CPOC Series: Using the Host-based routing feature in ACI to optimize ingress routing for MultiPod

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

CPOC Series: L2 and L3 Migration into 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

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)

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)
