Hello, community!

What is the recommended HCS SDN solution? What are the advantages and disadvantages of network solution?

Thanks!

Hi Jingoba!

The software SDN solution (Region Type I) is recommended for HCS 6.5. Comparison between the network types is as follows:

Item

Sub-Item

Region Type I

Region Type II

Functions

Network service capability

Provides basic network automation   capabilities and supports VXLAN.

Provides basic network automation   capabilities and supports VXLAN.

Resource pool access capability

Provides KVM, VRM, and BMSs and supports   a large number of nodes (A maximum of 20 PoDs are supported. Each PoD   supports 512 nodes.)

Provides KVM, VRM, and BMSs and supports   only 512 nodes.

Network O&M capability

Uses stream outage detection to demarcate   virtual and physical networks. No path detection or loop detection is   available.

Provides unified display of virtual and   physical networks, path detection, connectivity check, and loop detection.

Network forwarding path

Forwards north-south traffic from network   node clusters.

Forwards north-south traffic from switch   gateways and firewalls.

Network specification expansion

Expands network node server clusters. The   router, NAT, or LB cluster supports a maximum of 16 nodes.

Expands multiple groups of fabrics by   purchasing hardware devices.

Cost   comparison

Switch and server resource usage

Reuses aggregation and access switches or   uses third-party ones.

More than two servers need to be added as   network node clusters. When multiple PoDs are deployed, each PoD requires two   servers as L2 GWs. In addition, the number of bare metal GW server clusters   can be increased based on the scale of BMSs. Multiple groups of bare metal   GWs are supported.

Purchases new access and aggregation   switches and configures two firewalls and load balancers for each physical   network egress.

Deployment   modes

IT and network deployment modes

Supports independent procurement of   network devices, as well as virtual resources and cloud platforms.

Supports unified procurement of network   devices, virtual resource pools, and cloud platforms.

O&M   modes

Considers the customer's organizational   structure.

Supports unified O&M of networks and   IT devices.

Supports separate O&M of networks and   IT devices.

Project   delivery

Network capability delivery

IT takes the lead. There are many private   cloud projects which require the service and delivery personnel.

Enterprise Network takes the lead,   including the subsequent life cycle management.

 

The differences between the two network types are as follows:

Feature

Software SDN (Region Type I)

Hardware SDN (Region Type II)

Non-SDN (Region Type III)

Access to the ManageOne Operation Plane

Basic service

Subnet service

×

Port   QoS   service

×

×

SNAT

×

×

Public service   zone access service

×

×

Direct   Connect/route passthrough service

×

√ (In only   Region Type I)

VPC peering   connection

×

×

Security group

×

VPN

×

Virtual firewall   (VFW)

×

EIP

×

ELB

Cloud firewall   (microsegmentation)
