The lab is a multi-node topology that consists of two racks with two dual-homed servers connected with a leaf-spine network.
This is a "Cumulus In The Cloud" topology designed to demonstrate some of the advanced features of Cumulus Linux. It is based on the original CITC demo environment with the only exception being the reduced number of spine switches (2 instead of 4). The topology can be spun up fully provisioned with the following two configuration options:
- EVPN Multi-Homing -- an EVPN-VXLAN environment with layer 2 extension, layer 3 VXLAN routing and VRFs for multi-tenancy that uses a multicast underlay for VXLAN packet replication and does not use MLAG or CLAG.
- EVPN Symmetric Mode -- an EVPN-VXLAN environment with layer 2 extension, layer 3 VXLAN routing, VRFs for multi-tenancy and MLAG/CLAG for server multi-homing.
Once up, each node can be accessed via ssh using its hostname (automatically populated in your
/etc/hosts file) and the default credentials
