Virtual Machine–Optimized Services
Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Switches are designed
to support virtualization and virtual machine
mobility by mapping virtual machines to network
profiles, allowing network services allocation at
per-virtual machine granularity centrally from
the unified fabric. This capability to move virtual
machines and network profiles together eases
manageability, increases isolation, and enables
consistent network and security policies.
