The goal of this design guide is to outline several NSX solutions available for multi-site data center connectivity before digging deeper into the details of the Cross-VC NSX multi-site solution. Learn how Cross-VC NSX enables logical networking and security across multiple vCenter domains/sites and how it provides enhanced solutions for specific use cases. No longer is logical networking and security constrained to a single vCenter domain. Cross-VC NSX use cases, architecture, functionality, deployment models, design, and failure/recovery scenarios are discussed in detail.
This document is targeted toward virtualization and network architects interested in deploying VMware® NSX Network virtualization solution in a vSphere environment.
The design guide addresses the following topics:
Traditional Multi-site Challenges
Why VMware NSX for Multi-site Data Center Solutions
NSX Multi-site Solution
- Use Cases
- Architecture and Functionality
- Deployment Models
- Design Guidance
- Failure/Recovery scenarios
