Re: VXLAN
Hi Abe,

Thanks for the feedback.  Which certifications would you like to see Microsoft (and others) offer for free?

Thanks,
Symon

@Symon.  "I use the Microsoft solutions...but I may be biased :)"

 

I feel the same way.  This is why I argue that some vendor certifications should be free.  I'm a walking advertisement for the Microsoft products that I am certified in.

Re: VXLAN
Some good points ClassC.  I'm seeing a lot of progress in convincing software vendors to adopt open standards, but it will still take time.  We encourage YOU (the customer) to make these requests of your different software vendors, as that helps build the momentum.  Stay tuned for the fifth blog in this series where I'll talk about different ways to engage and influence these vendors.

Re: VXLAN
@Symon    I am really surprise we still have to convince companies to adopt an open standard. The IoT is pushing companies hard to no longer ignore the fact that openness will be the only way to go.

It won't be easy, since companies are based on "trade secretes" but it will be interesting to learn just how SDN will influence this perspective.

Re: VXLAN
"...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."


@jgherbert    A very point.    This is very tough decision which might cause many not to act at all - if I had to choose between the two I would probably go with the MS solution though, but I could be wrong ( it wouldn't be the first time ) and then what ?

Re: VXLAN
Hi jgherbert,

Very true, it is hard to know which solution to invest in today.  Just make sure it is one of those companies that has showed they're committed to open protocols, then you should always have the option to connect to a different procol or layer in the future.

In the fifth blog in this series I'll talk about how everyone can influence these vendors to support openness.

Thanks,
Symon

Re: VXLAN
@aditshar1> Yes, but with caveats.

Ivan Pepelnjak wrote a nice piece about Layer 2 Data Center Interconnect technologies here (piece the URL back together yourself):

 blog.ipspace.net/2014/08/revisited-layer-2-dci-over-vxlan.html

Worth a read, especially to ensure that the issues around traffic 'tromboning' are understood.

Re: VXLAN
As VXLAN can extend the address space, which will also help in moving VM's across across long distance.
