More buzz around vNetwork and Cisco Nexus 1000V

The customer reaction to our networking announcements at VMworld has been fabulous. People really seemed to understand and see the relevance of our push toward greater manageability of the virtual network through our vNetwork Distributed Switch and how we are further embracing the "network team" and traditional network administration policies and boundaries through third party virtual switch support with the Cisco Nexus 1000V.

Last week I was guest on the VMware Communities Roundtable podcast where we discussed VDS and the Cisco Nexus 1000V. You can download the mp3 podcast here or stream/listen to it here (51 minutes).

Cisco, of course, has posted a great deal of information on the Nexus 1000V on their datacenter site. Be sure to clisk on the video where Doug Gourlay from Cisco interviews me in the Cisco studios about the new features. 🙂
