How VXLAN-based Ethernet IP Solves Cloud Computing Network bottlenecks
Network virtualization technologies running over optimized Ethernet IP are enabling cloud computing data centers to expand and support the growing amount of internet traffic. Hyperscale cloud data centers are driving requirements for new network overlay protocols such as Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) running over Ethernet. This white paper discusses in detail the benefits of VXLAN and how it can be used to overcome network subnet limits as well as the impact of VXLAN to Ethernet IP implementations. It also describes how IP supporting VXLAN enables a new class of SoCs optimized for next-generation network virtualization.
