VxLAN is here - now what?

Cloud computing is the driving force behind these technologies. You will see plenty DC environments changing the way they do business within the DC environment. Active/Backup DCs will be a thing of the past and you will see Cloud along with Active/Active DCs not only on the 'service' industry but also within the 'enterprise'.

VxLAN is here - now what?

I agree, Edison. In my present position, we have these discussions every day. Cloud computing, FCoE, DCB, TRILL, VCS, Q-Fabric, Open Flow SDN, VxLAN, server-storage-network virtualization, VN-LINK, VEPA, etc. 

I don't have all the answers or a full understanding of VxLAN right now - I'm not sure anyone does, but it sounds very promising. It may have some advantages over TRILL in terms of deployment and management. I did a deep-dive white board session on TRILL a few months back, and I have to say that it is one of the most complex and seemingly-arbitrary protocols I have ever seen.

The future should be interesting

Re: VxLAN is here - now what?

Well lisp allows you to separate location and address in routing not really relevant for the current discussion I would think

There has been some argument about using it within the dc but none very series afaik
