Using Virtual Extensible Local Area Network

Virtual extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN) is a network virtualization technology that provides scalability and network isolation for virtual networks. VXLAN addresses the 4K limitation of virtual local area network (VLAN) and also reduces the demand of virtualization on physical infrastructure such as switches. For more information, see Chapter 3, Configuring Virtual Networks by Using Virtual Extensible Local Area Networks.
