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.

ALE July 30 cookout meeting

Filed at 11:55 am under by jkinney

July 30 starting around 4pm

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.
