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…)

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco

VMworld 2013 in San Francisco


I’ve been meaning to write this blog for some time now as VMworld 2013 ended in San Francisco in late August. However, as VMworld just eneded in Barcelona, Spain last week, I guess it’s still not too late. I have to say out of all the tech events/conferences I attend, VMworld 2013 is definitely one of the most informative and beneficial. With an agenda filled with back-to-back speaker sessions, hands-on-labs, discussions on the solutions exchange expo floor, networking opportunities, and informal after-hour events, VMworld has catapulted to a must-go-to event for those in the high tech industry of networking, systems, and Enterprise/Datacenter infrastructure.
