hypervisor-agnostic types

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

May I know exactly what types of hypervisor-agnostic that AMPP can support are in VDX platform or in VCS fabric?  In document, it just said it supports various types but not specific.

 

Thanks!

AMPP is supported with all hypervisors like vSphere, Hyper-V, and Xen. For normal AMPP operation, port profiles will have to pre-created manually on all these hypervisors. However, VMware has an advantage over other hypervisors. vCenter integration in VDX will create port profiles automatically from VM port-groups.

Dear smahadev,

 

We have been pounding Brocade engineering with requests for a VDX native client to support other market hypervisors and we never heard about this before.

 

Would you please care to share your sources with us ?

 

Best regards.
