Connecting Clouds with Spine Internetworking

As more and more modern applications move to hybrid or public clouds, the placement of these applications strains network infrastructure. It only makes sense to leverage the massive investments of public cloud providers. The need for public clouds to interact directly with data center resources requires the distributed deployment of cloud applications and appropriate networking design for DCI (Data Center Interconnect). This goes beyond the typical data replication and management issues in the 1990-2000’s, where several tunneling solutions centered on the concept of a “pseudo-wire” emulating point-to-point Ethernet links over wide area networks emerged. Many of these initial older tunneling mechanisms unfortunately, (such as EoGRE, EoMPLS, EoATM) did not scale well. They were cumbersome to deploy, complex to troubleshoot and did not deliver the fault isolation between data centers, especially at mega-scale locations.
