Overview


The Cisco Virtual Topology System (VTS) is a standards-based, open-software, overlay management and provisioning system. It automates data center network-fabric provisioning for virtual and physical infrastructures. VTS offers a rich set of automation and programmability capabilities across the entire Cisco Nexus switching portfolio to enhance the deployment of cloud-based services. Together with the Cisco Virtual Topology Forwarder (VTF), this solution provides support for various combinations of physical and virtual overlay topologies.
