VMware Cloud on AWS with NSX: Communicating with Native AWS Resources

VMware Cloud on AWS Communicating to Native AWS Resources
I’ve also posted this blog on the VMware Network Virtualization Blog site. If you haven’t already, please read my prior two blogs on VMware Cloud on AWS: VMware SDDC with NSX Expands to AWS and VMware Cloud on AWS – SDDCs Across Different AWS Regions; I’ve also posted these on the VMware Network Virtualization Blog. The prior blogs provide a good intro and information of some of the functionality and advantages of the service. In this blog post I expand the discussion to the advantages of VMware Cloud on AWS being able to communicate with native AWS resources. This is something that would be desired if you have native AWS EC2 instances you want VMware Cloud on AWS workloads to communicate with or if you want to leverage other native AWS services like AWS S3 VPC Endpoint or RDS.

VMware SDDC with NSX Expands to AWS

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

VMC on AWS VMware Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) technologies like vSphere ESXi, vCenter, vSAN, and NSX have been leveraged by thousands of customers globally to build reliable, flexible, agile, and highly available data center environments running thousands of workloads. I’ve also discussed prior how partners leverage VMware vSphere products and NSX to offer cloud environments/services to customers. In the VMworld Session NET1188BU: Disaster Recovery Solutions with NSX, I discussed how VMware Cloud Providers like iLand and IBM use NSX to provide cloud services like DRaaS. In 2016, VMware and AWS announced a strategic partnership, and, at VMworld this year, general availability of VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS) was announced; this new service is the focus of this post.

Dell VRF-lite & VMware NSX: Multitenancy Across Physical & Logical Networks

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Please checkout the white paper Dell Networking: Multitenancy Across Physical and Logical Environments with VRF-lite and VMware NSX. In the white paper I discuss use cases and how NVO and VRF-lite can be used together to deploy a consistent multitenant framework across logical and physical networks. In this short blog, I expand on the concept I presented in a prior blog, Multitenancy on Dell Networking Switches via VRF-lite, of how NVO and VRF-lite together can be used to deploy a consistent multitenant framework across logical and physical networks.

Dell Networking and VMware NSX: Bridging Between Logical & Physical Networks

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

In a prior blog, Creating Logical Networks and Services with VMware NSX on Dell Infrastructure, I discussed how easily VMs can be moved from physical (VLANs) to logical networks (Network Virtualization Overlays or NVOs). In practicality, there will almost always be some physical resources on a network that are not virtualized or remain on the physical network (VLANs). So how can VMs on a logical network communicate with resources on the physical network?

One method of communication can be done with the VMware NSX L3 Edge Services Router. However, if you want to just bridge between the logical and physical entities such as bridging between VXLAN to VLAN, the VMware NSX L2 Gateway can be used and this specific use case is discussed in more detail in this blog.

Creating Logical Networks and Services with VMware NSX on Dell Infrastructure

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

If you haven’t already, please checkout the Dell-VMware NSX Reference Architecture (RA) whitepaper. In the reference architecture I explain in detail the foundational NSX-vSphere components and also how Dell can provide a complete end-to-end infrastructure (servers, networking, storage) to support a robust SDN solution with NSX. In this blog, I will provide a quick overview, some insight on NSX, and examples of VMware NSX deployment with a complete end-to-end Dell infrastructure. (more…)
