Current networking switches are not aware of virtual machines (VM) and this can lead to incorrect network configurations that can expose virtual machines to service outages or security breaches, and prevent virtualization from reaching its full potential in creating cloud computing and dynamic data centers.
IBM System Networking has patented a unique solution to make the network virtual machine aware. The approach—called VMready®—extends the concept of virtualization into the network, so that network polices can be configured for virtual machines, rather than just for the physical switch port.
