Assignment 2: Virtual Network Switches

In this assignment, you will evaluate Wonder Widgets Inc. for its virtualization process and the components necessary to start the implementation process.

Scenario:

Your boss at Wonder Widgets Inc. is impressed with your knowledge of virtualization based on your report outlining the benefits of the technology. The following week, your boss tells you, “I’ve been reading up on this virtualization stuff. It looks interesting, but I sure am having trouble understanding virtual networks. I mean, don’t you need real cables connecting these computers together?”

Tasks:

Using the Argosy University online library resources, scholarly or professional resources, your course textbook, and the Internet, research on virtual networks. Based on your research, create a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document, including the following:

  • An explanation of the structure of a virtual network, i.e., an explanation of how virtual machines reside within the traditional physical network structure.
  • A detailed review of the three types of virtual switches—external (or bridged), internal (or host-only), and private. Explain how each type of switch interacts with the host machine and the virtual machine.
  • Examples of when you would use each type of switch.

Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA); and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
