USing Separate VLANs for each Traffic in Vmware
Posted on 2014-03-31
If we decide to create separate VLANs for each traffic type in Vmware, would that really possible. Knowing that the most common Traffic types are:
- VM Network
- Management Network (host to host communication and host to Vcenter) including Management Traffic Host VMHA
- ISCSi storage Traffic.
If my ESX hosts are in Vlan 10, then if I put each traffic type in separate VLAN how can that be fast if they are in different VLANs than ESX Hosts…knowing that pretty much every traffic involve ESX hosts.
I believe the purpose of Traffic type separation into different VLANs , is performance in addition to security (as claimed to be)
Any help will be very much appreciated.
