Network considerations for virtualizing your SMB

Tessa Parmenter Tessa Parmenter Profile: Tessa Parmenter


At Burton Group’s Catalyst conference 2009, Matt Lavallee of MLS Property Information Network presented a case study in enterprise virtualization on an SMB budget. Since server and storage virtualization are network problems, I thought I would speak to Lavallee himself to get his perspective on what networking professionals need to do to overcome the challenges of transitioning to a virtualized environment in a small and medium business (SMB).

After his session, LaVallee sat down with me in a video interview to speak to our audience about virtualizing SMBs. In our Q&A, you’ll learn some of the challenges in transitioning to a virtualized environment for SMBs, then understand how network managers and engineers need to change how they view their network to accommodate a virtualized infrastructure. Are there any tools that can help?
