Virtualized Workload Mobility - latest design guidance with LISP


The Virtualized Workload Mobility solution enables the live migration of virtual machines (VMs) between data center sites up to 100 kilometers apart.  This Cisco Validated Design (CVD) provides the recommended best practices and highlights the various functional components of a Cisco Data Center Interconnect (DCI) Solution. It validates the corresponding technologies in the context of a Virtualized Workload Mobility deployment.


Data Center Interconnect (DCI) technologies and functional components include the following:

  • Virtual PortChannel (VPC) over a dedicated connection for LAN extension services
  • Cisco OverlayTransport Virtualization (OTV) as a LAN extension option
  • Integration of Cisco Application Control Engine (ACE) and Global Site Selector (GSS) with VMware vCenter server to provide path optimization
  • VMware vMotion, integrated with the Cisco Nexus1000V virtual distributed switch and Cisco Virtual Security Gateway (VSG)
  • Storage requirements for workload mobility solutions from both NetApp and EMC
