NSX-T Manager Cluster External LB by NSX-T

Version 7

    NSX-T 2.4 enhanced its management plane with the support of NSX-T Manager Cluster.

    NSX-T Managers Cluster offer a built-in VIP for high-availability.

     

    But the usage of an external load balancer offers the following benefits:

    • Load spread across all NSX-T Managers
    • NSX-T Managers can be in different subnets
    • Faster failover

     

    NSX-T supports load balancing service, and the same NSX-T platform can be configured to load balance its NSX-T Managers Cluster.

     

    This document describes this configuration and is valid for NSX-T 2.4 and more recent releases (like NSX-T 2.5 and NSX-T 3.0).
