April Meeting: Using VXLAN to network virtual machines, containers and other fun things

Date: Tuesday, April 19th
Time: 7:30pm
Location: UVU Business Resource Center

John Nielsen will present about VXLAN, a relatively new protocol for transporting a large number of virtual Ethernets over any IP network. It draws from and improves upon both VLANs and point-to-point network tunnels. Once a “virtual tunnel end point” is configured for one or more VXLANs it discovers the other end points and hosts within each network automatically. This presentation will introduce VXLAN in greater detail, compare it to VLANs and traditional L2-over-L3 tunnels, and describe and demonstrate several use cases for VXLAN on Linux and BSD including containers, virtual machines, and wireless bridging.
