The NSX-T virtual networking solution includes the capability of deploying an Edge gateway as a load-balancer.

It offers high availability and load balancing for TCP and HTTP-based applications.

Note:

Please use NSX-T version 2.2 or higher if you like to handle SSL Certificates within the load-balancer.

Prerequisites

The following are the prerequisites for a functional NSX-T load balancer in front of a vRealize Operations Manager cluster:

  • This document assumes that NSX-T is already deployed in the environment and is fully functional

  • The NSX-T deployment is version 2.2 or higher

  • NSX-T Edge has access to the network on which the vRealize Operations Manager cluster is deployed

  • NSX-T Tier-1 edge for load balancing is configured

  • A vRealize Operations Manager cluster has been deployed in the environment and is fully functional with all nodes in the cluster accepting traffic. The cluster might have high availability enabled, but it is not a requirement

  • 1 Virtual Server IP address for vRealize Operations Manager analytics

An additional VIP/Virtual Server IP address for EPOps traffic, in case of separate load balancers is used for analytics and EPOps
