OVM (SPARC) and vxlan

3375340Jan 26 2017

I'm looking at consolidating a legacy Solaris server estate using OVM with the OVM manager (on the SPARC platform).  Is it possible to do this in conjunction with the elastic virtual switch?  I've no previous experience using VXLAN on Solaris directly.  In the previous environments I've built the VXLAN was handled by the Cisco network infrastructure.  Is it possible to perform VXLAN layer 2 over a layer 3 IP network between data centres (2 separate OVM manager clusters) using Solaris?  Has anyone else out there got any experience of doing that?
