In his recent blog post, Toby Owen hinted at future technology to extend our cloud into customers’ data centers. We’re working toward that end, but in the near term we want to allow our customers to create their own networks in our public cloud. To accomplish this we’re adopting cutting edge technology around Software Defined Networks (SDN). I’ll discuss our implementation of SDN more in future blogs, but for those of you at Interop this week in New York, Toby and I will present an overview of how we are using OpenFlow-based logical switches in our hypervisors. (Our session, “Taking Cloud to the Final Frontier – SDN and Network Virtualization – Presented by Rackspace Hosting,” is Thursday, October 4 at 11:00 a.m. eastern.) Managed by a Nicira controller, these switches allow users to create logical networks between compute instances.
