The three key elements that comprise NSX-T – Management Plane, Control Plane, and Data Plane -- are deployed on the VxBlock 1000 platform and enable how it interacts with the VxBlock 1000 persistent architecture described in the previous section.
A brief description of each component:
Deploying NSX-T on a VxBlock Management, Control, and Data Plane cluster consists of configuring the NSX Manager Appliance in a cluster of three virtual machines. This configuration offers availability, redundancy, and performance at scale. Clustering allows the platform to process large-scale concurrent API requests using REST API calls. A web-based UI entry point is also available for all user configurations.
