Join Bill Ferguson for an in-depth discussion in this video Wrapping it up, part of Learning VMware NSX.
- Well, it's been fun…but it's time to wrap it all up.…And to wrap it all up, let's take a look at…where we started and then what we built,…piece by piece.…So we started off with a physical network,…looked kind of like this one.…We had a Management and Edge Cluster.…We had Compute Cluster A…and we had Compute Cluster B.…You would start off with whatever you have.…You or your customer, whoever you're advising in NSX.…You can tell them that they've got a vSphere environment…and they've got some equipment that connects it together.…
That's a good place to get started.…It's flexible.…And what we're going to do then,…is we're going to tie together that network…or those networks,…in this case, two different networks.…All right, and these aren't exactly…the same IP addresses of what we used.…It doesn't really matter.…They wouldn't be the same on your network either.…But what we're doing in this case…is we're tying together 192.168.150 network…to the 192.168.250 network,…two layer three's tied together…by a transport network which provides a new layer two.…
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.
