Virtual Routers RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for something that might not completely exist, but I am looking for a virtual router that you could run as a guest in Hyper-V to create entire cloud networks for use. What I want to be able to do is virtualize the router onto a Hyper-V host, and then if the VMs that are for the other machines and the router need to say be migrated to another machine or another datacenter, then it is just a migration and the entire infrastructure is migrated. I know that there was a product that Cisco was working on, but that might not be out for another 6+ months and the cost is decently high on that, and was wondering if anyone knew of a different solution that would be available.

  • One of the options that I have found for this is Vyatta SDN routers that run great in a Hyper-V environment, and there is an open-source version that is available along with the paid subscription version that comes with added benefits. For the majority of what I am doing in the area of the network that I needed this for, the open-source version has been performing wonders, and so I thought I would add that in here to people had that for reference as well.

  • Cisco Nexus v1000 is one solution. You can probably join the beta program no, and test this together With VMM 2012 SP1 and Win 2012.

  • I do know about that coming out, and I will have to ry the beta, but last time I was told about that it was around $1500/year/instance for that so not exactly that great an option for smaller businesses. Anyone else know of anything else?
