Architecture and Design for VMware NSX-T for Workload Domains with Multiple Availability Zones provides detailed information about the requirements for software, tools, and external services to implement VMware NSX-T™ Data Center in a shared edge and compute cluster in an SDDC that is compliant with VMware Validated Design™ for Software-Defined Data Center.

Prerequisites

Deploy the management cluster according to VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center at least in a single region. See the VMware Validated Design documentation page.

Intended Audience

This design is intended for architects and administrators who want to deploy NSX-T in a virtual infrastructure workload domain with VMware vSAN stretched clusters for tenant workloads.

Required VMware Software

In addition to the VMware Validated Design for Software-Defined Data Center 5.1 deployment, you must download NSX-T 2.4.1. You then deploy and configure NSX-T in the shared edge and compute cluster according to this guide. See VMware Validated Design Release Notes for more information about supported product versions
