4.2.1 Background
The static routing functionality of vCloud Networking and Security Edge (Edge) that is exposed through vCloud Director can be used to route packets and establish communication between vApp networks that would not normally be able to communicate. The two vApp networks can be connected to the same the virtual datacenter network or to separate organization virtual datacenter networks. While establishing an inter-organization IPsec VPN tunnel between the QE and Engineering organization would provide connectivity, using the static routing feature limits communication to specific vApp networks defined in the routing statements. This example covers specifically static routing and not NAT using Edge firewall rules to provide security and limit access to the destination IP address.
