Now Hyper-V will be supporting the NK1V I am starting to take it a little more seriously than I had perhaps done before.

So check these videos out :

Using Hyper-V’s extensible switch framework the Nexus 1000v, as when Windows 8 is released, can now be used to create advanced virtual networking features within a Microsoft Hyper-V environment. VM-FEX (Hypervisor Bypass) will also available, its worth noting you have to be running Hyper-V on Cisco UCS utilising the VIC converged network card to get VM-FEX.

Check out the official announcement:

Its fair to say allot of people simply haven’t considered Hyper-V due to the lack of Nk1V support so it will be interesting if this any impact on VMware’s dominance.
