I am looking for some suggestions if we can utilize the VPN connection in place of DirectConnect for the Bare Metal instances we will be using to host the Tie Breaker & Witness Servers?
Inline below on-prim server configuration. Any lead would be appreciated.
VSAN-APP-02 (Witness Server)
Guest OS: VMware ESXi 5.x
Compatibility: ESXi 5.5 (VM version 10)
DELLM-APP-02 – Tie Breaker Dell Storage Manager
Guest OS: Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (64-bit)
Compatibility: ESXi 6.0 (VM version 11)
Could you help us with more details on the architecture of this configuration. because in normal scenario we can use IPsec VPN with VMC on AWS with out any issue and establish the connection between onprem and VMC environment.
Thanks for your response!
•Customer is looking to setup a Witness Server and Tie Barker server on AWS.
•They run this infrastructure on prem(Physical DC) and they want to move that off on Prem.
You can go for either IPSec VPN or Direct connect as the connectivity option between witness appliance hosted in VMC and the onpremise ROBO or Stretched vSAN cluster. You've to ensure the latency (RTT) is less than the threshold (500MS for ROBO(2 nodes) and 200 ms for Stretched).
