Synergy vs NSX-T

Hello all,

I would like to ask you if somebody has experience and/or design guide for NSX-T running on Synergy. I have only found technical whitepaper which is focused on NSX-V, so it is not usable.

I have customer which decided to migrate from NSX-V to NSX-T and there is limitation on Synergy Virtual Connect side :

NSX-T needs (in customer's design) 4 independent uplinks bringing same VLAN (GENEVE VLAN in this case), so it is not possible because obvious reason where VirtualConnect allows one VLAN to be delivered only on one  NetworkSet / Compute module uplink pair.

As first recommendation a tunneled mode came to my mind, but is it "best practise" to do it in such way? I do not really know - do we have other choices?

Thanks in advance

Michal

Re: Synergy vs NSX-T

Hi Michal,

I did dearched and couldnt find any technical paper for NST-V with Synergy. as you mentioned other thn NSX-V

https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-a00063331en_us&docLocale=en_US

But seems this is supported as part of VCF.

If you have Vmware support with HPE (or) with vendor itself, please log a support case for them to validate.

Thanks.
