Hybrid Cloud extended network between Azure and private datacenterThis is just one possible scenario that you could use create a Layer 2 stretch network in your hybrid cloud environment. The goal is to understand this scenario and to have a place to ask questions. The plan is to introduce additional scenarios to drive understanding. This scenario is using AOS 6.6. The scenario will mostly likely change with newer AOS releases. We have an Azure environment on the top the below diagram and private datacenter below the Azure environment. We want to understand what happens if the VMs running on Nutanix in Azure failback/migration to the private datacenter while using layer 2 stretch. After the failover, how will the native Azure VMs in Step 4 reach the VMs that failed/migrated. The VMs running the NC2 cluster in Azure are using a routed path to get access. The means we have ability to route on-prem an native Azures services to the VMs running on the NC2 cluster. Step 1 – L2We have a setup
Prism Central in Azure provides the control plane for Flow Virtual Networking. The subnet for Prism Central is delegated to Microsoft.BareMetal/AzureHostedService, so you can use native Azure networking to distribute IP addresses for Prism Central.Once you deploy Prism Central, the Flow Virtual Networking Gateway (FGW) VM deploys into the same VNet that Prism Central uses. The FGW allows communication between the guest VMs using the VPCs and the native Azure services. Using the FGW, guest VMs have parity with native Azure VMs for elements such as:User-defined routes: You can create custom or user-defined (static) routes in Azure to override Azure’s default system routes or to add routes to a subnet’s route table. In Azure, you create a route table, then associate the route table to zero or more virtual network subnets. Load balancer deployment: You can balance services offered by guest VMs with the Azure-native load balancer. Network security groups: You can write stateful firewall pol
Stop the Man in the Middle Attacks.Whether you're replicating to the cloud or to a remote branch site you may not control the networking stack and to end. When you don't control the networking stack end to end or you're in an environment that simply doesn't have a firewall you can use Nutanix Native DR encryption between your Nutanix clusters. The feature is fully supported for both PD and Nutanix DR(PC) based replication.Changes will persistent after reboots of the CVMs and upon upgrades.AOS needs to be on 6.1 or higher.DR with Encryption will use 14119,14108 as additional ports that need to open bi-directional when all of the CVMS. *** Note you need to run the below steps on each cluster.To enable this featureSSH to the CVM Change the folder to bin - all the python commands need to ran from the bin directory cd bin Run the script. For PD based Replication python onwire_encryption_tool.py --enable <remote_cluster_vip> For PC/Nutanix DR Replication Enure your Prism Centrals
I want to try FRAME with azure to see what it give “hope” azure native login is supported.I created the enterprise application , the secret etc.. the only step that i change is that i set the owner permission on the RG quite better than the subscription but i receive an ADAL error during authentication ; this is maybe because ADAL is depreciated .. could you warn the support about it ?
Nutanix Clusters provides a single platform that can span private and public clouds but operates as a single cloud using Prism Central enabling true hybrid cloud architecture. Nutanix Clusters provides on-prem workloads, a home in the cloud, offering native access to available AWS services without requiring you to reconfigure your software.You use the Nutanix Clusters console to deploy a cluster in a VPC in AWS, and not Foundation. After you launch a Nutanix cluster in AWS by using Nutanix Clusters, you can operate the cluster in the same manner as you operate your on-prem Nutanix cluster with no change in nCLI, the Prism Element and Prism Central web console, and APIs. You use the Nutanix Clusters console to create, hibernate, resume, update, and delete your Nutanix cluster. Following are the key points for running Nutanix cluster on AWSRuns on the EC2 bare metal instances.following EC2 bare metal instances: z1d.metal m5d.metal i3.metal i3en.metal Nutanix Clusters stack in AWS i
Since its inception; the Nutanix platform has offered customers a robust set of data protection technologies. Many of our customers leverage these capabilities as a part of their DR strategy.Now, with the advent of Nutanix Clusters (on AWS bare metal today) extending the capabilities enabled by the data protection suite to the public cloud is now a reality. Nutanix Clusters on AWS deploys the Nutanix HCI stack onto AWS bare metal instances. Provisioned via a customer portal customers can have a public cloud resident Nutanix Cluster operational in very short order.At which point they’re ready to leverage the public cloud as a part of their DR strategy; while maintaining a familiar operator experience:
OverviewNutanix Clusters GovCloud enables United States government customers to run a secure Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud in adherence with the US government compliance regimes.Nutanix Clusters GovCloud runs as a separate instance from the Nutanix Clusters commercial instance. To create a Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud, set up your AWS GovCloud account similar to an AWS commercial account. After you set up your AWS GovCloud account and complete the required documentation, the GovCloud Nutanix Operations team provides you access to the Nutanix Clusters GovCloud instance. You can then proceed to create a Nutanix cluster on AWS GovCloud as you would do on a commercial instance. Even though Nutanix Clusters GovCloud runs as a separate instance from the commercial instance, all features and workflows are identical to the commercial instance of Nutanix Clusters. See Nutanix Clusters On AWS Deployment and User Guide for more information.AWS GovCloud RegionsYou can create a Nutanix cluster
Hello All, I have added a managed network in our cluster. We have since purchased another cluster and in the process of configuring VXLan and the ability to live migrate VM’s between clusters. From what I have been seeing we cannot have a managed network across clusters is this correct? If not does anyone know how to configure a managed network to work between clusters.Thanks,Scott
AOS 6.7 has added more options for securing your cluster in AWS. We will take a look at the existing options and dive into the new feaure in AOS 6.7.You can use AWS security groups and network access control lists to secure your cluster relative to other AWS or on-premises resources. Nutanix automatically creates three security groups to limit traffic to the cluster:Internal management: Allows all internal traffic between all CVMs and all AHV hosts (EC2 bare-metal hosts). Don’t edit this group without approval from Nutanix Support. User management: Allows users to access Prism Element and some other services running on the CVM. UVM: Allows UVMs to talk to each other. By default, all UVMs on all subnets can talk to each other, but you can edit the policy to lock down more traffic. You could alternatively use Flow Network Security to prevent east-west traffic. With AWS security groups, you can limit access to the AWS CVMs, AHV host, and UVMs only from your on-premises management network
Hello Everyone,I am trying to deploy NC2 on azure but , I need to Add cloud account .Everytime I gave all the correct information of azure like, Directory ID , Subscription ID, Application ID, and secret value it gave error “Azure credentials are not valid.” How to resolve it .Please Help.Best Regards ,Rajesh Kumar
We are experiencing issues with the "ncc health_checks run_all" command on the Nutanix CVM machine, both from Putty and the web console. The checks are failing or aborting after waiting for more than 30 minutes. Your assistance in resolving this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
