Virtual Machine Networking: Standards and Solutions

Virtual Machine Networking: Standards and Solutions


Server virtualization causes two major changes to the data center network: multiple OS images (virtual machines) are allowed to share the same physical server and I/O devices, and the relationship between an OS image and the network is now dynamic. These two changes are drastically different from traditional network operations.

In this resource, discover how you can network virtualization by either implementing a software switch as part of the hypervisor or enabling the switching function to be performed by an external switch. Learn the benefits of both approaches, and why using them as complementary options can help you achieve virtual networking success.
