Learn NSX  Day 2 : NSX Deployment Best Practice

Learn NSX  Day 2 : NSX Deployment Best Practice

This best practice page is more of a list of resources and starting points to collect information from

·         Start with the VMware NSX for VSphere Network Virtualization Design Guide
         VMware NSX Brownfield Deployment Guide
         Best practices from VMware World (Lostdomain.org) (Cluster Design, NSX Multi-tenancy,NSX Distributed Firewall, NSX Transport Zone & NSX Edge Services)
·         Deploying VMware NSX for vSphere and the Nutanix enterprise cloud platform (A downloadable document with Use Case scenarios)

The key technical feature for me was to

·         Deploy NSX Manager and NSX Controller to a Management Cluster and not the same clusters your other VMs are part of.
·         Use vSphere HA as NSX Manager is a virtual machine
