0 Comments Networking, vSphere

I was just invited by Cisco to be part of the BETA for the next release of the Nexus 1000V.  I’ll provide more details about the BETA after I install and test it out, but here are some teasers;

  • Virtual Service Domains: Supporting Layer 4-7 services such as VMware vShield
  • Security features for virtual desktop: IP Source Guard, Dynamic ARP Inspection, DHCP Snooping
  • VSM VMotion on its own VEM
  • Automated VSM Installer:  Configures VSM, vCenter Server Extension, System Port Groups
  • L3 Connectivity Between VSM and VEM: More flexible deployment
  • XML API And guess what…?!   You can be part of the BETA too! Check out this link and sign up to be part of the distributed virtual switch revolution!
