What do you think of when you hear active/active as a requirement for datacenter connectivity? If its not the first thing on your mind, it’s in the top-5, and I’m talking about the need to influence ingress routing (i.e., keeping traffic local to where you endpoints reside). Whenever we have an active/active routing design, routes … More CPOC Series: Using the Host-based routing feature in ACI to optimize ingress routing for MultiPod
Healthscores in ACI are a powerfully simple way to help us troubleshoot connectivity issues inside of the ACI Fabric. In this video, we’ll take down interfaces that are connected to our fabric, and use the Healthscore inside of our Tenant to troubleshoot the issue.
Now that we have VMM integration completed, we’re going to take advantage of the Layer-2 connectivity between our ACI Pods, and vMotion a VM from a host in Pod1 to a host in Pod2.
With this video, we’ll look at how we can configure VMM integration from ACI to VMware vSphere. If you want to dive deeper and understand how to properly enable vMotion, check out our video on configuring your vMotion/vKernel networks to support vMotion! Here it is – CPOC Series: vMotion and vKernel configuration considerations between ACI … More CPOC Series: VMM integration from ACI to VMware vSphere
In order for vMotion to work properly, you have to enable a layer-2 segment between our VMware ESXi hosts to communicate (from a control-plane perspective). In this video, we’ll show you how to configure that communication.
Are you ready to explore MultiPod? With this video, we’re going to dive into MultiPod architecture, the design considerations, configuration for the IPN, and more!
Today, we’ll be talking about L3out connectivity to and from ACI. This video will not only walk through the configuration needed to establish Layer-3 connectivity, but we’ll also examine the routing tables for the ACI border leafs as well as the traditional devices on the outside of ACI.
Migration into ACI is always a hot-topic! In this video, we’ll take you through several must-see ACI migration scenarios where we do the following: Migrate a VM’s portgroup from a standard vSwitch portgroup to a an ACI DVS-managed portgroup. We’ll move the layer-3 gateway from the traditional network into ACI (and back to traditional, and … More CPOC Series: L2 and L3 Migration into ACI
In this video we explore the following: The configuration needed to establish a layer-2 connection between your traditional networking environment and the ACI Fabric Various ways to determine the location of our endpoints
In this writeup I will show you how to configure a Multi-Node Service Graph in Azure using Cloud ACI. We will insert multiple Service devices in-between the communication path of different workloads. In addition one of the great values of this that you will immediately notice is the horizontal scaling of Firewalls. Firewall Clustering is … More ACI/Cloud Extension Usage Primer (Azure) – Multi-Node Service Graph with Horizontal Firewall Scaling using vNET peering and hosting service devices in HUB vNET (overlay-2)
