Edge TEP IP on the same subnet as local hypervisor TEP

In this blog post I will describe a new feature where NSX-T 3.1 and later supports Inter TEP communication within the same host. Edge TEP IP can be on the same subnet and VLAN as the local hypervisor TEPs. This is beneficial for collapsed cluster topologies where Edge Node VMs are running on vSphere Hosts which are configured for NSX-T, as Transport Nodes. There are a lot of topologies where there is a collapsed Compute & Edge or Management & Edge Clusters where this feature is beneficial.


Dedicated Edge Cluster for Tier-0 and Tier-1 Edge Clusters for each Supervisor Cluster

Edge Cluster Design for vSphere with Tanzu

This blog post discusses five Edge Cluster designs for NSX-T and vSphere with Tanzu.


Dynamic Routing Design – Edge Node VM on one VDS with two 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 Dynamic Routing with BGP. This Edge Node topology supports Active/Active and Active/Standby Tier-0 design.

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 one VDS with two Physical NICs.


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.

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

I will be starting a series of posts on NSX-T Edge Node design topologies.
In this blog post I will start with a Edge Node design topology hosting a Tier-0 Gateway with Static Routing with a HA VIP address configured.
