Network virtualization is becoming increasingly significant as other forms of virtualization constantly evolve. It allows network aggregation and provisioning, combining different physical networks into a single virtual network, or breaking a physical network into multiple virtual networks that are isolated from each other.
In this session, you’ll learn about Red Hat’s network virtualization offering with Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, which includes Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. The session will cover:
- Traditional VLAN-based solutions and the move toward network overlays.
- Linux Bridge and Open vSwitch.
- Neutron, the OpenStack project focused on delivering networking as a service.
