  • Is virtual networking the link to end-to-end management?

    Network virtualization has lagged behind server and storage virtualization, which means “single-pane-of-glass management and monitoring” in the data center is still on the horizon. Although the advent of software-defined networking (SDN) may make vir... 

  • The new generation of network management and monitoring

    Network management and monitoring have grown from being similar operations that were at times challenging to get distinct views of, to a sophisticated monitoring and management toolset to provide real-time performance data. While these requirements h... 

  • Hybrid Cloud networking falls short, but not for long

    As if network management isn’t hard enough, now engineers must find ways to manage physical networks, virtual networks and SDN environments. In this edition of Network Evolution, we’ll explore strategies to manage across physical and virtual n... 

  • The new network: SDN gets real

    As the software-defined networking (SDN) hype is replaced by real products, this edition of The New Network will look at the current state of SDN testing, development and deployment, as well as how SND and data center network fabrics complement each ... 

  • Are SDN solutions the answer to private cloud bottlenecks?

    Networks are bottlenecks in the private cloud. Server and storage technologies have evolved into pooled resources that cloud administrators can spin up on the fly, but networks remain far too manual. To be more agile, networks must be virtualized, an... 

  • Data center fabric wars

    Check out the August edition of the Network Evolution E-Zine to read about the battle of network fabric vs. software-defined networking (SDN), and learn whether these technologies are competitive or complementary. You'll also learn about deep packet ... 

  • Network security in a world of mobile workers

    In this edition of Network Evolution E-zine, we explore how VDI is solving many bring-your-own-device (BYOD) challenges, and provide examples of how this strategy has seen success within industries including retail, healthcare and finance. Also insid... 

  • Desktop virtualization strategies for network managers

    Do you need to get up to speed on the latest desktop virtualization strategies? In this handbook, uncover the issues and problems that desktop virtualization and VDI can present to the network, and how you can prepare your network for these changes s... 

  • How networks are adapting to virtualization

    This Network Evolution E-Zine discusses the ins and outs of virtualization and provides insight into how today’s networks are adapting. Uncover information focusing on systems vs. networking at the virtual edge and network diagnostics that can see th... 

  • SDN controller (software-defined networking controller)

    An SDN controller is an application in software-defined networking (SDN) that manages flow control to enable intelligent networking. SDN controllers are based on protocols, such as OpenFlow, that allow servers to tell switches where to send packets.

About Network Virtualization Implementation

Network virtualization implementation involves virtual instances of network components such as virtual switches (vSwitches) and virtual NICs that are used alongside network virtualization software to better manage a server virtualization environment and enable cloud networks. In this section, you will learn about network virtualization and network control software that is used to create private VLANs, as well as distributed virtual switching and other forms of network virtualization strategies.
