Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC)

1:40:00 Free items Introduction to Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDC)

This webinar describes the concepts of Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC) including software-defined storage, network connectivity and network services using VMware NSX/VSAN as a real-life example.

Technology track

4:55:00 Free items Networking in Private and Public Clouds

This 5-hour webinar describes the networking requirements of various cloud services (from infrastructure virtualization to software-as-a-service solutions) and designs you can use to build data center networks that support them.

The webinar focuses on IaaS networking scalability and helps you select the most appropriate architecture for your environment based on the number of physical servers and tenants you envision in your environment.

2:37:00 Free items Overlay Virtual Networking

This vendor-agnostic webinar briefly revisits the networking needs of server virtualization and IaaS cloud computing and describes the benefits and drawbacks of overlay virtual networks as compared to traditional VLAN-based solutions.

The second half of the webinar dives deep into packet walks -- from simple layer-2 overlay networks to distributed layer-3 forwarding.

2:45:00 Free items Virtual Firewalls

This webinar will walk you through the virtual firewalls taxonomy, describe the major architectural options, and illustrate typical use cases. The webinar assumes familiarity with virtual networking concepts and VMware networking solutions.

13:00:00 VMware NSX Technical Deep Dive

This webinar describes VMware NSX principles, architecture and components, including overlay virtual networking, physical-to-virtual gateways, network services and security.

2:37:00 Cisco ACI Introduction

This webinar describes Cisco ACI from multiple viewpoints, introduces the reasons we migrated from STP/vPC to VXLAN and overlay networks, gives you an overview of Cisco ACI architecture and its components, and introduces the challenges of APIC controller resilience and scalability.

The second half of the webinar describes more complex Cisco ACI architectures, from stretched fabrics to multi-site deployments.

12:52:00 Cisco ACI Deep Dive

This webinar covers advanced Cisco ACI topics from infrastructure components and protocols to managed objects, VMM integration, and automation... not from a merely theoretical point of view, but from a perspective of a networking engineer with hands-on ACI design, installation and deployment experience.


Overlay Virtual Networking and SDDC

The second digital book in the Software Defined Networking series describes the overlay virtual networking principles, architectures, solutions, and their applications in software-defined data centers (SDDC).

Older Free Webinars

2:06:00 Free items VMware NSX Architecture Overview

This overview webinar was created at the launch of VMware NSX in 2013, and describes the principles of overlay virtual networking, architecture of VMware NSX-V and NSX-MH (both now obsolete), and NSX principles of operation.

We're continuing to offer this free webinar because it might still give you relevant insight into VMware NSX fundamentals. If you're looking for NSX-T or NSX-V details, check out the VMware NSX Technical Deep Dive webinar.

Workshop Slide Decks

Standard subscription includes access to slide decks of several SDDC-related workshop.

Software-Defined Data Center Workshop

This workshop explains how to how to design a software-defined data center, describes leading products (VMware NSX and Cisco ACI) and documents their benefits and shortcomings.

VMware NSX, Cisco ACI or EVPN Fabric (Workshop)

This fast-paced workshop will give you an overview of VMware NSX, Cisco ACI, and EVPN fabrics, describe the underlying technologies, and help you figure out the planning and design options you'll face while deploying them in your environment.

3:00:00 Virtual Firewalls and Appliances Workshop

This workshop walks you through the virtual firewalls taxonomy, describes the major architectural options, and illustrates typical use cases with products from vendors like Cisco, Microsoft and VMware.

Free items Designing Scalable Web Applications

This workshop gives you some of the background knowledge you need to design, develop and deploy a web-based application that will scale to millions of users.

It was delivered several times as a 4-month course at University of Ljubljana between 2012 and 2015, but never recorded as the university rules forbade lectures in foreign languages (including English).
