May 01, 2013 11:30 AMArista Networks’ 7500E makes switches exciting again. New line cards support 10, 40 and 100GbE mix-and-match ports and offer outstanding port density. Arista’s per-port pricing is also compelling.
February 01, 2013 04:18 PMI got a sneak peek of the Cisco Nexus 6000 switch series at Cisco Live. It's packed with 40-GbE ports, multicast support and solid core Ethernet capabilities that will translate into speed, simplicity and scale. The Nexus 6000 means Cisco finally "gets" cloud networking.
January 31, 2013 08:02 PMVMware has invested in two overlay network approaches: the VXLAN standard originally conceived by Cisco and STT, drafted by SDN startup Nicira. VMware acquired Nicira for more than a billion dollars. Which will VMware choose? Here’s my take.
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.
November 06, 2012 06:50 PMNetwork tunnels used to have a bad reputation, but the rise of software-defined networking (SDN) and network virtualization is changing that. WAN optimization, which uses tunnels, may offer insights that IT can apply to SDN.
October 18, 2012 01:37 PMMidokura this week announced its MidoNet software, which promises to virtualize networks to enable infrastructure as a service.
October 09, 2012 06:53 PMF5 Networks’ application delivery controllers will facilitate the deployment of private clouds with its support of the virtual network overlay technology.
September 26, 2012 10:20 AMArista's new 7150S switches connect to third-party SDN controllers and provide support for VXLAN tunnels for better virtual machine mobility.
September 19, 2012 01:48 PMTraditional networking is static; clouds need systems that can scale. What's the answer for a private cloud: APIs? SDN? OpenFlow? VXLAN? Take a look.

VXLAN is an Experimental IETF draft of protocols to enable the creation of a large overlay, multi-tenant network.
: OpenFlow is poised to reach over-hyped status, yet there are practical, useful reasons for keeping an eye on Openflow. The biggest cloud players are involved and driving the feature creation.
Get a primer on the Openflow protocol and what it can do for networking.
