This week Nick Lippis from the Lippis Report sat down with Cisco Nexus 1000V Product Manager, Han Yang, to talk about the latest enhancements and trends with VXLAN, the primary virtual overlay tunneling technology in Cisco Nexus 1000V virtual networks.
In this 15 minute podcast (registration required), Han touches on three key innovations in the VXLAN area: 1) Cisco approaches to eliminating the requirement for IP Multicast by VXLAN (which I earlier blogged about here), 2) the support for virtual services, like virtual firewalls, with vPath (which I blogged about here), and 3) the use and availability of VXLAN gateways to connect virtual workloads to physical workloads in mixed application environments (which I haven’t blogged about yet, but probably should have :-)).
Nick’s podcasts always provide a good perspective on emerging technology trends and he takes complex topics and really helps his listeners get up to speed on the important bits. We always enjoy the chance to work with him. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
