Nice introduction, Symon - I suspect you could have gone on for another hundred pages or so on this particular discussion ;-)


"I recommend using the protocol that is the most interoperable with your current and planned investments, focusing on what is required for your business application or solution."


This is a fair enough position - we should always ideally use the solution that best suits our needs and our environment. I think though that while the market is still perceived as being highly segregated (and you touched on this with your comments about Microsoft and VMWare too) some may be afraid to commit to a particular solution because they're worried about making the "wrong" choice and being left behind. The sooner we see either a widely-agreed "winner" or wide-ranging multi-protocol support, the easier it is to commit to implementing.

Thank You for the blog @Symon, although i haven't got chance to work on VXLAN but my understanding says its lot similar to VLAN with added feature as that it can take complete advantage of layer 3 routing.
