Hyper-V Joins the Party

Today, we announced we will be delivering VM networking support for Hyper-V in Microsoft’s forthcoming Windows 8.  Specifically, we are working with Microsoft to deliver integrated support for the Nexus 1000V and VM-FEX technology in their next generation server platform, thus extending the benefits customers have seen from both these technologies to another server/hypervisor environment.  For more info, check out the announcement and this brief and this Q&A.

With this latest announcement, we offer (or will offer) Nexus 1000V functionality for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V as well as VM-FEX support for those two hypervisors and RedHat Enterprise Virtualization.  For folks building out virtualization architectures and cloud environments, we think this is a key benefit, since it maintains their choice and flexibility and allows them to build out hyper-visor agnostic infrastructure that delivers consistent features and functionality.

So, that’s about it for now. Stay tuned to this space and we’ll keep you apprised as things progress.
