VMworld 2013 – Network Virtualization: Moving Beyond the Obvious (My Notes)

Virtualized Greek

Speaker: Martin Casado (VMware Networking CTO). NSX is basically a network hypervisor similar to how ESXi is a server hypervisor. Network virtualization allows for more powerful automation. The Second are is the higher level layers such as load balancing.

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.

DockerCon 2017 Black Belt Session: Cilium for Network and Application Security

Scott Lowe

This is a liveblog of the DockerCon 2017 Black Belt session led by Thomas Graf on Cilium , a new startup that focuses on using eBPF and XDP for network and application security. Graf starts by talking about how BPF (specifically, extended BPF or eBPF) can be used to rethink how the Linux kernel handles network traffic. Why is it necessary to rethink how networking and security is handled? BPF/XDP allows for a 10x improvement in load balancing over IPVS for L3/L4 traffic.

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.

Introduction to Networking: Part 2, A Few More Basics

Scott Lowe

In part 1 of this series, I covered some networking basics (OSI and DoD models; layer 2 vs. layer 3; bridging, switching, and routing; Spanning Tree Protocol; and ARP and flooding). Finally, it’s important to note that VLANs themselves are strictly layer 2 constructs, but because a layer 3 router is needed to pass traffic between them, VLANs are often associated with IP subnets—meaning that each VLAN is considered a unique IP network.

Looking back at 10 years of compartmentalization at AWS

All Things Distributed

Even though the network design for each data center is massively redundant, interruptions can still occur. No two zones are allowed to share low-level core dependencies, such as power supply or a core network. By using zones, and failover mechanisms such as Elastic IP addresses and Elastic Load Balancing, you can provision your infrastructure with redundancy in mind. At AWS, we don't mark many anniversaries.

Changing the calculus of containers in the cloud

All Things Distributed

With Fargate, you don't need to stand up a control plane, choose the right instance type, or configure all the other components of your application stack like networking, scaling, service discovery, load balancing, security groups, permissions, or secrets management.

Microservers share some common characteristics, such as high integrated platforms (like integrated network) and being designed for high efficiency. He starts the discussion by talking about NFV and SDN, and how these efforts enable agile networks on standard high volume (SHV) servers (such as microservers). The servers are interconnected using a mesh, ToR, or multi-stage Clos network. Workloads are scheduled across these server/linecards using Valiant Load Balancing (VLB).
