VMM 2012 SP1 Networking Poster

With SP1 for System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager networking is hugely extended.

Many new features are added and others are enhanced. Since it raises many questions from the field Microsoft has made an awesome poster about it which explains it in detail.

This poster can be downloaded from here and for the lucky ones visiting MMS 2013, a printed version can be collected as well!

As Microsoft states:’

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.
