Ecosystem Support

Avi Vantage integrates with the following ecosystems:

  • Bare Metal (Linux Server Cloud)

  • No-Orchestrator Cloud

  • VMware vCenter

  • VMware NSX-T

  • OpenStack

  • Nutanix

  • Cisco CSP

  • Amazon Web Services

  • Microsoft Azure

  • Google Cloud Platform

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • IBM SoftLayer

  • VMC on AWS

  • OpenShift / Kubernetes – Refer to Avi Kubernetes Operator

Note: Starting with Avi Vantage 20.1.5, the NSX-V Cloud Connector is no longer supported. NSX-V Cloud was deprecated in version 20.1.3, and is now unsupported. It is recommended to migrate to an NSX-T cloud connector, or switch to no-orchestrator mode with NSX-V.

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+

NSX-T - Avi Support Matrix

NSX-T Version Minimum Avi Controller Version

OpenStack Version Support

Refer to OpenStack Support Matrix user guide.

No-Access Mode

No-Orchestrator: KVM (Red Hat/CentOS- 7.6 and Ubuntu 16.04) with SR-IOV NIC’s only (For more details on Linux KVM with SR-IOV data NIC, refer to Linux KVM with SR-IOV data NIC.
