Bulk Creating AWS VPC Flow Logs

vRealize Network Insight provides traffic visibility in AWS by ingesting the VPC Flow Logs. It correlates the flows to EC2 instances and adds more context, like the security groups, tags, and more. 

VPC Flow Logs are not enabled by default and need to be configured before vRNI can start ingesting the logs. That’s where this post comes in. The AWS lab that I use at VMware for demos is for the entire CMBU and has a bunch of smart people doing cool things. In other words, a ton of VPCs get created and deleted, EC2 instances deployed dynamically. I wanted … Read more

The software is the magic sauce, which they prove by providing virtual Edges for vSphere, so you can place the edge anywhere. vSphere isn’t the only virtual format; they’ve also made it available for AWS, Azure, AliCloud, and GCP. 

I’ve been deploying regional (US, EMEA, APJ) POPs of SD-WAN HUBs to better replicate an enterprise SD-WAN in the vRealize Network Insight demo lab (more on that in a future post), and ran into some things to take notice of, or even fix … Read more

Connecting a VPN between AWS and VMware NSX

While AWS has a ton of examples for firewall/VPN vendors, there is none for connecting with NSX. I needed to connect a NSX network with AWS for a proof of concept and had to figure out how to configure AWS and what settings to use on the NSX Edge VPN. Behold, the fruits of my labor!
