In the first of this two-part virtualization training video series, we learned virtualization basics for networking professionals. In this second part, from the PrepLogic VMware video training series we will learn about VMware virtualization optimization or improving virtualization performance.
Networking professionals are not necessarily responsible for implementing server virtualization, but they are often charged with the task of networking for virtualization and ultimately for optimizing virtualization performance.
A number of strategies involved in virtualization optimization require an understanding of specific VMware settings. In this PrepLogic virtualization training video, learn about where to find -- and how to use -- these settings for CPU management, memory management, load balancing, traffic shaping and bandwidth control.
In the video, you will also learn how to utilize hardware resources more effectively by throttling network interface card (NIC) use and tightly managing the networks that run between virtual machines. You will also learn strategies for monitoring network and virtualization performance.
