Multi-Chassis Link Aggregation

5th Aug 2014

Modern terabit scale aggregation, transport and data center networks are powering businesses through a new generation of business critical, time sensitive high bandwidth applications and services. Software-defined networking, data center virtualization, cloud computing, high-performance computing, data warehousing, and disaster recovery strategies, among others prevalent in the current networking environment, are prompting a whole new set of bandwidth demands on the data center network infrastructure.

Overview of ZebOS Technology

ZebOS-XP® supports Shortest Path Bridging (SPB)

In the last decade, traditional Ethernet model has evolved from providing connectivity in Local Area Networks, offering simple PLUG and PLAY networking to providing quality of service guarantees in carrier grade networks with fully featured OAM capabilities.

Latest technological advances in server virtualization has re-shaped the data center traffic flows, increasing bandwidth densities and pushing conventional data center networks to brink. Virtual machine migrations across racks within a data center or between different geographic data centers opened up the need for extending layer 2 networks.

Ensuring redundancy – ZebHA Overview

High availability (HA) is a system design approach to ensure a pre-agreed level of operational performance by minimizing the system downtime. A highly available system ensures a level of resiliency that can provide continued service when a component or the node fails. High availability does not mean that components will never fail, but it ensures that the system is available when the user needs it even if one or more components fail.

ZebOS provides a rich set of middleware abstractions layers for applications to develop HA code without worrying about the underlying implementation.
