Transport zones and profiles are building blocks to prepare hosts for NSX-T Data Center networking. Create Transport Zones Transport zones dictate which hosts and, therefore, which VMs can participate in the use of a particular network. A transport zone does this by limiting the hosts that can "see" a segment—and, therefore, which VMs can be attached to the segment. A transport zone can span one or more host clusters. Also, a transport node can be associated to multiple tranzport zones. Create an IP Pool for Tunnel Endpoint IP AddressesYou can use an IP pool for the tunnel endpoints. Tunnel endpoints are the source and destination IP addresses used in the external IP header to identify the hypervisor hosts originating and end the NSX-T Data Center encapsulation of overlay frames. You can also use either DHCP or manually configured IP pools for tunnel endpoint IP addresses. Enhanced Data PathEnhanced data path is a networking stack mode, which when configured provides superior network performance. It is primarily targeted for NFV workloads, which offer performance benefits leverging DPDK capability. Configuring ProfilesProfiles allow you to consistently configure identical capabilities for network adapters across multiple hosts or nodes.
