Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) provides traffic isolation at layer 3 for routing, similar to how you use VLANs to isolate traffic at layer 2. VRF is a fundamental feature for a network OS which has been around for nearly 2 decades, and yet only recently gained a formal implementation for the networking stack. Cumulus Networks played a large role in making this happen and is continually improving the functionality of Linux. 

Tune in to our live webinar on Wednesday, August 29th at 10 am Pacific to hear from two Linux networking gurus — David Ahern (who implemented the kernel patches for VRF) and Donald Sharp (the lead maintainer for the FRRouting protocol suite) — who will give a refresher on the kernel / OS piece to VRF, discuss FRRouting and its latest features (such as VRF route leaking) and dive into how to use VRF for troubleshooting.
