Server virtualization solutions such as VMware Infrastructure are increasingly being deployed because of their effectiveness in addressing current challenges related to the cost and operation of the server environment in the data center. VMware addresses these challenges by running multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, thus increasing utilization and simplifying operations, which reduces both operating expenses (OpEx) and capital expenditures (CapEx). However, widespread deployment of virtual machines can stress data center infrastructure designed to support the traditional server model, where one application runs on one physical server. Cisco Catalyst switches and Cisco MDS 9000 family storage area network (SAN) switches address these new design requirements and support functions that deliver predictable application performance, security, segmentation, and availability for dense virtual machine environments.
