The vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster is installed into the cross-region shared application isolated network and the remote collector nodes are installed in their region specific shared application isolated networks.

This networking design has the following features:

Each application component that fails over between regions, such as the analytics cluster for vRealize Operations Manager, is on the same network. vRealize Automation and vRealize Log Insight also share components on this network.

All nodes have routed access to the vSphere management network through the NSX Universal Distributed Logical Router.

Routing to the vSphere management network and other external networks is dynamic, and is based on the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP).

For more information about the networking configuration of the application isolated network, see Virtualization Network Design and NSX Design.

vRealize Operations Manager Isolated Network Design Decisions

Decision ID

Design Decision

Design Justification

Design Implication

SDDC-OPS-MON-009

Use the existing cross-region application virtual networks for the vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster .

Support disaster recovery by isolating vRealize Operations Manager analytics cluster on the application virtual network Mgmt-xRegion01-VXLAN.

You must implement NSX to support this network configuration.

SDDC-OPS-MON-010

Use the existing region-specific application virtual networks for vRealize Operations Manager remote collectors.

Ensures collections of metrics locally per region in the event of a cross-region network outage. Additionally, it co-localized metric collection to the per-region SDDC applications using the virtual networks Mgmt-RegionA01-VXLAN and Mgmt-RegionB01-VXLAN.

You must implement NSX to support this network configuration.
