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].
