Routing with NSX-T (part 2)

Routing with NSX-T (part 2)

So after the theory, it is time to create some routed networks. In order to do this, I created a design on what I want to accomplish. Part of the design is already in place, but for this blog I have created the part which is visible in the red square: So we already have a tier-0 gateway, connected to a tier-1 gateway, which is connected to several segments. The existing tier-1 is also used as a load balancer for…

Migrating from Standard Switch to NVDS with NSX-T 2.4

So, I have started developing my knowledge around NSX-T. No formal training, but I do have an environment, in which I can try out things. So I set up a basic NSX-T environment, consisting of one NSX Manager/Controller (starting with 2.4 this is a combined function, which can be clustered), and I created all the necessary stuff to make routing and switching available to virtual machines, by use of overlay networking. One other thing I wanted to try, is to…
