To support the communication between tenant workloads by using application virtual networks in NSX-T and to connect tenant workloads to the external network, configure dynamic routing in the shared edge and compute cluster.

Routing occurs in both the North-South and East-West directions.
  • North-South traffic leaving or entering the workload domain, for example, a virtual machine on an overlay network communicating with an end-user device on the corporate network.
  • East-West traffic remains in the workload domain, for example, two virtual machines on the same or different segments communicating with each other.
