Cisco Nexus 1000V Now Supports VMware vSphere 6.0

Following up on my blog post announcing our intent to support VMware vSphere 6.0 environments with Cisco Nexus 1000V, I am happy to announce that we now have the supported release available for use.

Starting with release 5.2(1)SV3(1.4), Cisco Nexus 1000V for vSphere will support VMware vSphere 6.0 environments.  Customers can download the release on portal for Nexus 1000V for vSphere.

Cisco Nexus 1000V for vSphere, Hyper-V and KVM environments is continuing to be sold and supported by Cisco.  If you have an expiring VMware support contract for Nexus 1000V, please contact your Cisco account team about continuing product support through Cisco support organization.

Check out the video below for more in-depth discussion about Cisco Nexus 1000V support across multiple hypervisors and attend our webinar on April 21st 2015.
