Cluster Management virtual network

  • Contains the Nutanix Ready Nodes
  • Nodes reside in a delegated subnet (special BareMetal construct)

Hub virtual network

  • Contains a gateway subnet and VPN Gateway
  • VPN Gateway is entry point from on-premises to cloud

PC virtual network

  • Contains Prism Central - Nutanix's software appliance that enables advanced functionality within the Prism portal.

Connect from cloud to on-premises

Connecting from cloud to on-premises is supported by two traditional products: Express Route and VPN Gateway. One example deployment is to have a VPN gateway in the Hub virtual network. This virtual network is peered with both the PC virtual network and Cluster Management virtual network, providing connectivity across the network and to your on-premises site.
