  • 1.  NSX-T Mulltilocation Design Guide Clarification

    Posted Jul 05, 2021 10:09 AM

    On design guide on page 22 figure 3-7 ( already attached) there is statement:

    Segments “Blue” and “Green” are available to all locations.

    The East/West routing is offered in a distributed fashion locally through the Tier-0 and Tier-1 Distributed Routers.
    The North/South routing is offered by Tier-0 that are active in one location, “Blue” in Location-A and “Green” in Location-C

    What does it mean?
    How i understand green segments goes to public(internet) via T0 on Location-C, Blue segments go to public(internet) via T0 that resides on Location-A. Is it true?

    Your understanding is correct

    North-South:

    Green segments go to public (internet) via T0 on Location-C, Blue segments go to public (internet) via T0 that resides on Location-A

    And this wherever location the Blue or Green VMs are.

    East-West:

    The router attached to the Segment is distributed.

    So for instance

    • The Location-B_VM_Blue_TopSegment talking to the Location-B_VM_Blue_BottomSegment will have its L3 traffic in Location-B only
    • The Location-A_VM_Green_TopSegment talking to the Location-B_VM_Green_BottomSegment will have its L3 traffic between Location-A and Location-B (not Location-C)
