Today’s show debates network complexity vs. capability. Are we adding more features to our network but sacrificing simplicity? Or can anything in IT really be simple?
For example, do overlays such as VXLAN make networks more complex and sacrifice visibility, or do they provide new capabilities and help make networks more flexible?
Joining our debate is Dominick (Dom) Delfino, VP of worldwide sales and system engineering at VMware. VMware is sponsoring this episode.
We put Dom on the hot seat to talk about overlays and what they mean for complexity, visibility, and operations.
We also explore issues around troubleshooting, look at different approaches to designing networks, and discuss whether we need to start over with a new transport addressing scheme to meet today’s needs in the data center.
