Mobility master and VMC

Hello,

 

I have noticed two new types of controllers on the IRIS configurator recently which are the virtual mobility controller and the mobility master found with OS 8.0.

I tried reading few things but the difference between these two is still not clear for me.

what are the main differences between theset two and where to deploy each?

[ Edited ]

The Mobility Master is a new component of the Aruba architecture that enables customers to take advantage of advanced features that require central coordination and for networks to scale due to increased demand for mobile and IoT devices. It also replaces the prior functions of the master controller and can be either deployed as a VM or an x86 hardware appliance. The Mobility Master provides automatic RF optimization and enables hitless failover in an unlikely event of a controller outage.

 

AOS 8 Datasheet.

 

AOS 8 release notes.

 

Both the links with provide lots of info. :)

 

Cheers
James

Thanks for your reply.

So one more thing, in the deployment where do I need to place only a local/ master and where to position  a master controller with a  mobility master?

Re: Mobility master and VMC

Work directly with your Aruba SE to flesh those questions out. The main thing is you have to decide or know if, in 8.x you want to leverage the features on the Mobility Master (Clustering, NBAPI, Airmatch, etc) or not. If they are not critical to your need, then you can go with 8.x on a controller without MM. If you do want those features, you need the Mobility Manager.

but your local HPE Aruba SE can better work through those questions than here.

The ArubaOS 8.0.1.0 Release Notes refer to:

Aruba Mobility Master and VMC Installation Guide

but I've tried a number of searches and keep coming up empty.
