BGP Convergence and ASn allocation design in Large Scale Networks covered in this post and the video at the end of the post.
RIFT – Routing in Fat Trees. RIFT is a Routing Protocol which is targeted for Densely Meshed topologies such as Fat Tree. Tony Przygienda who is the inventor of RIFT, Jeff Tantsura and Orhan Ergun are discussing below questions about RIFT routing protocol.
In this post, Edge Computing and Fog Computing will be explained. Network engineers, network designers, network architects need to know these two important industry terms and their architecture to decide “how” and “where” to deploy workload, where to store data. and many important architectural decisions.
Edge computing is a networking philosophy focused on bringing computing as close to the source of data as possible, in order to reduce latency and bandwidth usage. In a simpler term, edge computing means running fewer processes in the cloud and moving those processes to local places, such as on a user’s computer, an IoT …
High Availability inside the Datacenter: In Leaf/Spine VXLAN based data centers, everyone likes to provide HA with Active/Active in it, so choices are different. There are two types of HA in data centers, Layer 3 and Layer 2.
Arp Proxy – When it comes to multi domain or Inter datacenter communication, minimizing the broadcast traffic between the datacenters is an important scaling requirement. Especially if you are dealing with millions of end hosts, localizing the broadcast traffic is critical to save resources on the network and the end hosts. Resources are bandwidth , …
Spanning Tree, Link Aggregation , VLAN and First Hop Redundancy protocols are used in Campus, Service Provider Access and Aggregation and in the Datacenter environment. There are definitely other protocols which are common across the Places in the Networks but in order to keep this article short and meaningful I choose these four.
IEEE 802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) uses IS-IS as an underlying control plane mechanism that allows all the links in the topology to be active. In sum, it supports layer 2 multipath. SPB is used in the datacenter; however, it can also be used in the local area network. In this article, Figure-1 will be …
Disaster Recovery – Businesses want to choose reliable equipments, components and technologies while designing a network. You may deploy most reliable equipments from your trusted vendor or deploy most mature technologies with carefully do not forget eventually every system fails!
