Overlay Virtual Networking

Overlay virtual networking is the new (scalable) approach to providing dynamic on-demand virtual networks.

In overlay virtual networking architectures the physical fabric provides stable IP transport while the fabric edge or the hypervisor virtual switches encapsulate customer Ethernet or IP traffic using encapsulation technologies like VXLAN.

After completing this module you'll be able to design an overlay virtual networking solution.

2:37:00 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.

The second half of the webinar dives deep into packet walks -- from simple layer-2 overlay networks to distributed layer-3 forwarding.

3:42:00 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.

42:27 Free items Designing Network Infrastructure

One of the last steps in a data center- or cloud infrastructure design is the selection of the virtual networking architecture you want to use, and finally the design of the physical network infrastructure.
