Dell-VMware EVO:RAIL Hyper-Converged Solution
There’s a lot of interesting things going on in the industry with servers, storage, and networking: SDN (software defined networking), SDS (software defined storage), NFV (network function virtualization), SD-WAN (software defined WAN), hyper-convergence, and more and more focus on private / public / hybrid cloud just to name a few. I’ve written several prior posts on VMware NSX and SDN. In this short blog, I’ll focus on hyper-convergence specifically with the Dell-VMware EVO:RAIL solution. If you haven’t already, checkout the Dell Networking Dell-EVO:RAIL Reference Architecture for more detailed information. (more…)

Cumulus Linux on Dell Switches: Spine-Leaf Architecture & OSPF on Unnumbered Interfaces

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

In a prior blog, Cumulus Linux on Dell Networking Switches, I demonstrated how to install Cumulus Linux on a Dell S6000 switch and do some basic configuration. In this blog, I’ll demonstrate how to configure routing on Dell switches running Cumulus Linux. The example covered demonstrates a Spine-Leaf architecture with OSPF on unnumbered interfaces. In this example 2 x Dell S6000-ON and 2 x Dell S4810-ON switches [Cumulus Linux 2.1.1] are utilized. The lab setup is depicted by the network diagram below. (more…)
