Looking Ahead: Windows Server 2012 and Virtual Networking Environments

Virtualization has touched almost every element of the computing world: virtualization of servers, applications, storage, and user profiles. One area though that has remained tightly coupled with the physical fabric is the network. This tight bonding between the virtual machine’s network and the underlying physical network is an increasing challenge as organizations expand to multiple datacenters located in different geographical regions—as well as to the cloud. A tight bond between the virtual machine and the physical network makes migrating virtual machines between locations, which is a key capability in the new generation of hypervisors, a challenging exercise that requires changes to the guest operating system’s network configuration in traditional configurations. Additionally, tight integration between the virtual machine and the physical network can make environments that host multiple tenants very challenging, making isolation between tenants difficult. Virtual networking solves this mobility and isolation challenge by abstracting the network seen by virtual environments from the underlying physical fabric, allowing complete mobility and isolation as required for the virtual world. This session will cover in detail the challenges of virtual machine networking and look at solutions that can simplify your virtual networking environment through physical-virtual management consistency.
