This is my fourth post on the Pensando Systems architecture, and it is about the simplicity of deployment.
In the following video, I cover the installation of the DSC (Distributed Services Card), its operation as a regular NIC, the installation of the Pensando PSM (Policy and Services Manager), the card adoption from the PSM and the unlocking of all the value-added features. These include Telemetry, application identification, congestion monitoring, bidirectional ERSPAN, Firewall, HardGap, IPFIX, and VMware integration.
This fully distributed solution is ideal to implement services on the East-West traffic using neither appliances nor CPU cycles on the servers.
