"For years, VMware has supported NetFlow v5 -- and now with its vSphere v5.1 version, VMware offers support for IPFIX and export support for IPv6 and the new VXLAN technology for software defined networking," explains Michael Patterson, CEO, Plixer International, and author of the newly released book "Unleashing the Power of NetFlow and IPFIX." "IT professionals at organizations must be aware that monitoring business applications running on ESX require special considerations."
According to Forrester Consulting's Forrsights Hardware Survey, in 2013, 74% of x86 server OS instances will be operating as virtual servers rather than directly on server hardware. The survey indicates that "29% of the North American organizations surveyed by Forrester Consulting identified the overall state of security of virtual systems (as well as the compliance issues associated with those systems) as a major concern about future server virtualization deployments."
