With NSX Federation, you can federate NSX environments across VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF) instances. You can manage federated NSX environments with a single pane of glass, create gateways and segments that span VMware Cloud Foundation instances, and configure and enforce firewall rules consistently across instances.

Important: If you plan to deploy VMware Aria Suite components, you must deploy Application Virtual Networks before you configure NSX Federation. See Deploying Application Virtual Networks in VMware Cloud Foundation.
