About This Solution Guide


This Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution focuses on the use of Ethernet VPN (EVPN) and Virtual Extensible VLAN (VXLAN) over a bare-metal server (BMS)-based network. Such a network offers data center operators a way to create an external BGP (EBGP)-based IP fabric underlay, which provides a solid foundation for the EVPN and VXLAN overlay. By implementing this solution, telcos and data center operators can scale their cloud-enabled business, migrate legacy architectures to more flexible and modern architectures, compete with emerging Web services providers, and manage costs all at the same time.

This guide provides an overview of the IaaS: EVPN and VXLAN solution, the solution requirements, design considerations, and how the solution was implemented by the Juniper Networks solutions team. It also provides an example of how to configure the network and verify that the solution is working as expected.
