Gandi U.S. COO Presents New Cloud Technology at DotScale Conference

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 30, 2013) -   Gandi, a leading domain name registrar and cloud-hosting provider, today announced that Gandi U.S. COO Thomas Stocking will be a featured speaker at the dotScale Conference in Paris on June 7. Stocking will discuss Gandi's work on Virtual Network over TRILL (VNT), a new multi-tenant network architecture for virtualized data center networks, at the one-day conference which is billed as a highly technical marketing-free event.

"dotScale as a no-B.S. conference reflects the Gandi no-B.S. business approach," said Thomas Stocking, COO, Gandi U.S. "I'm looking forward to presenting our latest development efforts and hearing about other cloud technology advancements."

Experimental evaluations show that VNT is able to support several hundreds of switches, thousands of physical nodes, and hundreds of thousands of tenants with only negligible overhead, all with very minimal configuration. VNT additionally permits backward compatibility with both traditional layer-2 equipment as well as newer hardware supporting TRILL.

VNT currently is deployed and running in BETA in the Gandi cloud infrastructure, with plans to release the code for this solution as open source later this year.
