Networking in the Cloud Age
Thurgood Marshall South Ballroom
Networking has been relatively static for decades. We've seen increases in speed, but many of the traditional topologies are inherently limited. Innovative networks are quite different. If you look at public services, such as AWS, or large private cloud deployments, you see that their networking topology looks contrary to everything that's been standard for years. In this half-day class we'll reexamine what limitations there are and what innovative options exist to remove those limitations.
Advanced system or network admins with a deep understanding of L2/L3 networking who want to learn about new networking technologies that are enabling scaling networks.
Knowledge of emerging networking standards and where they are best used.
- How massive public and private clouds build their networks to ensure scalability
- How software defined networks work
- Technologies worth looking at: VXLAN, NVGRE, GRE
