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…)

Dell Networking Extends Multipathing Capabilities with VLT Routing

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Dell Networking recently released enhancements to their VLT multipathing technology in FTOS 9.2 now available on S4810, S4820T, and Z9000. For a quick primer on Dell’s VLT technology read my prior blog post here. The most noticeable enhancement is the support of layer 3 routing protocols over VLT. Additional enhancements include the ability of VLT peers to synchronize ARP entries learned from non-VLT interfaces, support for IPv6, and the ability to synchronize multicast routing tables between peer VLT ports. In this blog, I use 4 x Dell S4810s [FTOS 9.2] and 1 x Dell S60 (for a management switch) [FTOS 8.3.3.9] to demonstrate routed VLT.
