Not long ago, I wrote on designing a VMware Environment for a lab. See A Secure budget VMware LAB Environment – Step one – Design
Well, today I am going to show glimpse of another method of using your existing VMware environment, to build out multiple Network’s, while using the same pre existing VMware environment.
Here are some advantages I came up with over the previous design, or just about any physically segmented data center.
Nexus 1000v & VSG technology advantages:
- Allows virtual zone/role based access control, and resource allocation to define multiple networks/environments within a shared VMware Environment.
- Provides industry standard compliance, and simplified network management & operations within a virtual environment.
- Provides HA and Standard VMware features without the additional costs of a physically separated Environment.
- Enables Virtual Service Datapath (vPath), Network Analysis Module (NAM), Virtual Application Acceleration (vWAAS)
I would love some feedback, both from a design side, and presentation side.
