Oracle Virtual Networking offers advantages for virtualized server environments. With server virtualization, the bandwidth, network diversity, and storage performance requirements for the physical hosts can be accommodated by using multiple virtual NICs (vNICs) and virtual HBAs (vHBAs), all of which are delivered over a single pair of cables connecting to a purpose-built fabric. These resources can be added or changed on the fly without disrupting service, making it easy to virtualize new applications. The networking resources can also be configured such that they communicate directly across the fabric, allowing for unprecedented server-to-server performance.
In this article, we will examine guidelines and best-practices for deploying Oracle Virtual Networking in a virtualized environment. The recommendations focus on bringing the most simplicity, agility, and performance to the environment. This article is not a replacement for the official documentation; it is a supplement. It is assumed that readers are familiar with the administration of virtualized environments and the basic concepts of Oracle Virtual Networking.
