December 11, 2012 04:33 PMNetwork overlays dramatically increase the number of virtual subnets that can be created on a physical network, which in turn supports multitenancy and virtualization features such as VM mobility, and can speed configuration of new or existing services. We’ll look at how network overlays work and examine pros and cons.
November 26, 2012 03:16 PMHighly virtualized data centers are exposing cracks in traditional network constructs such as VLANs. New approaches that abstract the physical network, including network overlays, are key to providing flexibility and scale.
