For secure access to the UI and API of vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager, you place the virtual appliance in the shared cross-region application virtual network.

Networking Design of the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager Deployment

For secure access and isolation, you deploy the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager virtual appliance in the existing application virtual network Mgmt-xRegion01-VXLAN in the SDDC hub.

Figure 1. Networking Design of the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager Deployment in the Hub


In the hub, the virtual appliance of vRealize Lifecycle Manager is connected to the cross-region application virtual network for secure access to the application UI and API, and for failover support. The appliance and the ROBO communicate over the WAN connection.

This networking design has the following features:

  • vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager has routed access to the vSphere management network through the NSX Universal Distributed Logical Router.

  • Routing to the vSphere management network, logical networks, and external networks is dynamic, and is based on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

For more information about the networking configuration of the application virtual network, see Virtualization Network Design in ROBO and NSX Design in ROBO.
