Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012 SP1 added a lot new networking features. Some of those can be difficult to understand and to configure. Microsoft published a nice poster showing all the network features and configuration steps.
For an overview of blog articles explaining those new features see this post.
This poster for VMM in System Center 2012 SP1 can help you:
- Plan your VMM networks using a logical view of VM networks, logical networks, and logical switches using a variety of configurations including VLAN-based configuration, no isolation, network virtualization, external networks, and with no virtual networking.
- Configure networking in VMM using configuration steps by roles including fabric administrators, tenant administrators, or by any user.
- Understand the network object model with diagrams of objects showing the relationships between objects.
- Extend VMM with options including using a vendor network-management server with extensions, connect a VM network to other networks by configuring the VM network with a gateway, and load-balance requests to VMs that make up a VMM service tier by adding a load balancer to VMM.
