Border Gateway Protocol, open-source and it’s para-virtualized. No more proprietary software and hardware, you can run as many copies of this as needed on one physical XenServer machine. As a proof point, we used the Vyatta Open Source router to build out our Link Load Balancing network in Santa Clara. The Open Source Vyatta is running on a Dell server. We configured the BGP routing protocol, but could have have also configured OSPF or RIP and redistributed the routes. This configuration has been proven to outperform the incumbents, and is less costly by a wide margin. Reduce opex and capex and start rolling this out today.
What is needed:
- Vyatta Open Source Networking Software
- A Dell Server that supports Virtualization
- XenServer Enterprise 4.1
