Learn how Cisco FabricPath combines the benefits of Layer 2 Switching and Layer 3 Routing, allowing for the scalability and flexibility of Layer 2 while supporting traditional Layer 3 components such as optimal paths, equal cost multipath routing and a Time to Live (TTL) field.
This paper explains uplink strategies for traffic coming in and out of a Cisco Unified Computing Solution (UCS) chassis. An uplink can be Ethernet, Fibre Channel, or FCoE and is a physical connection on the FI that leaves the UCS domain directed away from the B Chassis.
Cisco Unified Computing Solution (UCS) is a very popular and powerful solution. Cisco continues to provide updated UCS management options for the full range of data center installations.
While there are differences between the IP Multicast configuration in the IOS and the Nexus OS, the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocol remains fundamentally the same. If you feel comfortable configuring Multicast in the IOS, you should be able to acclimate fairly easily to the changes in the Nexus OS.
Multicast Sparse Mode and its derivatives are supported in the Nexus OS. This white paper explains how it has been implemented in the Nexus platform to provide optimum performance in both virtual PortChannel and FabricPath environments.
John Barnes, Global Knowledge's Cisco Course Developer, discusses enhancements to our UCS Troubleshooting Boot Camp and suggestions for students in preparation for this course.
Organizations of all sizes have identified the benefits of cloud-based computing, whether it’s implementing a private or hybrid cloud on their own or accessing a public cloud through a service provider. Virtualization, a key component for building secure cloud environments, offers many advantages, including higher machine efficiency due to increased utilization, energy savings, and the flexibility to build or destroy virtual machines (VMs) on demand to meet changing organizational needs. Choosing open source virtualization over proprietary alternatives can significantly increase savings. However, an open source Linux Kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) offers several benefits to organizations beyond just cost savings. These benefits include security, reliability, availability, performance, and scalability. In this white paper, we’ll look at the relationship between open source virtualization and the cloud, and explore the security aspects of KVM hypervisor technology, especially in relation to how it leverages SELinux and related capabilities for secure public, private, and hybrid cloud performance.
