VMware Validated Design 4.1 Supplement for Dell EMC Networking

VMware Validated Design 4.1 Supplement for Dell EMC Networking



Published December 2017


The purpose of this document is to provide best practices for setting up the Dell EMC leaf and spine networks in the context of an NSX-enabled VMware Validated Design environment (VVD). The leaf and spine networks detailed in this document facilitate and enable the function of the production traffic running in the NSX overlay. This document is a supplement to the Leaf-Spine Deployment and Best Practices Guide that details how the Dell EMC leaf and spine networks can be adapted to support the NSX overlay in a VVD environment. In this guide, two examples are detailed: one, in which the layer 2/3 boundary is extended to the leaf layer, and one in which the layer 2/3 boundary is extended to the spine layer. Because this guide is a supplement, there is quite a bit of information about protocols, equipment, and design decisions pertaining to the leaf and spine documentation which is left out, as that information is already explained in detail in the Leaf-Spine Deployment and Best Practices Guide. This guide explains the configuration that is addition to what is shown in the Leaf-Spine Deployment and Best Practices Guide, which is specific to supporting the overlay production network.
