VMware vRealize Network Insight 3.1 Architecture and Scalability

vRealize Network Insight 3.1 released on October 6th with new a scalability capability.  This new capability allows Network Insight to better support large enterprises.  In this blog post I will cover the basics of Network Insight architecture, explain the new multi-node clustering feature and walk through the configuration of clustering in the user interface.

Architecture Overview

Network Insight provides a modular architecture with two components which are virtual appliances that easily deploy in your existing vSphere infrastructure.  The primary component is the Platform VM which provides the analytics, user interface and data management for Network Insight.  The other component is the Proxy VM which is used to connect to the various data sources supported by Network Insight, such as vCenter, NSX and physical network devices.

In the diagram below you can see the relationship of the Platform and Proxy VMs in a typical, non-clustered, architecture.

The nice thing about this architecture is it provides flexibility for distributed environments.  For example, the image below shows how three remote sites can be monitored from a single Platform VM using multiple Proxy VMs.  By the way, the Proxy VMs securely communicate over port 443 with the Platform VM and communication is always initiated by the Proxy VMs.
