Network Configurations

Nutanix Frame DaaS requires the Frame Platform to be able to communicate with the workload (Sandbox, production, and Utility server) VMs. Additionally for Frame-managed workloads on Nutanix AHV clusters, the Frame Platform must be able to communicate with Prism Element and Prism Central.

Each deployment model and its associated network requirements for both public cloud infrastructure and Nutanix AHV cluster infrastructure is outlined below. Follow the links for network diagrams and protocol tables.

Note

As of November 5, 2020, users are now redirected to https://console.nutanix.com/ after authentication. Customers who whitelist external FQDNs are advised to add console.nutanix.com and *.console.nutanix.com to their firewall and proxy server whitelists.

Attention

As of August 2, 2020, customers who wish to deploy Cloud Connector Appliance 3.0 GA for Frame-managed workloads on Nutanix AHV must ensure their firewalls and proxy servers will allow new FQDNs. Refer to the AHV Networking Configuration section for further details.

Attention

In order for customers to download Frame agent updates from Nutanix’s Content Delivery Network (CDN), prod-sup-5683567dcbd60804cb34.s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com will be replaced by downloads.console.nutanix.com in the near future. Refer to the appropriate section below for further details.

Deployment Models

Three are five primary deployment models (3 for public cloud and 2 for Nutanix AHV clusters):

Deployment Models

Deployment Model

Description

Public Cloud (Default)

All workload VMs (Sandbox, Production, and Utility Server VMs) have public IP addresses and are directly accessed by users.

Public Cloud with Private Networking

All workload VMs only have private IP addresses. Users must access the workload VMs through a private network.

Public Cloud with Private Networking and SGA

All workload VMs have private IP addresses. However, users can access the workload VMs through a Streaming Gateway Appliance (SGA) from the Internet.

Nutanix AHV with Private Networking

All workload VMs only have private IP addresses. Users must access the workload VMs through a private network.

Nutanix AHV with Private Networking and SGA

All workload VMs have private IP addresses. However, users can access the workload VMs through a Streaming Gateway Appliance (SGA) from the Internet.
