    • 10 SDN and the Virtual Data Center Businesses want the promise of dynamic, on-demand cloud based IT  Problem: Network and VMs layers are too intertwined • Provisioning of networks and network services cumbersome and slow • VM and network configurations must be coordinated – shared IP address domains • Changes to shared network services have unintended consequences  Solution: Fully virtualized data center (VDC) • Completely separate VM and network configuration – isolated IP address domains • Create virtual overlay networks for each virtual data center • Virtualize all network services within a VDC©2012 Riverbed Technology.

    • 13 VXLAN - The Benefits of Overlay Networks  Complete isolation network layer • Overlay networks are isolated from each other and the physical network  Massively extends VM cluster scale and flexibility • Single domain for vMotion and administrative control  Separation of Virtualization and Network layers • Physical network has no knowledge of virtual networks • Virtual networks spun up automatically as needed for VDCs  Open standard • VMWare, Cisco, Citrix, RedHat, Broadcom… • IETF Draft: draft-mahalingam-dutt-dcops-vxlan-01©2012 Riverbed Technology.

    • 14 VXLAN Challenges – Loss of Network Visibility & Control UDP Tunnel  Total loss of visibility of overlay network – all traffic is now UDP tunneled  Virtualization layer controls all tunnel and overlay network setup/tear down  Impossible to isolate overlay traffic from physical network  Different overlay networks can have overlapping address spaces How to troubleshoot and monitor network performance?©2012 Riverbed Technology.
