InMon Corp. announces Hyper-V Network Virtualization support and integration with Microsoft System Center 2012
San Francisco — June 11, 2012 — InMon Corp. today announced that the sFlow® Agent for Windows Server Hyper-V works with the Virtual Machine Manager component of System Center 2012, which is Microsoft's cloud orchestration and virtual machine deployment solution. The sFlow Agent is now easily deployed across cloud and data center environments providing integrated and coherent performance data of all network and system resources.
InMon also announced plans for the sFlow Agent for Windows Server Hyper-V to support the new sFlow network virtualization extension in order to provide visibility into Hyper-V Network Virtualization. Network virtualization is particularly important in cloud environments where tenants share the same physical infrastructure but must be isolated from each other. In such environments it is critically important to have visibility into virtualized networks for performance management, security analysis, and billing.
"As Microsoft's cloud-optimized operating system and management solution, Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 enable customers to rapidly deploy workloads to the private, public, and hybrid cloud," said Ross Ortega, Principal Program Manager, Windows Networking, Microsoft. "Hyper-V Network Virtualization allows customers to orchestrate and automate multi-tenant clouds with high levels of reliability, scalability, and agility. InMon's support for Hyper-V Network Virtualization is designed to increase visibility into virtualized environments, which is important for datacenter environments."
"We are pleased to be working with Microsoft." said Peter Phaal, President of InMon Corp. "Network virtualization is becoming critical as customers transition from private datacenters to the cloud. The visibility into multi-tenant Windows Server Hyper-V environments offered by sFlow and InMon addresses a particular challenge with cloud environments, and we think it will provide a compelling solution for customers."
