The intended audience of this guide is those who are planning for, deploying, or maintaining a Data Center network leveraging a VXLAN data-plane with an EVPN control-plane.

The Overview and Nomenclature sections of this guide are intended to serve as a reference for, and cover in detail, the VXLAN dataplane and EVPN control-plane protocols. It is recommended that the reader has a sound comprehension of these two technologies prior to planning and deployment.

The content found within the topology and deployment sections assumes that the reader is comfortable with VXLAN and EVPN concepts. As such, detail around configuration, deployment recommendations, and validation will be provided. If the reader encounters a topic or concept not well understood within the topology and deployment sections, it is recommended that they refer back to the Overview and Nomenclature sections of this document.

Contemporary trends in data center architectures such as mobile applications and IoT present many new possible entry points for security breaches that are not protected by legacy security infrastructure. Installing a firewall at the Internet edge no longer meets the security control requirements for many companies. The complexity of providing secure access, protecting critical data and end-user privacy, and ensuring business continuity in these hyper-dynamic, high-performance compute and data management infrastructures is leading to a demand for a new approach in network and data security. Arista Macro-Segmentation Service addresses a growing gap in security deployment models wherein embedded security in the virtualization hypervisor addresses inter-VM communication and physical firewalls address at-depth protection for north-south traffic leaving the data center.
