First i would like to thank all of you for your support, although this is probably my first query but i have read through other posts and have found very helpful tips. My query may not directly relate to Cumulus but i would appreciate any help and support you can provide me. I am from networking background with zero real world experience in server and applications etc. I have used vmware workstation alot, no vsphere. Done little programming through php/apache so this is all for me.
I need help understanding multi-tenancy, what is it and why we need Vxlan. I was going through a webinar of Dinesh/Ivan on operationalizing BGP in datacenter and this statement came up that for multi-tenancy, vxlan is required. I think i understand vxlan as overlay (Encapsulation technology) over L3 networks but then again its confusing. What we mean by multi-tenancy and what vxlan does for it to achieve ?
Any explanation that can help me is highly appreciated.
