Schützen Sie Ihr Virtual Datacenter mit der integrierten Firewall

Protect your Virtual Datacenter with the integrated firewall

With the integrated VMware NSX Edge Gateway you get a fully-fledged firewall with DHCP, NAT, routing, load balancing, IPSec and SSL VPN. Your Edge Gateway is configured either standalone or in high availability mode (HA) for maximum availability. And if you still prefer your own firewall appliance, it can be easily integrated as a separate VM in Virtual Datacenter.

Steuern Sie das Load-Balancing auf Ihre Server

Control the load balancing to your servers

The NSX Edge Gateway includes sophisticated load balancing functionality with rich configuration capabilities. Services are monitored using HTTP(S), TCP, UDP or ICMP requests and servers with an invalid response are immediately removed from the service pool. Load balancing is done by round robin, IP or URL hash, using HTTP header fields, URL parameters, or to the server with the fewest open connections.

Realisieren Sie Multi-Site-Umgebungen ohne Routing oder VPN

Connect your VDCs via Layer 2 Stretched Networks

Assign your VMs to the same subnet, regardless of whether they are operated in the data center in Rümlang or Lupfig. Layer 2 stretched networks are virtual subnets that span both VDC sites without routing or VPN. Your systems work with the same IP configuration at both VDC sites. This allows replication and migration of VMs between both VDC sites with minimal downtime and failover. At the same time, network communication between VDC sites has no VPN overhead and managing your infrastructure becomes easier and more flexible.

Nutzen Sie die Internetanbindung beider Datacenter

Increase redundancy with multiple egress points

When a VM in a stretched network accesses the Internet, it uses the local NSX Edge Gateway (Egress Point) by default. To increase connection redundancy, the edge gateways in both VDC locations can be operated in an active-passive configuration. If the active egress point fails, all traffic from the stretched network is automatically routed via the egress point in the other VDC location. The accessibility of the public IP addresses is ensured via BGP routing.

Definieren Sie Firewall-Regeln auf VM-Ebene mit der Distributed Firewall

Define firewall rules at VM level

The distributed firewall allows you to centrally define firewall rules at VM level. You control and segment the network traffic of individual VMs even though they are in the same virtual network. For example, allow an application server to communicate only with its own database server, but not with the file server or the database server of another application. You map fine-grained security guidelines centrally and with little effort.

Setzen Sie eigene Firewall Appliances ein

Use your own firewall appliance

If the firewall functionality of the integrated NSX Edge Gateway does not meet your requirements, you can easily use a virtual firewall appliance from pfSense, Barracuda, Fortinet, Juniper, Cisco, Sophos or other vendors instead. The appliance operates as a VM and gets the public IP addresses of your VDC directly assigned on the WAN interface.

Binden Sie Unternehmensstandorte und User über VPN an

Connect branch offices and users via VPN

Connect your branch offices and mobile users to Virtual Datacenter. Site-to-site IPSec VPN connections can be configured quickly and easily and SSL VPN clients for Windows, macOS and Linux are available for your end devices.
