local Egress Using Tier 0 Active-Active, All Locations Primary)

NSX-T Federation Local Egress Using Tier 0 Active-Active, All Locations Primary This is a follow up to my earlier post on NSX-T Federation. This design uses Local Egress similar to the Local Egress feature in NSX-V. One has to note that if there are firewalls upstream to Tier 0 Gateway in both the locations, then … Continue reading NSX-T Federation (Local Egress Using Tier 0 Active-Active, All Locations Primary)

Federation in NSX-T

NSX-T Federation With the release of VMware NSX-T 3.0, there is now support for Federation in NSX-T With Federation: - You are able to scale NSX-T deployments by having NSX-T Manager cluster at each location, NSX-T manager at each location can possibly integrate with multiple vcenters present locally. - Each location has Local NSX-T Manager … Continue reading Federation in NSX-T

Connecting NSX-T Tier 0 Gateway to another Tier 0 Gateway

Connecting NSX-T Tier 0 Gateway to another Tier 0 Gateway Reference : NSX-T Design Guide A Tier 0 Gateway is typically required to connect to the physical network. A Tier 1 Gateway in NSX-T does not connect to the physical network directly. Segments to which workloads are attached are connected to Tier 1 Gateways. Tier … Continue reading Connecting NSX-T Tier 0 Gateway to another Tier 0 Gateway
