The latest installment in the Ethernet Alliance’s webinar series, Plumbing for Clouds, highlights multi-tenancy and virtualization challenges in cloud computing, discusses multiple hypervisor solutions including VxLAN and NVGRE, and examines ongoing and emerging standardization efforts. Among topics that will be addressed during the hour-long session are network problems associated with multi-tenancy, available pre-standard solutions, and the applicability of IEEE 802.1 bridging standards in multi-tenancy settings.

WHY ATTEND: Webinar participants will explore an array of subjects, such as:

  • Problems and obstacles relating to multi-tenancy and virtualization
  • Pre-standard solutions currently available for deployment like VxLAN and NVGRE
  • Ongoing standardization efforts by IETF, IEEE, and other SDOs
  • Applicability of IEEE 802.1 and 802.3 standards, and possible extensions

“Creating data centers allowing multiple tenants to share physical resources facilitates greater efficiency, however, it also gives rise to new challenges like how to effectively allocate and interconnect these mutual resources,” said Manoj Wadekar, vice president, Ethernet Alliance. “By delivering an in-depth look at these hurdles and their potential remedies, the Ethernet Alliance aims to arm those individuals and organizations tasked with implementing multi-tenant solutions with the information and answers needed to succeed.”
