LISP In The News...

19 May 2015

New Whitepaper Posted: LISP validated design for data center migrations... LISP can significantly simplify and accelerate data center migrations. Customers who have adopted the solution presented on this whitepaper were able to execute a DC migration with a much lower risk and much faster. In fact some of them expect to reduce the migration window by up to 95%. The solution described on the whitepaper makes use of LISP running on Cisco’s ASR 1000 routers. The benefits delivered include:

  • * Ability to de-couple the server migration activities (planning, affinity group migration, schedules, cut-overs etc.) from network constraints.
  • * IP address mobility: IP address, subnet mask, default gateway and hostname of migrated servers do not need to change.
  • * Small migration waves: solution enables even single server migration (if required), or the migration of a small group of servers.
  • * Lower hardware cost than alternative solution, just four devices required for a two DC migration.

For full details of the solution, including detailed configuration and deployment considerations, please refer to the whitepaper. To download the whitepaper, click [HERE].

Locator/ID Separation Protocol LISP

LISP is a network architecture and set of protocols that implements a new semantic for IP addressing. LISP creates two namespaces and uses two IP addresses: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), which are assigned to end-hosts, and Routing Locators (RLOCs), which are assigned to devices (primarily routers) that make up the global routing system.
