Connecting a VPN between AWS and VMware NSX

Connecting a VPN between AWS and VMware NSX – VMGuru

Connecting a VPN between AWS and VMware NSX

Amazon Web Services has a few ways of giving you connectivity: internet, Direct Connect (a physical line) and VPN. While AWS has a ton of examples for firewall/VPN vendors, there is none for connecting with NSX. I needed to connect a NSX network with AWS for a proof of concept and had to figure out how to configure AWS and what settings to use on the NSX Edge VPN. Behold, the fruits of my labor!

Two vCPU NSX controller for lab environment

Two vCPU NSX controller for lab environment -VMGuru

Two vCPU NSX controller for lab environment

When installing NSX in a environment, you will at some point need to deploy NSX controllers. By default these controllers are equiped with four vCPU’s, which is fine for a production environment. Butif you want to play around withNSX in a lab environment like I wanted to, then you might not have the hardware (in my case 1 CPU, 2 cores) to support those four vCPU’s. In this article I will describe how I managed to deploy a two vCPU NSX controller for lab environment. Before we start I need to…Read More

vrni-1

 

vRealize Network Insight (vRNI) is the paid full version of the product, vRealize Network Assessment (VNA) is only the report/preview portion of the product, which takes 30-minutes to install.  It takes more time to install the full-product.  VNA only needs to connect to the vCenter.  vRNI, in addition to the vCenter, you also need to connect it the hardware, firewalls, etc.

REQUIREMENTS:  Must have (vDS) Virtual Distributed Switches installed in your vSphere environment  (Available in – vSphere ENT+, vSOM ENT+, & NSX Licensing)

vRealize Network Insight:  Transforms operations for NSX based on SDDC across your virtual, physical, and cloud.

  • Model security groups and distributed firewall rules. 
    • Comprehensive net flow assessment and analysis to model security groups and firewall rules
    • Recommendations to make micro-segmentation easier to deploy
    • Continuously monitor and audit compliance postures over time
  • 360-degree visibility and analytics virtual & physical network
    • Virtual and physical network topology mapping.
    • Performance Optimization across Overlay and Underlay
    • Log Analytics (with vRealize Log Insight for NSX, included with all NSX licenses)
  • Natural language search capabilities and Offers Best Practices, Health and Availability of NSX Deployment
    • Intuitive UI, Natural language search to quickly pinpoint issues
    • Log Analytics for troubleshooting
    • Best practice compliance checking (such as configuration errors in mismatch segment ID, IPset definitions, etc.)

Virtual Network Assessment (VNA):  Is a free assessment that analyzes the traffic pattern in your data center.  In 24 hours it will provide a pdf report that summarizes.

  • Insights on your security risk (amount of East-West traffic) in your environment
  • A preview of actionable micro-segmentation recommendations
  • Opportunities to optimize your network
