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 four … Continue reading NSX-V to NSX-T Migration using Layer 2 Bridging
