So you have 20 hosts, 50 different port groups, network configurations all over the place. Wouldn’t it be nice to pull that all together? Into one distributed switch? Whether you are new to virtual networking, or would like to take a peek at VMware best practices then you need the vDS Best Practices guide…
VMware vSphere Distributed Switch (VDS) is a key virtual network platform that is scalable and extensible. It also provides advanced networking features and operational simplicity that helps build a flexible network for the cloud. The advanced networking features such as NIOC, LBT, NetFlow, and Port mirror are available on VDS and not on a virtual standard switch (VSS). This paper walks through the design process of incorporating VDS and its advanced features in different customer deployments.
