VM-aware networks

Also known as virtualization-aware networks, VM-aware networks utilize virtual Ethernet (vEth) technologies that enable data centers to efficiently configure and migrate virtual machines (VMs) across a network as well as into the cloud.

By providing network configuration at a virtual port level, VM-aware networking switches enable the dynamic and automatic movement of VMs across the network in virtualized environments. This helps eliminate the potential for security and migrations issues in a networked environment that relies heavily on virtual machines.
