Network Virtualization with SCVMM 2012 Sp1 – Some key points before start

I was running around this topic for the last few months. Once we had Windows 2012 HyperV Clusters, the next target was to try out network virtualization. Unfortunately, SCVMM 2012 Sp1 was not ready at that time. Recently, we got that. We did attempted and few points which I understood now is

  • For enabling communication between a Network Virtualized subnet and a non network virtualized subnet, A Virtualization Gateway needs to be in the middle
  • Virtualization Gateway devices are still under development and major network vendors are getting ready for release
  • Microsoft is coming up with Software-based NV Gateway which will be fully integrated with SCVMM
  • F5 is also coming with Network Virtualization gateway – but time lines are not confirmed

To my knowledge, the whole stuff is amazing but its complicated. Lack of documentation and information makes it complicated and I expect to see more official documentation coming up for NV in the coming days.

If you have any further information to add on, Please comment. I am open for a discussion.
