This course introduces Overlay SDN Solutions, also called Network Virtualization. This technology is able to make use of VXLAN tunnels to enabled the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).
Concepts, analogies and practical demonstrations are used in this course to explain how you can use SDN to rapidly deploy networks.
The two main products discussed are:
1) Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP)
2) VMware NSX
Overview of VSP:
Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP) provides software-defined networking (SDN) and policy-based automation for cloud deployments. Designed for large enterprises and service providers, it supports clouds of all sizes and architectures, from datacenter private clouds to large enterprise wide area networks (WANs) and some of the largest public clouds in the world.
You can use Nuage Networks VSP as a virtual overlay network platform for all your existing virtual and physical server and network resources. This open SDN and SD-WAN platform helps you avoid vendor lock-in. It requires no proprietary or purpose-built hardware. And it supports all major virtualization and cloud management platforms, from Docker containers and traditional virtual machines to OpenStack and CloudStack.
With Nuage Networks VSP, you can eliminate constraints to create a more responsive and efficient cloud network.
Overview of NSX:
VMware NSX is the network virtualization platform for the Software-Defined Data Center.
NSX enables the creation of entire networks in software and embeds them in the hypervisor layer, abstracted from the underlying physical hardware. These networks can be provisioned in minutes, without the need to modify the application. NSX provides a complete set of logical networking elements and services including logical switching, routing, firewalling, load balancing, VPN, QoS, and monitoring.
David Bombal (CCIE #11023 Emeritus) passed his Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert Routing and Switching exam in January 2003 and is one of a small percentage of Cisco Engineers that pass their CCIE labs on their first attempt.
David qualified as a Cisco Certified Systems Instructor (CCSI #22787) many years ago! He has been training Cisco courses for over 15 years and has delivered instructor led courses in various countries around the world covering a wide range of Cisco topics from CCNA to CCIE.
He has also personally developed Cisco engineer utilities such as the VPN Config Generator, software, training materials, EBooks, videos and other products which are used throughout the world.
David has designed, implemented and managed networks ranging from single sites to those that span 50 countries.
