Join us for the next Cisco TechAdvantage Webinar, a 2-hour technical discussion on the benefits of Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN) in the Data Center. This webinar will describe the motivation for using IP/MPLS technologies as a Data Center inter-connect technology.
Data Center Interconnect is a service that Service Providers (SP) can offer to interconnect Enterprise Data Centers, interconnect SP Data Centers, or allow Enterprise to connect to SP-owned compute and storage resources.
We will discuss:
Current state of the technology with BGP-VPLS and LDP-VPLS as Data Center interconnect technologies, together with the enhancements needed to provide a resilient and scalable interconnect (taking into account service instance and MAC address scaling).
Use of the relatively new EVPN technology and how it enables SPs to offer an enhanced Data Center inter-connect service. We will cover how EVPN supports enhanced functionality such as active-active dual site/host homing and fast service restoration in the presence of edge failures.
Benefits of control plane based MAC learning using BGP, as well as a method for hiding the Intra DC MAC-addresses from the MPLS infrastructure.
Various deployment options for inter-connecting Data Centers using E-VPN.
Address various platform support of these technologies.
