Multitenancy on Dell Networking Switches via VRF-lite

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Check out the Dell Networking: Multitenancy with VRF-lite white paper. I describe in detail how multitenency can be achieved on supported Dell Networking switches via Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF).

In the diagram directly below, each color represents a different customer tenant utilizing the same IP address space (overlapping IP addresses). Such a setup can also be useful for development and testing where traffic isolation is needed; the overlapping IP addresses can be used for ensuring consistency between each development/test environment.
