External connectors

You can use the Fabric Connectors tab to create SDN fabric connectors for the following products:

  • Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI)

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)

  • Microsoft Azure

  • VMware NSX

  • VMware NSX-T

  • Nuage Virtualized Services Platform

  • Horizon (OpenStack)

  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • VMWare ESXi

  • VMware vCentre

The fabric connectors in FortiManager define the type of connector and include information for FortiGate to communicate with and authenticate with the products. In some cases FortiGate units must communicate with products through the Fortinet SDN Connector, and in other cases FortiGate units communicate directly with the products.
