Is VMware supported for use with the Windows Azure Pack for Windows Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are exploring the possibility of WAP as the front-end for a VMware cloud, and wondering if 1) this is supported 2) what limitations we may encounter and 3) what happens if we add Hyper-V to the mix alongside VMware.

    Any thoughts or links to official guidance in this area?

  • This is an interesting question, and I must be honest and say I haven't tested it (yet).

    The requirement is of course that your VMware envornment must be managed by vCenter-->SCVMM. 

    By using the native features (VM templates, traditional virtual networks etc), I think you should be just fine.

    However, if you are looking for network virtualization scenarios, console access and so on, Hyper-V should be hypervisor to support all of this.

  • There are several aspects of deployment to VMware that do not work through WAP. At this time, WAP is intended as a solution for deployment to Hyper-V.
