Virtual LAN
  • Virtual Ethernet is a virtual implementation of Ethernet and allows for communication between logical partitions or virtual machines without the need of assigning physical hardware on those partitions.
  • Virtual Ethernet is the same set of communication standards and came about because the virtualization of servers required the virtualization of the Ethernet protocol.
  • Technology: Logical partitions are able to use virtual Ethernet via virtual Ethernet adapters. By using these virtual adapters, virtual machines can establish high speed communication with other virtual machines
