Study Notes

Cloud Networking Overview

  • Cloud networking is a type of IT infrastructure where some or all of an organization's network capabilities and resources are hosted in a public or private cloud platform.

Characteristics of Cloud Networking

  • Cloud networking offers connectivity to and between applications and workloads across clouds, cloud services, edge networks.
  • Companies can use on-premises cloud networking resources to build a private cloud network or use cloud-based networking resources in the public cloud, or a hybrid cloud combination of both.
  • Cloud networking is a Wide Area Network (WAN) that hosts users and resources and allows the two to communicate via cloud-based technologies.

Importance of Cloud Networking

  • Communication is vital to performance, security, and efficient management of hybrid cloud and multicloud environments.
  • Cloud networking is becoming the new enterprise core.
  • Designing, deploying, and maintaining a cloud network for performance, security, and efficiency is vital to companies using public cloud services.

Evolution of Cloud Networks

  • Current cloud networks have evolved to carry voice, video streams, text, and graphics between many different types of devices using the cloud.

Communication Elements

  • To communicate, we establish rules or agreements to govern the conversation, including an identified sender and receiver, an agreed-upon method of communicating, and a common language and grammar.

Digital Communication Elements

  • Devices or nodes serve as the sender and receiver.
  • The method of communicating includes the media or medium, channel, and common language and grammar (rules or protocols).
  • Messages or data are sent across a network by converting them into binary digits or bits, encoding them into a signal, and transmitting them over the appropriate medium.

Elements of a Cloud Network

  • Devices are used to communicate with one another.
  • The medium is how the devices are connected together.
  • Messages are the information that travels over the cloud medium.
  • Rules are how messages flow across the cloud network, governed by pre-defined protocols.
  • Cloud Environment Rules (Protocols) define the format and order of messages exchanged between communicating entities, as well as the actions taken on transmission or receipt of a message or event.

Network Hardware and Software

  • Network edge includes hosts (clients and servers) and servers often in data centers.
  • Network core includes interconnected routers, switches (Openflow, P4, etc.), and SDN Controllers.
  • Network software includes protocol layers, service primitives, and the relationship of services to protocols.
