Light Board Series: AHV Open vSwitch Networking – Part 1

I’m happy to announce the release of the first Light Board Videos I recorded with the Nutanix nu.school education team. These videos were a blast to record. The education team here at Nutanix is top notch and made my scribbles and rambling look and sound great! A video production team is an amazing asset to have sitting behind you in the office!

AHV provides an alternative to traditional hypervisors – and with that alternative comes a new virtual switch! This virtual switch bridges the VMs to the physical network.

To find more information about the video, including all of the rationale behind the decisions made – check out the Nutanix .NEXT Community blog I wrote describing AHV Host Networking.

Here’s the embedded first part of the video. I talk about Open vSwitch bridges and bonds, and how to connect the CVM and the User Virtual Machines to the 10gb or 1gb network interfaces. Follow the Nutanix .NEXT community blog, my site here, or the nu.school YouTube page to watch the rest of the series.

We’ll cover Load Balancing, Managed and Unmanaged VM networks, and more in the coming weeks!
