Details

Join us for an evening of data center design. Pete Lumbis from Cumulus Networks will lead an open discussion covering building and scaling Clos (Spine and Leaf) networks, creating availability zones, when to use 1RU or chassis-based switches and ways to scale beyond 32 racks in a pod. We'll also cover Layer 2 vs Layer 3 designs and ways to use VxLAN for both Layer 2 extension and for multi-tenancy. We'll talk about different VxLAN deployment scenarios for both hardware switches as well as server-based VxLAN deployments. This will be a highly technical conversation, so come with questions and be ready to learn.

Food and Drinks will be provided by Cumulus Networks!
