Welcome to the final and Part 4 of the blog series on NSX Application Platform Automation Appliance (NAPP-AA) where we demonstrate NAPP Scale-Out. NAPP scale-out is supported only on advanced form factor and also requires the TKGS guest cluster to be scaled out with the appropriate number of worker nodes. As stated earlier, NSX Automation Appliance only deploys NAPP in the advanced form factor. NAPP automation appliance can scale out the TKGS guest cluster which it deployed, with additional worker nodes. However, NAPP scale out need to be performed from the NSX Application ..read more

VLAN Filtering in NSX Transport Zones

If you aren’t aware, NSX 4.1.1 introduced VLAN filtering capability on the VLAN Transport zones. This feature is important especially when you don’t want your NSX tenants to create segments on VLANs that are meant for infrastructure traffic. Please check out the release notes here: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-NSX/4.1.1/rn/vmware-nsx-411-release-notes/index.html VLAN filtering can also be done on the overlay transport zones to control the VLANs used for guest VLAN tagging (VGT) on the overlay segments, but I think this functionality already existed. In this article, we will discuss both ..read more

Welcome to Part 3 of the blog series on NSX Multitenancy. In this article, we will discuss NSX Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) that is an extension to NSX projects (discussed in Part 2) by offering an additional management plane isolation within the context of an NSX project. Using VPCs, we segment the management plane even further and we offer the consumers (who are mainly application owners or developers), a simplified self-service portal where they can consume the networking and security objects independently in their own private space. If you were not following along, please check out the p ..read more

NSX Multitenancy – Part 1 – Introduction & Multitenancy Models
VxPlanet
by HariKrishnan
8M ago
NSX introduced multitenancy through the concept of projects in version 4.0.1 (API only). Multitenancy was enhanced with project UI options in NSX 4.1 and with Virtual Private Clouds (VPCs) in NSX 4.1.1. NSX projects are a way to isolate networking and security objects across tenants within the same NSX deployment. Prior to projects, we dealt with networking and security configurations in the default space which was owned by the NSX Enterprise Administrator. Each tenant (project) has RBAC policies enforced by the Enterprise administrator from the default space, and as such each project has one ..read more
