  • 6 aspects of a cloud network that are absolutely necessary in order to provide a next generation cloud service offering Note; To be clear these capabilities are important items for a provider to haveDynamic:Most infrastructure (hosting and IaaS) environments are static.  When workloads shift from one end-point to another, the migration must be performed manually and this is time-consuming and error prone.Flexible:Customer requirements in the cloud are ever changing and extremely varied and the ability to meet specific needs in a timely fashion is important.Independent and Abstracted: No reliance on a specific hardware vendor which most importantly drives costs down and adds to flexibility, with respect to feature development
  • Poll question: Rank what is most important to you when operating on a IaaS cloud computing platform?Compute performanceAPI and time saving cloud orchestration toolsNetworking features and performance PricingTechnical SupportDeep experience in building cloud platformsLearned about networking technology limitations in the processSpoke with many network hardware vendors and decided to build our own network overlay technologyWe can now solve cloud networking problems that others cannot
  • Enterprise grade cloud solutions that advertise high uptimeand ultra high performance solutions that leverage technologies such as Infiniband, often cannot provide advanced networking features or accomodatethe level of flexibility required to support optimized custom solutions
  • Polling question #2:What type of database do you have? MySQL MS-SQL NoSQL Oracle

    2. 2. NephoScale Elastic Networking
    3. 3. Why is the Networking Technology Used in Cloud Services Platforms so Important?A cloud network must be:• Dynamic – adaptive networking that allows for easy adjustment and migration of cloud resources and workloads on-demand• Flexible - to allow for the development of features and capabilities as customer demands arise• Scalable - support unlimited layer 2 broadcast domains both within and across data centers, and support high throughput connectivity between virtual and bare metal compute resources• Secure - keep traffic isolated to specific broadcast domains within a multi-tenant environment• Resilient - intelligent, self healing, multi path design capable of failing over or rebuilding automatically• Independent and Abstracted - software based network technology that operates independently of the underlying network hardware
    4. 4. Problems that customers are facingwhen using Cloud IaaS PlatformsMost cloud IaaS platforms cannot support:• Cloud servers that deliver the performance needed for databases that rely on fast network connectivity, 50,000+ IOPs server I/O, and 1 GB/sec+ sequential write speeds• Broadcast and multicast applications such as Windows Directory Server, DHCP, IPTV, IP Telephony, clusters, grid engines, distributed caching, service discovery, etc..• Intelligent, self healing, multi path networks that can fail over or rebuild automatically, resulting in unnecessary downtime• One click deployment templates that support sequential dependency based mgmt. of cloud resources, images, stacks, recipes, embedded code, etc.• Fully meshed hybrid clouds that create optimized high throughput/low latency environments that combine virtual servers and bare metal SSD based dedicated servers, all on the same low latency layer 2 network broadcast domain
    5. 5. Fully Meshed Cloud Networking vsTraditional Single-lane Interconnect = Virtual Server = Dedicated Server = Single Lane Interconnect Vs. NephoScale Fully Meshed
    6. 6. The Story Behind the Developmentof Elastic Networking• When NephoScale first embarked on developing the technology surrounding "Elastic Networking, the team already had decades of experience building large scale hosting environments, and clearly understood the limits of existing network technology as it applied to supporting the demands of different applications in a cloud datacenter environment• NephoScale’s Elastic Networking is a SDN (software defined networking) based technology that is designed to enable users to design and manage their own networks• When it comes to cloud computing, the existing traditional network technology is too static, inflexible, brittle, and difficult to scale• Our goal is to offer a cloud network that is controlled by software, is fully automated, and can solve problems in ways traditional networks simply cannot
    7. 7. Network and Compute Requirements for Delivering and Scaling Applications in the CloudRequirements SolutionsReliability and Uptime Minimized cloud service failures • Outages and server crashes • Disappearing servers and loss of dataConsistency Predictable network performance • No network latency variabilityPerformance High performance networking and compute • High Server I/O with SSD bare metal dedicated server for databases • Extensively optimized cloud server host architecture delivering industry leading virtual server performance • Elimination of typical throughput bottleneck between virtual and dedicated servers • Secure private high speed network access between all serversNew Features Support for new industry standards and capabilities • IPv6 supportSecurity Isolated virtual networks • Secure private and public broadcast domains • No AARP traffic shared, and cannot ping or access others accounts resourcesNo Compromises in Network Architecture Win-win network solutionDesign • Advanced networking stack that allows for minimal trade-offs when delivering new capabilities
    8. 8. Elastic Networking Use casesoDistinct broadcast domains for public and private networks •Windows environments • DHCP server
    9. 9. Elastic Networking Use caseso Tagged VLANs •Private cloud environments such as Vmware and OpenStack
    10. 10. Elastic Networking Use caseso Sub-broadcast Domains • Resellers • Departments within enterprises
    11. 11. Elastic Networking Use caseso Configurable Server Network Ports • Control which network domain to connect your server to • Private network and private address only servers
    12. 12. Elastic Networking Use caseso Instantiating a Server without an IP Address • Provisioning servers for temporary use • Manage own networks using technologies such as DHCP and NAT
    13. 13. Elastic Networking Use caseso Virtual Private Cloud • Establish private interconnect between on-prem servers and server located on NephoScale network
    14. 14. Elastic Networking Use caseso IPv6 Support • Out of the box support, not an add-on or a fix
