vShield Edge Design Guide
Jun 8, 2011
VMware vShield Edge, part of the VMware vShield family of virtualization security products, provides perimeter security and network services such as DHCP, NAT, Load balancing, and VPN service. vShield Edge is a virtual firewall appliance that can be provisioned on-demand and its services enabled on the fly to meet the flexibility requirement of cloud deployments. The goal of this document is to help customers understand where and how a vShield Edge firewall can be deployed to secure and isolate tenants/organizations, while providing some reference designs along the way. This document will also help VI administrators and network administrators understand the deployment of security and other network services in virtual datacenters using a vShield Edge firewall.
