Join Bill Ferguson for an in-depth discussion in this video Services available on an Edge, part of Learning VMware NSX.
- When you create an Edge Services Gateway,…the application programming interface…creates a virtual machine.…But what can this virtual machine,…this Edge Services Gateway do?…Well, I'm going to show you.…So from the Web Client, we're going…to double-click on Networking and Security…and we're going to go back into Edges.…And this time, instead of going to…the Distributed Logical Router,…I'm going to click on Perimeter Gateway…which is an Edge Services Gateway.…This is actually a virtual machine that was created.…
If you went into the Management in Edge cluster,…you'd see it as a virtual machine.…But most of the configuration that you…want to do on this Edge is going to be…in this part of the GUI, in the Networking and Security.…So what can we configure?…Well, if we go to the Manage tab…and then the tab underneath it, Settings,…you can see that we have the general…Configuration of the Edge, whether it has…high availability, whether it's set up for load balancing,…what its DNS is, you can see all of…the different aspects of the Edge.…
VMware Certified Instructor Bill Ferguson covers the basics of NSX (including NSX components) and techniques for creating a software-defined data center. He shows how to configure a controller cluster, prepare hosts for VXLAN networking, and configure logical switches and distributed routers. Later in the course, Bill configures static and OSPF routing, load balancing, and a simple VPN, as well as high availability with NSX Edge. By the end of the training, viewers should be able to use NSX on top of their existing network resources to improve performance, deploy services, and increase security—without any additional hardware.
