NSX-T 3.0 Design Suggestion

This post was originally published on this site

Hello Experts, Here is the point of discussion.


Customer wants to segregate the NS and EW traffic in NSX-T env and had enough 10 gig pnics available. We had proposed following.


2 for – VDS (mgmnt,vmotion)

2 for – NVDS1 – for workload VM’s

2 for – NVDS2 – for DMZ workload ….


But in this design, Edge VM will sit on Host NVDS and will consume 2 nics for overlay as well as N-S.


If we design it as per the customer requirement, its like going back to old 2.4 edge VM design where Edge had multiple nvds and was possible to assign individual pnics for e-w and n-s using named teaming policy. This design is still possible in 2.5 & 3.0, however pnics assigned to N-S traffic on the host where there is no edge VM, will be ideal until an edge vm moves to that host..? so what is the point in keeping pnics unused..?


Comments please.
