Robots In The Cloud IaaS Production and Design

Networking and the Cloud

For anyone looking to venture into cloud network design, I figured I would post the design for one of our CloudStack pod switching clusters. This is a great start for redundant switching builds, and a decent reference for how the various networks interact i a physical capacity.

As always:

RED == Public WAN traffic

BLUE == Management and Storage traffic

GREEN == Guest network traffic

YELLOW == Out-of-band network for managing the networking gear

Enjoy!
