My #HomeLab: Q4 '19 Update

Updates, updates, updates… I step through closing out 2019 by adding a fourth host to the vSAN cluster, bringing vSphere up to 6.7U3, completing the NSX-T 2.4 migration, and most of all: consolidating storage and data plane traffic to the N-VDS.

I also explore Brocade VCS fabrics and how they can be used to create layer 2 redundancy at top-of-rack.

NSX-T LBaaS with Workspace ONE Access

I’ve had the privilege of consuming F5 BIG-IP and Avi Networks within the lab for quite some time, but still asked on numerous occasions to provide guidance on how to load balance Workspace ONE Access with NSX.

In this brief technical post, I document the configuration for load balancing a full Workspace ONE Access cluster in production with NSX-T.

#HomeLab Networking

I mentioned in my inaugural post that attempting to cover the network design for the #homelab in one post wasn’t going to cut it.

Alas, this post dives deep into the network design of the VP lab, the physical underlay used in the architecture, and the areas which I plan to reshape in the future.
