On Network Virtualization and SDN

Scott Lowe

Is there a difference between network virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)? So, in a similar fashion to my post on network overlays vs. network virtualization , I thought I’d weigh in with some thoughts. My purpose, as John put it when he invited me, was to “gently introduce” the community to the idea of network virtualization, which is where I now spend most of my time since joining VMware in early February.

Thinking Out Loud: Targeting the Real Problem

Scott Lowe

Clearly there are some real benefits to using OpenFlow in certain use cases (here’s one example ), but that doesn’t mean OpenFlow—especially hop-by-hop OpenFlow, where OpenFlow is involved at every “hop” of the packet forwarding process throughout the network—is the right solution for all environments. OpenFlow, as I understand it, is targeted at modifying/controlling how packet forwarding occurs across the network.

Active DDoS Attack – What to Do

Doctor Chaos

Typical knee-jerk reactions to the shock of the attack may be to hastily turn off the network's firewalls and re-configure the load balancers. A DDoS attack can mask the attempt by the infiltrators to breach other parts of the network. Don't Panic!

Step-by-Step: Setup Multiple Public IPs on a VM in Azure

CanITPro

Assigning multiple IP addresses to a VM enables the you to have multiple websites or services with different IP addresses and SSL certificates on a single server and to use the server as a network virtual appliance, such as a firewall or load balancer. The following diagram was generated using the Network Watcher feature described in my last post ). Navigate the portal to the VM and open the “Network Interface” blade and click on the NIC attached to the VM.

This is session CLDS006, “Exploring New Intel Xeon Processor E5 Based Platform Optimizations for 10 Gb Ethernet Network Infrastructures.” The session starts with Rodriguez giving a (thankfully) brief overview of Expedient and then getting into the evolution of networking with 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). As a provider, Expedient has to balance five core resources: compute, storage (capacity), storage (performance), network I/O, and memory.

Managing What Matters In the Cloud: The Apps » Data Center.

In these applications, multiple Web servers are needed to address a large load of user requests, which in turn depend on the business logic in a tier of application servers – and they, in turn, must access data in a tier of database servers. This pertains to managing the infrastructure elements on which the cloud is running – including the physical infrastructure elements such as servers, networks and storage, as well as the virtualization layer and the cloud stack.

Virtualized Greek

According to VMware a mature NSX environment allows you to orchestrate and provision layer 2 and 3 characteristics of the network associated to the application and VM’s but the network elements all the way up to layer 7. The ability to virtualize the network devices such as firewalls, IPS and load balancers also means that these once physical devices that have discrete interfaces can be controlled by software.

It starts by building upon the core of virtualized infrastructure, made possibe by VMware’s compute, storage, and network virtualization solutions. Casado starts his discussion about how the application has changed—the application is now a combination of servers, clients, load balancers, firewalls, and storage repositories. He says that now, in a very non-marketing way, applications have become the network.

Using Azure Bastion as a Host for VMs

Perficient

Alternatively, you can do this through a load balancer or firewall. To secure this, you need to do a network address translation (NAT) or enable Just-in-Time VM access. As well as being in these regions, your Azure Bastion must be in a virtual network with the subnet name “AzureBastionSubnet” with prefix of at least /27. It also must have no network security groups (NSGs) or routes joined to it.

Networking. Matt Oswalt recently wrapped up his 3-part “DevOps for Networking” series. Part 2 talks about source-driven configuration for NetOps (which discusses the use of Git and Gerrit to manage network device configurations), while Part 3 walks through a continuous integration pipeline for networking (which adds Jenkins to the mix described in part 2). The NFV discussion seems to be heating up a bit, particularly the “networking” part of NFV.
