Migrating to Google Compute Platform – Fit Assessment
In another collaboration with The CTOAdvisor, we have spent some hands-on time with the Google cloud and the process to migrate on-premises applications to the Google cloud. Here on Build Day Live, we will be documenting some of the procedures for that migration. On the CTO Advisor site, we will have more architectural and executive-oriented content around the migration, and you will probably find some of my thoughts on my blog at Demitasse. This is the first post, where we will use the Google Fit tool to examine the CTO Advisor infrastructure and identify possible migration strategies for applications residing on the existing VMware platform that we wish to move to the Google Cloud Platform. If you would prefer to watch a video of this process, you can find that here on the Build Day Live channel. The Fit tool documentation can be found here (Google mFit Documentation) and was […]
VMware SDWAN – Policies and Secure Private Networks
Why would you want a Software-Defined WAN? The most straightforward answer is that you wish to a single place to control your WAN by policy, rather than managing dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of devices one at a time through their separate configuration files. The second part is replacing or supplementing expensive private network connections with Internet connectivity and centrally managed VPNs. The VMware SDWAN solution (formerly VeloCloud) delivers policy-based management and cloud VPNs at scale. Rohan Naggi ran me through the basic principles of SDWAN in the first video of the Build Day TV series about the VMware solution. There are three parts of the solution: physical routers deployed to each site (SD-WAN Edge), a cloud management console (SD-WAN Orchestrator), and a cloud-based network forwarding plane (SD-WAN Gateway). One of the SDWAN solution’s key objectives is to enable branch office, home office, and edge deployment and operation without ever […]
SD-WAN Intrinsic Security
In this 5th episode, Rohan Naggi walks us through setting up the Built-in firewall, a Firewall VNF, a centralized firewall, and integration with a Gateway for setting up business policies.
Application Performance of VMWare SD-WAN
Now your VMware SD-WAN is setup, and we’ve tested connections, it’s time to figure out what happens when failover occurs. Rohan will simulate some traffic bandwidth, and show how the SD-WAN Internet will continue to perform.
