I first wrote this blog post about mult-site options and Cross-VC NSX design on the VMware NSX Network Virtualization Blog on July 22, 2016. The full blog post is provided below and can also be seen on the VMware NSX Network Virtualization Blog site. (more…)

One very exciting and strong use case for VMware NSX is advanced security. VMware NSX has some inherent security features and also allows for 3rd party security appliance integration. In this blog, I’ll briefly discuss the firewalling and micro-segmentation capabilities of VMware NSX-vSphere. (more…)
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.

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…)
