If you want to study, build, or simply validate your thinking about modern cloud native data center networks, this is your book. Whether you're pursuing a multitenant private cloud, a network for running machine learning, or an enterprise data center, author Dinesh Dutt takes you through the steps necessary to design a data center that's affordable, high capacity, easy to manage, agile, and reliable.

Ideal for network architects, data center operators, and network and containerized application developers, this book mixes theory with practice to guide you through the architecture and protocols you need to create and operate a robust, scalable network infrastructure. The book offers a vendor-neutral way to look at network design. For those interested in open networking, this book is chock-full of examples using open source software, from FRR to Ansible.

In the context of a cloud native data center, you'll examine:

  • Clos topology
  • Network disaggregation
  • Network operating system choices
  • Routing protocol choices
  • Container networking
  • Network virtualization and EVPN
  • Network automation
