    In this edition the guide analyzes design and deployment considerations in the following scenarios:

    3. Deploying NSX as Greenfield and migrating legacy applications

     

    revision history:

    1.1 version was also moved in the official VMware Corporate Template

    1.2 clarifies a comment about having separate Control VMs for Bridging and Routing: a Logical Switch can only be attached to a single Control VM so if distributed routing and bridging are both needed for a group of LS, bridging will happen on the hypervisor where the DLR control VM resides (no scale out possible in that case.)

     

    Feedback and Comments to the Authors are highly appreciated.
