VMware NSX is flexible with regard to the underlying network fabric. Lets look at the requirements for running VMware NSX over different physical network environments, and the benefits it provides.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • describe common physical network topologies, including layer 2 fabric, multi-tier, and leaf-spine
    describe trends in physical networks
    describe the purpose of a leaf node and a spine node in leaf-spine architecture
    identify virtual network topologies, including enterprise, service provider multi-tenant, and multi-tenant scalable
    describe the benefits of a multi-instance TCP/IP stack
    describe the challenges of a layer 2 fabric topology
    describe the challenges of a multi-tier topology
    describe the challenges of a leaf-spine topology
    differentiate between physical and virtual QoS implementation
    differentiate between single and multiple vSphere Distributed Switch (vDS) Distributed Logical Router implementations
  • differentiate between NSX Edge High Availability and Scale-out NSX Edge High Availability implementations
    differentiate between collapsed and separate vSphere cluster topologies
    differentiate between layer 3 and converged cluster infrastructures
    identify VMware NSX management and edge cluster requirements
    describe minimum and optimal physical infrastructure requirements for a VMware NSX implementation
    describe how different traffic types are handled in a physical infrastructure
    determine use cases for available virtual architectures
    differentiate between virtual and physical switch connection methods
    describe VMkernel networking recommendations
    describe challenges of physical networks and requirements for VMware NSX
