ThinkAgile CP Virtual Network (VNET) Setup

When you create a VNET, the ThinkAgile CP Cloud Controller management console manages all DHCP and NAT services via an auto-deployed application instance called the network function virtualization (NFV) instance. There is one NFV instance per VNET. This NFV instance acts like any application instance in your cloud infrastructure. It resides in a virtual datacenter and consumes migration zone and storage pool resources, and it uses the gateway IP address for your VNET.

You can also choose your own application instance to act as a VNET NFV instance. This allows load balancer and firewall applications, such as NetScaler, to run in ThinkAgile CP and act as the VNET gateway.

Note:

At least one VLAN must be created before a VNET can be deployed.
