Networking is one of the areas which enjoyed the largest amount of innovation recently, especially in configuration and multi-tenancy, with Open vSwitch™ (OVS) playing the leading part in this domain by far.
As a result of the joint effort between Cloudbase Solutions, VMware and the rest of the Open vSwitch community, OVS is now ported for Microsoft Hyper-V, allowing the integration of Hyper-V in multi-hypervisor clouds using GENEVE, GRE, VXLAN and STT as a common overlay standard.
The installation process is made extremely easy with our intuitive MSI installer taking care of all the required binaries and configurations, including Windows services for the ovsdb-server and ovs-vswitchd daemons.
Contact us and explore different commercial support options for your on premise, hybrid cloud or datacenter.
Please refer to the following blog post on how to integrate Open vSwitch in your Hyper-V OpenStack installation.
Fully unattended installation is also available(if you already have accepted/imported our certificate) in order to install Open vSwitch with Windows GPOs, Puppet, Chef, SaltStack, DSC or any other automated deployment solution:
msiexec /i openvswitch-hyperv.msi /l*v log.txt
