L3 networking throughout the datacenter
Routing on the host refers to the notion of running a routing daemon on your host to directly advertise reachability from the host into the network fabric. Traditionally, this is done using Layer 2 technologies (VLANs, VXLANs) to segment L2 domains and put hosts in a specific VLAN with the ToR advertising subnet reachability. With software such as Quagga users can free users from the lock in of MLAG, help server load balancing via Anycast, and make VMs and Containers dynamically migratable across Datacenters without changing IP addresses.

Bring something to grill and the family (kids very welcome). I’ll (JimK) be making some sides. Adult beverages with responsibility are certainly welcome. Note the preponderance of “beer snobs” in ALE these days – so that Bud Light you were thinking about bringing will go home with you afterwards.
Note: my house is also inhabited by 4 cats. If you have allergies, you’ve been warned.
Email Jim Kinney off list for the address.
So how about the meeting attendees come with their own 1-2 minute topic of how Linux is used by them to get something done. Maybe the first project you did using Linux that convinced you Linux was a tool that you wanted to know more about.
As Thursday is St. Patrick’s day, we will certainly adjourn to Melton’s for libations. The crowd there may be larger than normal.
Please email Jim or JD off list ASAP if you want to present.
The ALE Central meeting will be held at 7:30 pm in the usual location at Emory. The topic will be “LVM – A modern tool for laptops and servers.”
Check the ALE-Central location link for how to get to the room.
November’s topic will be LVM, Logical Volume Management. What it is, how it works, how to use it and when not to use it will be discussed. Additionally some “gotcha’s” that cause heartburn will be covered as well.
We will meet at 7:30 at the ALE-Central location.
