Overlay Networks in the Datacenter

This session will be an introduction to overlay networking in the data center, with a view to other areas in the enterprise and service provider spaces. The fundamental reasoning and principles behind network overlays will be discussed, and we will compare and contrast the different available technologies (Fabricpath, OTV, VXLAN, NVGRE, LISP, etc) in order to understand the pros and cons of each approach as well as the applicability of each to the next generation datacenter. This technologies in this session are mostly vendor agnostic, with an insight into how these are applied via the Nexus 9000 series of switches.
