SUMMARY

As you have seen, networking is a deep subject and VMware did much to improve the virtual networking in vSphere 5. The major feature changes focused heavily on the Distributed Switches (Port Mirroring, LLDP support, load-based teaming, and NetFlow), but VMware also simplified our Standard Switches by incorporating many of the commonly used “advanced” settings into the GUI. As you will see in our next chapter, there are some aspects of networking that interrelate with storage (iSCSI/NFS). Also, you will see why vSphere 5 is being hailed as the storage-centric release of vSphere. Compared to the changes in networking, VMware has nearly redefined how storage is handled in virtualization.
