Cisco Networkers Techtorials
The first day of Cisco Networkers in Brisbane Australia today. There was setting up the stand, unpacking some gear plus sitting in on the "Data Centre Design & Concepts TECDCT-3873" session.
The session went into some deep networking concepts. I did okay with lots but some was just to Networking geek for this virtualisation and Cloud guy. There was some great stuff on FCoE, UCS and DC design.
My main takeaway was how much pinning and specific pinning such as MAC pinning is being use in the DC networking of the future. Having spent a lot deep diving into UCS I see a lot of this day to day already, what never clicked to me before was that we have been using this a lot in the past because a VMware vSwitch uses MAC pinning.
Here is a quick video I did at the end of the day to summarise (no more 20 minute videos like I did at VMworld)!
Hopefully I will be able to show more snippets from the event each day.
