The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, today announced registration is now open for its first Chinese-language webinar hosted in China at http://www.cnw.com.cn/bjjt/. Slated for Wednesday, January 16 at 14:00 (GMT+8), the “Ethernet 311: Plumbing for Clouds: Overlay Protocols for Multi-Tenancy” webinar will be presented in Chinese.
The Ethernet Alliance’s Plumbing for Clouds webinar highlights multi-tenancy and virtualization challenges in cloud computing. Addressing China’s rapidly growing population of technology-centric enterprises and end users, the session discusses multiple hypervisor solutions including VxLAN and NVGRE, and examines ongoing and emerging standardization efforts. Among discussion topics to be covered are network problems associated with multi-tenancy, available pre-standard solutions, and the applicability of IEEE 802.1 bridging standards in multi-tenancy settings.
WHY ATTEND: Webinar participants will explore an array of subjects, such as:
- Problems and obstacles relating to multi-tenancy and virtualization
- Pre-standard solutions currently available for deployment like VxLAN and NVGRE
- Ongoing standardization efforts by IETF, IEEE, and other SDOs
- Applicability of IEEE 802.1 and 802.3 standards, and possible extensions
“Creating data centers allowing multiple tenants to share physical resources facilitates greater efficiency, however, it also gives rise to new challenges like how to effectively allocate and interconnect these mutual resources,” said Manoj Wadekar, chief technologist, QLogic, and technical chair Ethernet Alliance. “By delivering an in-depth look at these hurdles and their potential remedies, the Ethernet Alliance aims to arm those individuals and organizations tasked with implementing multi-tenant solutions with the information and answers needed to succeed.”
Hosted by the Ethernet Alliance, Mr. Bruce Bateman, Networking Evangelist APJ, Dell, Inc., will present the Plumbing for Clouds webinar, originally delivered in North America in August 2012. Mr. Bateman has a wealth of practical experience in nearly every aspect of IT. In his role at Dell, Bruce helps customers understand emerging technologies like Cloud, Big Data, Software Defined Networking/OpenFlow, Virtualization, advanced data center design, and network architectures such as Distributed Core.
WHEN: The Ethernet Alliance webinar Plumbing for Clouds: Overlay Protocols for Multi-Tenancy will be presented on January 16 and is free of charge. The webinar will also be archived for on-demand viewing at the Ethernet Alliance website.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND: The Ethernet Alliance’s Plumbing for Clouds webinar is ideally suited for CIOs, network architects, data center managers, or any individual or organization facing the challenges of multiple tenants sharing common resources.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
