Virtual network switch problems can be problematic when networking for virtualization, leaving network admins to manage a new layer of virtual network switches (vSwitches). This Search Networking report discusses common virtualization networking problems and solutions to provide better manageability, policy enforcement, and security in virtualization.


"While server virtualization is seen as the domain of systems and data center teams, networking professionals must manage a new layer of virtual network switches (vSwitches) that are built into hypervisors and pose a host of serious management problems. Engineers may find solutions to those problems in a series of network edge virtualization technologies that include distributed virtual switches, virtual bridging and I/O virtualization. The goal of all of these virtualization networking technologies is to provide better manageability, policy enforcement, security and scalability in virtualization."
