Data Center Network Design in a VMware environment

June 26, 2008 at 12:00 pm PST

As customers look to expand the level of server virtualization in their data centers, they often come back to us and ask what the impact will be on their data center network. This happens often enough that we locked some of our smart people and some of VMware’s smart people in a room and they came up with this design guide for deploying VI 3 and ESX Server 3.x in a Cisco network environment. To quote the introduction:”This document is intended for network architects, network engineers, and server administrators interested in understanding and deploying VMware ESX Server 3.x hosts in a Cisco data center environment.”If you have VMware in your environment, I highly suggest you check it out. The document offers comprehensive coverage of the”how it works” aspects of networking and storage and solid design best practices in a VMware environment.
