Q&A: Preparing the Data Center for Virtualization and Cloud Computing

The first objective is to provide quality of service to virtual machines that is consistent with what we have been able to provide in manually configured, single-application environments. The second objective is to provide persistence of connectivity so that when a virtual machine moves between compute nodes, the connections and resources within the network will automatically follow the virtual machine to its new compute location. And the third objective is to provide tools for monitoring the performance levels being delivered and reporting back to end users so they can be sure they’re actually receiving what they’re paying for.
