Network Virtualization and Resource Control Task Map

The following table describes tasks for configuring a virtual network and implementing resource controls on the network.

For Instructions
Design and plan a virtual network on a single host
Consolidate network services and applications offered by the local network onto a single host.

This scenario is especially useful for consolidators and service providers.

Design and plan for a private virtual network on a single host
Run a virtual network that does not allow public access.

This scenario is recommended for system administrators who need to run a development environment.

Provide bandwidth management and resource control for systems on a per-interface basis.
Isolate, prioritize, and assign a specific amount of interface bandwidth for packet traffic.

This scenario is useful for systems that handle heavy traffic for particular services, such as a web service or a database server.
