This webinar describes the basics of Data Center fabric architectures offered by numerous vendors including Alcatel Lucent, Arista Networks, Avaya, Brocade, Cisco, Force10 Networks, HP, Juniper, NEC and Plexxi.
Regular update sessions describe the progress individual vendors made since the initial webinar was released (check also the list of webinar videos and materials).
DATA CENTER FABRIC ARCHITECTURES
This webinar is ideal for IT managers and networking engineers that have to look behind the vendor marketectures to understand the benefits and drawbacks of individual data center solutions.
If you are a network architect, designer or sales/support engineer working in data center environment, you simply have to attend this webinar.
The initial webinar focused on vendor-specific fabric architectures and classified them based on control and data plane position within the fabric into the following major groups:
Independent management, control and data plane ? Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG) and large-scale bridging solutions from ALU, Arista, Avaya, Brocade, Cisco and Force10.
Centralized management, independent control and data planes - Cisco's UCS Manager, Juniper's Virtual Chassis and QFabric.
Centralized control plane, distributed data planes - Cisco's VSS, HP's IRF, Juniper's XRE.
Centralized data plane - Port extender architectures
Per-flow data plane setup - OpenFlow
Controller-based networking - Plexxi
The webinar also described how well each individual solution fulfills the following criteria:
Layer 2 and Layer 3 multipathing;
Multi-chassis Link Aggregation (MLAG);
Data Center Bridging (DCB) support;
Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) support;
Simplified provisioning and management.
