Automating NSX-T Deployments

Nicholas Michel open-sourced an automation solution (video) that deploys the whole NSX-T infrastructure stack including:

  • NSX-T manager virtual machines
  • NSX-T uplink profiles and IP pools
  • Transport zones and transport nodes (NSX-T modules on ESXi hypervisors)
  • Edge clusters including BGP, EVPN and BFD

Once the infrastructure is set up, his solution uses a Terraform configuration file to deploy multiple tenants: external VLANs, tier-0 gateways, BGP neighbors, tier-1 gateways, and application segments.

While the infrastructure part of his solution might be fully reusable, the tenant deployments definitely aren’t, but they provide a great starting point if you decide to build a fully automated provisioning system.
