The increasing adoption of server virtualization in the data center is driving
greater consolidation, reducing power usage, and increasing both availability and
resiliency. However, server virtualization brings with it a set of operational challenges
on the networking side: from dealing with configuration challenges around
Virtual Machine (VM) switching to managing virtual machine mobility in the
network, to providing virtual machine location and inventory in the network.
Today, there are few tools available to the network administrator that provides
visibility, control and insight into the virtual machine environment.
