NSX Data Center for vSphere allows you to manage multiple environments from a single primary NSX Manager. Benefits of Cross-vCenter NSXNSX environments containing more than one vCenter Server system can be managed centrally. How Cross-vCenter NSX WorksIn a cross-vCenter NSX environment, you can have multiple vCenter Servers, each of which must be paired with its own NSX Manager. One NSX Manager is assigned the role of primary NSX Manager, and the others are assigned the role of secondary NSX Manager. Support Matrix for Services in Cross-vCenter NSXA subset of NSX Data Center for vSphere services are available for universal synchronization in cross-vCenter NSX. Services that are not available for universal synchronization can be configured for use local to the NSX Manager. Universal NSX Controller ClusterEach cross-vCenter NSX environment has one universal controller cluster associated with the primary NSX Manager. Secondary NSX Managers do not have a controller cluster. Universal Transport ZoneIn a cross-vCenter NSX environment, there can be only one universal transport zone. Universal Logical SwitchesUniversal logical switches allow layer 2 networks to span multiple sites. Universal Logical (Distributed) RoutersUniversal Logical (Distributed) Routers offer centralized administration and a routing configuration that can be customized at the universal logical router, cluster, or host level. Universal Firewall RulesDistributed Firewall in a cross-vCenter NSX environment allows centralized management of rules that apply to all vCenter Servers in your environment. It supports cross-vCenter vMotion which enables you to move workloads or virtual machines from one vCenter Server to another and seamlessly extends your software defined datacenter security. Universal Network and Security ObjectsYou can create custom network and security objects to use in Distributed Firewall rules in the universal section. Cross-vCenter NSX TopologiesYou can deploy cross-vCenter NSX in a single physical site, or across multiple sites. Modifying NSX Manager RolesAn NSX Manager can have roles, such as primary, secondary, standalone, or transit. Special synchronization software runs on the primary NSX Manager, synchronizing all universal objects to secondary NSX Managers.
