Overlay Transport Virtualization

- July 24, 2012 - 0 Comments

Fresh from the lab, Jimmy Ray takes a question on OTV or Overlay Transport Virtualization.  This layer 2 Data Center Interconnect technology is growing in popularity as deployed on the Nexus 7000 as it promises transparent workload mobility, business resilience and superior efficiency with computing resources. This could be THE technology for those of you overcomplicating your network design or simply not attempting certain architectures for you did not know this could be done.

We featured OTV quite awhile back in one of our earlier Fundamental animations.  See if this also helps you.  Check out the Cisco OTV page for more of course.

Thanks for watching!
