Nicira NVP network controller
Networking is evolution and often going toward automation and virtual networking. Looking at the available resources we can say that there is a lot of stuff to read about Cisco Nexus platform and the VXLAN protocol. Comparing this with the SDN vendors like Nicira or Midokura the situation is not the same. There isn't available open documentation for the products. There is only a few videos on YouTube that demonstrate what the products do and how they look like.
Below are some of the videos I came across that gives you a glitch into the Nicira NVP cluster.
Profile: Curious systems engineer interested in many of the IT technologies but especially in cloud systems and network engineering. A quick learner who likes to tinker and who often spent time researching and trying new technologies for personal and business benefit.
Especially interested in: cloud, openstack, network, cloud network, systems architecture, programming, distributed computing, web, clustering, ha, replication, load balancing, virtualization, automation, scalability
Please note that the code available here is only for demonstration purposes. If you want to be serious, you'll have to make it more robust and integrate it. Also, the description is by no means a definitive reference on any of the subjects, but rather the result of my experimentation. Feel free to report any bugs or errors you find in the code or otherwise in the articles. Thanks
