In most cases, most of us go looking for them by searching Google.

Transforming Security: Cloud & Virtualization -…

RSA Conference 2017 presentation by Tom Corn, SVP Security Products at VMware. The biggest obstacle in security may well be an architectural gap between the apps and data we must protect, and the infrastructure in which we place controls. The cloud presents a unique opportunity to architect-in security, rather than bolt it on. Micro-segmentation opened the door — enabling us to see and control the infrastructure through the lens of the application.

Hardware VTEPS – Design Considerations

Remember that a logical switch with a lif on the DLR can not be extended using a HW VTEP. The GUI will not let you select that logical switch, therefore you have to create the lif on a ESG (Edge). This has an impact on traffic flow as now all VM to VM traffic that needs to be routed will need to traverse your edge cluster and that ESG which is not optimal. This needs to be carefully considered in your design.

Also remember that Universal Logical Switches can not be used in conjunction with a Hardware VTEP.
