|Meshing OpenStack and Bare Metal Networks with EVPN: David Iles, Mellanox Technologies|
Published on Jul 5, 2017
The latest SDN revolution is centered on creating efficient virtualized data center networks using VXLAN & EVPN. We will talk about the scale, performance, and cost advantages of using a modern controller-free virtualized network solution built on 100 Gigabit Ethernet switches with hardware based VXLAN Routing. We will explore the ease of automating such a network in an OpenStack environment and take you through a real world use case of using OpenStack Network Node bridging between a bare metal cloud (EVPN) and a fully virtualized cloud environments (orchestrated by Neutron).
