VXLAN is quickly becoming a technology worth considering in production deployments – there are two independent hypervisor implementations (Nexus 1000V and vSphere 5.1 vDS), and other vendors announced support for VXLAN hardware termination (Arista on 7150 ToR switches, Brocade on ADX load balancers).
The upcoming VXLAN Technical Deep Dive webinar (register here) will give you a technology overview, some implementation and configuration hints, and (most importantly) design and deployment guidelines.
IP multicast in the core network is a major component of the design puzzle and I’m delighted Mark Berly from Arista Networks agreed to present Arista’s hardware termination solution and IP multicast design guidelines.
