Introduction to Virtualized Networking
Introductory webinar describing the networking requirements of server virtualization and IaaS cloud services, workload mobility, large-scale virtual networking solutions and multi-tenant isolation. This webinar is the recommended entry-level starting point for networking engineers interested in virtualization and cloud services.
Data Center Fabric Architectures
The webinar describes the data center networking requirements and various approaches to data center fabric networks. It includes in-depth analysis of fabric architectures used by major data center networking vendor and compares their scalability and ease-of-use.
The Leaf-and-Spine Fabric Architectures webinar describes the leaf-and-spine (Clos fabric) concepts, architecture, and single- and multistage designs that can be used to build large layer-2 or layer-3 all-point-equidistant Data Center networks.
This webinar will walk you through the virtual firewalls taxonomy, describe the major architectural options, and illustrate typical use cases with products from established virtual firewall vendors and startups. The webinar assumes familiarity with virtual networking concepts and VMware networking solutions.
Networking in Private and Public Clouds
This 3-hour webinar describes the networking requirements of various cloud services (from infrastructure virtualization to software-as-a-service solutions) and designs you can use to build data center networks that support them. The webinar focuses on IaaS networking scalability and helps you select the most appropriate architecture for your environment based on the number of physical servers and tenants you envision in your environment.
Overlay Virtual Networking
This vendor-agnostic webinar briefly revisits the networking needs of server virtualization and IaaS cloud computing and describes the benefits and drawbacks of overlay virtual networks as compared to traditional VLAN-based solutions (including VM-aware networking technologies like 802.1Qbg). The second half of the webinar focuses on architectural and scalability aspects of individual solutions from major virtualization vendors (Cisco, VMware, Microsoft) and open-source alternatives (OpenStack).
Scaling Overlay Virtual Networks
Every major hypervisor- and networking vendor has an overlay virtual networking product or solution. Most of them work reasonably well in small environments, but would they also scale to thousands of hosts and tens- or hundreds of thousand of virtual machines or Docker containers
This free webinar sponsored by Nuage Networks (now part of Nokia) explores the scalability challenges of overlay virtual networks and give you some guidelines that you can use to select the overlay virtual networking solution for your public or private cloud.
VXLAN Technical Deep Dive
VXLAN is a novel MAC-over-IP technology used to implement large-scale layer-2 multi-tenant virtual networking solutions within the VMware's vSphere ecosystem. This webinar will give you the architectural and technical details you need to design and deploy VXLAN-based virtual networks. It assumes familiarity with virtual networking concepts and VMware networking solutions.
Designing a Private Cloud Infrastructure
This webinar describes the infrastructure requirements of small- and medium-sized private clouds and presents an architectural blueprint that could be used to design simple-to-operate private clouds.
Designing Active-Active and Disaster Recovery Data Centers
This webinar covers typical design scenarios encountered when building a disaster recovery data center or deploying multiple data centers in an active-active configuration.
Cloud Infrastructure Case Studies
These case studies describe the process of building a private cloud
infrastructure, and scaling it out by using standardized single-rack
