VXLAN on Nexus 1000V - Scott Hogg

Food arrives at 5 and the presentation starts at 6pm

 

 

Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) is a network virtualization technology that attempts to ameliorate the scalability problems associated with large cloud computing deployments.  It uses a VLAN-like encapsulation technique to encapsulate MAC-based layer 2 Ethernet frames within layer 3 UDP packets. The VXLAN specification was originally created by VMware and Cisco but it has broad industry support and is now being worked on as an IETF standard.

 

This presentation covers the current data center and cloud environment, the challenges and the issues related to layer-2 data center interconnection.

This presentation explains VXLAN and how it works.  We also demonstrate VXLAN configuration and operations in a lab using VMware and Cisco Nexus 1000V.

The presentation concludes by discussing the advantages, disadvantages of VXLAN and alternatives to VXLAN.

    Is it possible to set up wireless access this evening?
    I called the lobby ambassador at Cisco today - they have a temp in today who does not know how to process these.
