DevOps for Networking: Pets or Cattle?
Many of us in the DevOps world are familiar with the pets vs. cattle metaphor* when talking about virtual machines. “Cattle” refers to the set of virtual machines in a cloud where all are alike and no single one is more important than another – if one, two or a handful go down and stop working, there are other VMs to take their place. On the other hand, “pets” are VMs that have been customized and optimized for running a specific workload, and when they get a bug or stop working for some reason, we spend the time and resources restoring them back to health. Software-defined networking (SDN) is DevOps for networking, and as such, along with network virtualization, is the basis of the cattle approach.
Let’s face it: failures happen, and they inevitably happen at the worst times. On top of this, networks are not easily disposable, as you can’t just spin up new virtual routers and toss them if they don’t behave. But if you're using an overlay, you can simulate failures much more easily using APIs. In this session, Midokura’s Adam Johnson will cover reconciling the “pet” and “cattle” strategies in networking, including some real world case study examples, so you can keep your workloads up and running like they should.
