With the emergence of private and public cloud architectures, the networking infrastructure required to support virtualization and the VM mobility associated with shared and dynamic cloud-based resources has become overly complex due to outmoded network designs based on Spanning Tree. Extreme Networks M-LAG Direct Attach architecture addresses this complexity by significantly simplifying network design and scaling performance.
With the release of ExtremeXOS version 12.5, Extreme Networks enables software-loadable support for Direct Attach architecture, network-level support of Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA), and M-LAG across its portfolio of high-performance BlackDiamond modular switches and Summit fixed stackable switches. Extreme Networks Direct Attach architecture enables the removal of virtual switches from the network, increasing performance, reducing cost and greatly simplifying management of the virtualized environment.
