Static Routing and HA VIP Design – Edge Node on two VDS with four Physical NICs

This is the next post on a series of posts on NSX-T Edge Node design topologies.
In this blog post I will describe an Edge Node design topology hosting a Tier-0 Gateway with Static Routing with a HA VIP address configured.

With the Edge Node Virtual Appliances it is important to know on which vSphere Hosts the Edge Nodes are going to run, how many physical NICs are available and if the Edge Node is running on top of a VSS/VDS or N-VDS and how teaming is configured. In this design topology the Edge Nodes are running on hosts with two VDS with four Physical NICs.

NSX-T Uplink Profile

​An uplink profile defines policies for the links from hypervisor hosts to NSX-T logical switches or from NSX-T Edge nodes to top-of-rack switches.

​Uplink profiles allow you to consistently configure identical capabilities for network adapters across multiple hosts or nodes.
