Deploying a Layer 3 CLOS Fabric with Cumulus Linux Switches and Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects

Richard Kiles, St. Networking Consultant, GDT
This technical design guide from GDT System Engineer Richard Kiles provides a detailed overview and design recommendations for integrating network switches running Cumulus Linux with Cisco UCS Fabric Interconnects. The examples presented provide a highly available and redundant network fabric to support systems and services residing within a Cisco UCS compute environment. This design guide also outlines a framework for interconnecting multiple pods of UCS compute environments using Cumulus Linux switches configured in a Layer 3 CLOS fabric, providing a cost effective solution for an immensely scalable and predictable network architecture.
