NSX Multisite routing (diagram options)

NSX Multisite can be designed (and implemented) in different ways. In this article I have created diagrams for the most common enterprise designs. Take a look at the six different multisite design/implementation scenarios below.

Here are some starting points that I have taken into account:

  • All of the Multisite Scenarios below will NOT have any stretched VLANS configured between the sites.
  • The two sites will not have a Round Trip Delay (RTT) Latency of more than 10 milliseconds.
  • Scenario 1 - 3 will be based on vSphere Stretched Clusters.
    • MULTISITE SCENARIO #1: Stretched vSphere Clusters | Non stretched Edge Transport Node Clusters | 2 x T0 and 2 x T1
    • MULTISITE SCENARIO #2: Stretched vSphere Clusters | Stretched Edge Transport Node Clusters | 1 x T0 and 1 x T1
    • MULTISITE SCENARIO #3: Stretched vSphere Clusters | Stretched Edge Transport Node Clusters | 1 x T0 and 2 x T1
MULTISITE SCENARIO #1 MULTISITE SCENARIO #2 MULTISITE SCENARIO #3 MULTISITE SCENARIO #4 MULTISITE SCENARIO #5 MULTISITE SCENARIO #6
