VMware Ecosystems

Avi Vantage Version VMware vCenter versions
17.2.13, 18.1.4 5.0 and 5.1 are not supported.
18.1.x 5.1, 5.5, 6.0, 6.4, 6.5, 6.7
18.2.x 5.1, 5.5, 6.0, 6.4, 6.5, 6.7, vSphere 7.0 (CVDS)
Note: vSphere 7.0 (CVDS) is supported starting with Avi Vantage version 18.2.9
20.1.x 5.1, 5.5, 6.0, 6.4, 6.5, 6.7, 7.0

Avi Vantage only works with the following switches in a vCenter cloud:

  • Standard Virtual Switch (vSwitch)

  • Distributed Virtual Switch (vDS)

Also, the deployment of the controller and service engine OVA directly on an ESX host (for a no-access or other cloud-connector types) is NOT supported. They must be deployed using the vCenter UI, as the deployment requires Open Virtualization Format (OVF) properties to be configured.

  • VMXNET3 network adapter is required for SE to operate in DPDK mode in VMware

  • NSX-T v 2.5. and 3.0

  • VMware NSX 6.2.4+
