Please, don't misread me. I don't think current generation of I/O modules on BDX8 are VXLAN hardware-ready (ie able to act as a VTEP). The current switches hardware-ready are Summit X670G2 and Summit X770.Once again, the need for BDX8 to act as a VTEP is not obvious. You either want it on the Hypervisor or the ToR. On the Core of the DC, this is not always mandatory.
I just noticed you placed this thread in both EXOS and EOS. As you mentionned the BDX8, I answered in an EXOS-way.We do have hardware-ready VXLAN platforms as well on EOS (S-Series and K-series if I'm not mistaken). The feature is not yet enabled. The nature of the CoreFlow2 ASIC powering these switches should allow for interesting capabilities.I would recommend you to contact your local Extreme SE to discuss this in further detail, under some NDA terms, maybe.
