gr8 to hear this
lots of sdn start-ups creating havoc with various pastry solutions with less feature set [esp velocloud, cloudgenix etc] . hope alu-virtual router will have same features as 7500 service routers.

Re: 320G?
mnyhus, take a look at the new VNS solution that ALUs Nuage Networks team released at the same event the vSR solution came out. It's L3 virtualized routers that could be bunched up on a single x86 server in your DC. That might do the trick for you. Same IP code base as the SR family to so its robust and proven even though it's new.

Re: 320G?
 

 

I don't want 100G, I would prefer 10Gig, and the edge doesn't have routers it has switches that I am trying to get layer 3 functionality to.  But most of the virtual router vendors seem to be spending their time on massive bandwidth.  What about a datacenter where you have racks of customers who want managed layer 3 devices, I want an x86 platform to deliver those services.  Most vendors virtual routers take 1 CPU and around 2Gigs of memory so I get maybe 16 virtual routers out of one x86 server?  Just trying to get higher quantities of low speed routers on one x86 platform.

Re: 320G?
So you take your 100G interface, break it apart into many interfaces and run them into lots of little routers.  And this is a good idea because....?

Re: 320G?

get you into an aggregation box that aggregates the traffic to multiple smaller edge boxes

Re: 320G?
Depends on your need...what will lots of low speed routers do if you have 100G interfaces?

320G?
Im wondering who is going to use one x86 virtual router to pass 160Gig (who cares about single duplex)? when are the major players going to look inward and start planning on high quantities of lower speed virtual routers on one x86 platform?

Re: Old Is New Again
Ray, I agree. Nuage is a spin-in unit, which has also been a Cicso's strategy to dip the toe into the emerging technology pool. There is almost no benefit of spinoff and plenty of downside

Re: Old Is New Again
I think the question re spinoff was perhaps related to Nuage, the SDN unit within ALU.

But no, this was developed by the IP team.

Old Is New Again
ALU really got a chance here by taking advantage of JNPR managerial misstep. People thinking of spinoff (but why) miss the point that size matters to gain a foot in the door especially with newer technologies. Instead, it may not be a bad idea for end-to-end shops like CSCO and ALU to look at struggling specialists to fill their holes
