InMon Corp demonstrates sFlow at the Microsoft BUILD conference
San Francisco — October 3, 2011 — At the Microsoft BUILD Conference last month, InMon Corp. demonstrated sFlow® traffic monitoring, which works with the Microsoft Windows Server "8" Hyper-V Extensible Switch.
Providing sFlow monitoring in the Hyper-V Extensible Switch ensures that the benefits of virtualization can be realized without losing the visibility into network traffic, which is essential for network troubleshooting, traffic accounting and security. In addition, sFlow in Hyper-V includes physical and virtual machine performance monitoring, delivering comprehensive visibility into network and system resources in Microsoft environments.
The sFlow agent is implemented as a Hyper-V Switch extension, which works seamlessly with the Hyper-V Extensible Switch. The agent automatically discovers and tracks changes to virtual switch and virtual machine configuration, ensuring complete and continuous network and system management.
"Microsoft is pleased to support InMon's work in developing an sFlow extension for the Hyper-V Extensible Switch." said Manlio Vecchiet, Director of Product Management, Windows Server and Virtualization, at Microsoft Corp. "The combination of sFlow in the Microsoft Hyper-V Extensible Switch is meant to help customers achieve the same level of visibility in a virtualized environment as they have in their physical environment."
"We think customers will be happy with the sFlow Hyper-V Switch extension." said Peter Phaal, President of InMon Corp. "It is a high performance and robust sFlow implementation, and provides the measurement data required to manage a virtualized environment."
The sFlow Hyper-V Switch extension will be available to coincide with the launch of Windows Server 8.
