is it safe to virtualize my DMZ network on an ESXi 5.0 host, with internal networks also virtualized on the host?
Posted on 2012-04-03
currently i have 3 ESXi hosts
2 have management IPs that are in my internal network
1 has management IPs that are in my DMZ network
currently the 2 ESXi hosts on the internal network only host VMs that have internal network IPs, and the 1 ESXi host that are in my DMZ network only host VMs that lay in the DMZ
i want to enable HA or FT on the servers, so i need to put all 3 servers in the same cluster,
i would like to manage the 3 ESXi hosts with internal IPs,
in the event that i need to fail a VM over, the DMZ guest machines might need to run on a host that has internal network VMs running on it.
would this be OK from a security standpoint, if i have guest VMs running on both my DMZ and my internal network?
