Summary: What's the Best Alternative to Spanning Tree?


dclan-logos.JPGDriven largely by the changes brought on by the adoption of virtualization and cloud computing, the majority of IT organizations are currently re-thinking their data center LAN strategy.  To help IT organizations develop effective strategies, we will present a series of six monthly discussions that will involve six of the major data center LAN vendors.  Each discussion will begin with a somewhat high-level question on a topic that is relevant to the evolution of data center LANs.  During each month, we will ask one or two follow-on questions.

During each month, the sponsors will respond to the questions and will comment on the responses of the other sponsors.

Each vendor response and comment will focus on technology and design issues.  The vendors will not, for example, discuss products. We look forward to your participation in the discussions.

In August and September we had a quite spirited discussion, led by Jim Metzler, about the future of and alternatives to STP in the data center.

This summary contains both a "what we learned" summary from Jim and a printer-friendly and reader-friendly transcript of the discussion.

Nice.
