Future of Hyper-V - Bandwidth Management RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are there any plans for an update to Hyper-V to include bandwidth management?  It is the single deciding factor in my unwillingness to use Hyper-V over VMWare Server.  To those who have previously given people grief over why Hyper-V would ever include bandwidth management:

    Hyper-V should manage ALL of the host's resources which can be shared with a virtual machine.  The hypervisor shares and manages the CPU, the RAM, the HDD.  Why would it not be necessary to include management for a measurable resource like bandwidth?  For most dedicated servers, CPU is cheap.  Hard drive space is cheap.  RAM is asininely expensive for some reason (which I've never bothered to look into why) but generally it is a one time additional fee and not a recurring one.  Bandwidth is, again, absurdly expensive.  With bandwidth being the single largest recurring investment in a dedicated server, would it not be fairly obvious to implement management of it?

  • As an aside, I have absolutely no qualms about writing addons/plugins/custom drivers/custom software, provided that SDKs or source code are provided to do so.  I haven't got as far as actually looking into whether such things are available or not, but I'll do that now, as well as check out your link.  Thanks for the reply :)
