    SDN is driving network disaggregation, separating the control plane and data plane. Once the control plane and data plane are separated, functions such as high availability (HA) are distributed across data center nodes, gateways, and controllers, and they must work together to provide resiliency and up time. Traditional HA functionalities must all continue such as redundant links, nodes, automatic detection and failover, non stop forwarding, non-stop routing, and last but not least, in-service software upgrade (ISSU). HA is non-negotiable for network operations, as end user satisfaction is determined by up time.

    In this session you'll learn how you can further raise the HA bar over what is provided with most deployments today. We will cover:

    • How to provide all the traditional HA that your users have come to rely on
    • How you can significantly improve control plane HA by leveraging predictive restarts and automatic recovery
    • How L2-L4 distributed forwarding is enabled across all compute nodes
    • How to fortify the gateway to maximize up time
    • How to contain data center breaches such as DDOS attacks that could bring down an entire data center

    We will cover some best practices from live production deployments and share the gotchas with the audience!
