4:52:00 Free items 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.

3:22:00 Free items 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).

2:39:00 Free items Virtual Firewalls

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.

2:25:00 Free VMware NSX Architecture Overview

VMware NSX brings together the best of Nicira NVP and VMware vCloud Network and Security (vCNS) into one unified platform providing a full-service L2-L7 overlay virtual network for any hypervisor, any cloud platform, deployed on top of any general purpose IP network hardware.

This webinar describes the principles of overlay virtual networking, architecture of VMware NSX and its components, NSX principles of operation, and services offered by VMware NSX in vSphere based clouds, and open source based clouds like OpenStack or CloudStack.

5:58:00 VMware NSX Technical Deep Dive

This webinar describes VMware NSX principles, architecture and components, including overlay virtual networking, physical-to-virtual gateways, network services and security.

4:34:00 VMware NSX, Cisco ACI or Standard-Based EVPN

Are you building a new data center fabric? Trying to decide whether to use VMware NSX or Cisco ACI? How about EVPN? This fast-paced webinar will help you select the best option for your environment.


Overlay Virtual Networking and SDDC

The second digital book in the Software Defined Networking series describes the overlay virtual networking principles, architectures, solutions, and their applications in software-defined data centers (SDDC).
