As modern, open and software-driven networks change how cloud providers and enterprises approach the data center, the need to simplify management and increase efficiency across virtual and physical network environments has never been greater.Dell EMC SmartFabric Director, the industry’s only fabric management platform co-engineered by VMware and Dell Technologies, enables smarter fabrics and end-to-end management by connecting the physical world with the virtual world via an intent-based provisioning model.With SmartFabric Director 2.0, we take that vision further with the addition of capabilities that bridge the gap between the hardware-defined physical network and the software-defined virtual network in three key areas:Simplicity: Reduce the steps to deploy a fabric while providing a single point for fabric lifecycle management.Openness: Support for open standards to maximize flexibility, interoperability and technology investment.Consistency: Apply a consistent policy and automation framework across physical and virtual environments to reduce complexity while increasing efficiency.Now, with the introduction of SmartFabric Director 2.0, you have even more capabilities designed to make centralizing management across virtual and physical network infrastructures simpler, more efficient and scalable than ever.Multiple Overlay Support with BGP EVPN SmartFabric Director 2.0 introduces BGP EVPN to VXLAN routing and interoperability between multiple vendors’ systems. By decoupling the underlay network (physical topology) from the overlay network (virtual topology), this new capability gives you Layer 2/Layer 3 connectivity between endpoints and across data centers while maintaining a consistent underlay architecture.Increased Flexibility with Support for Bare Metal WorkloadsSmartFabric Director 2.0 adds support for bare metal workloads to enable a combination of virtualized and non-virtualized workloads. Some workloads such as Database Servers are sometimes not virtualized for increased performance and Smart Fabric Director now enables these workloads to interconnect with virtualized infrastructure.Leverages Latest VMware ReleasesSmartFabric Director 2.0 takes advantage of the latest VMware releases, including vSphere 7.0 and NSX-T 3.0. Integration with VMware vSphere enables auto learning of virtual networks and fabric provisioning, including auto-detection of ESXi hosts and LAGs. NSX-T integration auto-provisions the fabric/underlay correctly for the NSX-T overlay and provides support for transport VLAN and Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) consistency checks.Increased ScalabilitySmartFabric Director 2.0 doubles the number of switches from 32 to 64 for greater scalability and flexibility in data center environments.New Automation Features and MoreImprovements also include enhancements to the backup-restore UI and management features that create a more user-friendly experience. Of course, the new capabilities build upon the existing features, including streaming telemetry from fabric switches for real-time visibility into operational health status.Explore SmartFabric Director 2.0 at VMworld Online On-DemandSee for yourself how SmartFabric Director 2.0 bridges the gap between the hardware-defined physical network and the software-defined virtual network.Join us at for SmartFabric Director: Creating an SDDC Network Fabric in Minutes with Ram Haridasa, Sr. Consultant, Product Management, Dell EMC and Bopaiah Puliyanda, Senior Product Line Manager, VMware.

Christopher Cali, a 2014 alum and current graduate student of Notre Dame, recently started a company called Better Cheaper Bus LLC, which offers affordable transportation for Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students to both the O’Hare and Midway airports in Chicago.“Final steps with the University are being taken to have the buses use McKenna Hall as a departure point,” Cali said.Better Cheaper Bus identifies as a third party transportation provider with the central goal of making transportation more efficient as well as more affordable to students. Cali said the idea came to him when one of his friends experienced frustration with the transportation to Midwestern airports.“My friend, Rory Dunne, took a trip back home to Ireland, and [when he] came back here, [he] had a 5-hour layover using the current transportation service,” Cali said.Cali said it was his friend’s personal inconvenience that helped him to conceive the idea of Better Cheaper Bus. Dunne gave him the inspiration to start forming this small company within a short time frame.“It was the week before Thanksgiving … that we started talking about it,” Cali said. “Through interviews with students, we got a lot of good feedback to make it more efficient.”Cali said aside from benefitting students, Better Cheaper Bus also benefits the South Bend community by donating 20 percent of its profits to the South Bend Center for the Homeless.“When we were thinking about the business, we realized it typically fell around certain holidays,” Cali said. “We figured that we talk a lot about social responsibility, and the Center came up in our minds really quickly.”This donation is the reason behind the business’ slogan, “Ride With a Cause.” The money donated to the South Bend Center for the Homeless will help to finance the holiday dinners during the Christmas season.“Starting a business isn’t easy, and we’re learning a ton,” Cali said. “We circumvented difficulties by getting the word out early, talking to students and creating a “Request Time” button on our website.”Cali said the input of students is crucial to the entire entrepreneurial process and led to the “Request Time” button and student interviews. Through student feedback, Better Cheaper Bus could decide which times of year service would assist students the most.“We’re thinking of running it during Christmas … spring break and at the end of spring semester,” Cali said.Better Cheaper Bus aims to provide a more efficient option for transportation, and Cali also hopes to make the students’ experiences more comfortable and enjoyable.“We’re offering WiFi; we have phone chargers on board and hopefully a DVD player. All the while, you’re donating 20 percent of what you spend to charity,” Cali said. “It’s a simple way to give back without necessarily lifting a finger.”Tags: affordable transportation, better cheaper bus, better cheaper bus LLC, christopher cali, LLC, midway, ohare
