Overview NSX Advanced Load Balancer (a.k.a Avi) offers variety of advanced load balancing and application security features, one of which is WAF (Web Application Firewall) which allows security administrators to control traffic to and from web servers behind NSX ALB. This capability extends also to protect web servers hosted in containers, this is achieved by […]

Overview Backup and restore is the main building block in any organisation’s disaster recovery policy and since containerised workloads are no longer a short-lived workloads that are only running in a development environments, but actually became almost the standard for running production applications, it is now crucial¬† to design and implement a solid backup and […]

Overview In this blog post I am going to walk you through the configuration of HTTPS Layer 7 Ingress for Tanzu workloads using VMware NSX ALB (Avi) Kubernetes Operator (AKO). Ingress is a kubernetes resource which allows users to define Layer 7 routing rules and/or load balancing options for their HTTP/HTTPS backed services. Obviously HTTPS […]

Overview vSphere Availability zones were introduced in vSphere 8 to provide high availability for Tanzu Workloads across clusters. Clusters are mapped to zones and they do not have to be co-located in the same physical datacenter however they must be under the same logical datacenter construct with latency between sites not exceeding 100ms. This provides […]

Overview VMware NSX Advanced Load Balancer (Avi Networks) offers rich capabilities for L4-L7 load balancing across different clouds and for different workloads, this in addition to Global Site Load Balancing functionality (GSLB) which allows an organisation to run multiple sites in either Active-Active (load balancing and DR) or Active-Standby (DR) fashion. For load balancing containerised […]

Overview NSX ALB (previously known as Avi) offers rich capabilities for L4-L7 load balancing across different clouds and for different workloads. However if you run vSphere with Tanzu (TKGs) on top of NSX-T networking, NSX-T will deploy standard NSX load balancers to offer L4 load balancing for guest Tanzu clusters cluster-api and subsequent loadbalancer services […]
