Physical & Cloud Workloads
Flat Networking is not suited for cloud networking. Tenants sharing the same cluster can see each others’ traffic. A challenge to configure, VLAN networks have a hard limit of segmentation IDs. Overlapping subnets and IP ranges providing headroom for segmentation identifiers, VXLANs provides tenant isolation by encapsulating network traffic. Advantage of using VXLAN are many. First, VXLANs allowing for overlapping subnets and IP ranges and thus provides headroom for segmentation identifiers. Second, VXLANs provides tenant isolation by encapsulating network traffic and operates at wire speed.
Applications drive networking
Applications are deployed on virtual and physical machines. Despite widespread use of virtualization, some memory-intensive workloads like Voice, Big Data/Hadoop and relational databases are still more suited for bare metal.
MidoNet allows you to mix and match virtual and physical workloads in a single logical network with simplified management oversight.
Seamless Integration Gateways
We integrate seamlessly with networking hardware gateways from Dell, HP, Lenovo, that support VTEP termination. We enable brite box switching from Penguin, QCT, Edgecore leveraging Linux-enabled networking operating systems from Cumulus and Pica8.
Having workloads running on physical servers should not prevent you from creating a single logical network and running the applications in the configurations best suited for your business without the management complexity.
