Create, Configure, and Manage Scalable Virtual Networks
VMware technology gives you the ability to create powerful virtual networks within VMware ESX hosts. VMware virtual networking uses data center physical networking features, standards, and principles to complement and extend existing data center networks to the virtual machine level of granularity and control.
|Basics of Virtual Networking||
Learn how the various components of a virtual network, including virtual Ethernet adapters, virtual switches, and VLANs work together to make virtualization possible.
|Basics of Creating and Using VLANs||
Learn the basics of VLANs and NIC teaming. VLANs allow you to scale your traffic types yet maintain complete isolation on the same physical networking hardware. VMware NIC teaming protects against single points of failure while load sharing over the available network hardware.
|Distributed Virtual Switches||
Learn about the advanced networking capabilities of the vSphere Distributed Switch. These features include Network I/O Control, Network vMotion and others.
White papers and technical papers on virtual networking topics with guidance on how to design and deploy virtual networking in the data center.
