Quick view on NSX Multi-Tenancy

 NSX-T brings an evaluation into SDN space whether it's networking, security or even monitoring the environment. During its long journey starting from acquiring this product from Nicira Network by VMware to date, we have seen several enhancements evolving into this product. From NSX-V to NSX-T and now rebranded to NSX starting from version 4. x this product is all set on the customer expectation whether it's a startup or a multi-billion Fortune 500 organization. In this article, we will discuss one of NSX new offerings in NSX ver 4.1 which is NSX Project or multi-site tenancy. Before starting into this let's draft a hypothetical or fictitious scenario... In an organization called Virtualvmx, there were 3 tenancies: Alpha Beta Gama All the above 3 tenants have some compliance guidelines for their organization where one tenant should not expose its networking component inside NSX with other tenants like Layer 2 networking which includes segment, security policies, T1 routers

Introducing VMware vSAN 8.0: New Features and Enhancements Unveiled

 Introduction: VMware vSAN 8.0 brings forth a range of exciting features and enhancements, aiming to revolutionize storage architecture and elevate performance.  Let's explore the key highlights of this major release and discover how it improves scalability, usability, and overall efficiency. 1) vSAN Express Storage Architecture (ESA): VMware introduces vSAN Express Storage Architecture (ESA) as an alternative to the original storage architecture (OSA). ESA presents a cost-effective and scalable solution specifically designed for edge and remote deployments.  It employs a streamlined, single-tier architecture, where all devices contribute to storage capacity. This eliminates the need for disk groups with caching devices, simplifying deployment and reducing costs. 2)Native Snapshots with Minimal Performance Impact: vSAN ESA now offers native snapshots that have minimal impact on virtual machine (VM) performance, even with deep snapshot chains. These snapshots seamlessly integrate wi

Tunnel Endpoints

Tunnel endpoints are essential in VMware NSX-T  for managing network connectivity across different environments. They handle the encapsulation and decapsulation of network traffic as it moves between overlay and underlay networks. Here are the key aspects of tunnel endpoints in NSX-T. Its uses in both East-West as well as North-South traffic communication. Geneve Tunneling Protocol : NSX-T uses the Geneve tunneling protocol for encapsulating overlay traffic. Geneve offers a flexible and extensible framework, ensuring efficient and secure communication among virtual machines (VMs) and NSX-T logical networks. Tunnel Endpoint (TEP) IP Addresses: Each hypervisor host or NSX-T Edge node is assigned a unique TEP IP address as its tunnel endpoint. These addresses are used for encapsulating and decapsulating overlay traffic between different endpoints. Overlay Transport Zone (OTZ) : An Overlay Transport Zone defines the scope of network communication within an overlay infrastructure. TEP IP ad
