Introducing Netvisor OS Foundational Objects
A fabric is defined as a distributed architecture based on a collection of compute clustering techniques to present an open, standard-based Ethernet fabric as one logical switch. Every node shares the same view of the fabric including MAC and IP addresses, connections, and application flows.
When you add switches to the fabric, all switches are under a single management domain which is highly available through multiple link aggregation and load balancing between network resources.
The fabric performs a classic database 3-phase commit for configuration changes. All members of the fabric must accept the configuration changes before the change is made in the fabric. Figure 1 Fabric Architecturedisplays the fabric architecture of Netvisor OS.
