Dell to Enable Hyper-V and Windows Server 2012 Support for OpenStack

Dell will enable Microsoft Windows Server Hyper-V as a viable hypervisor choice for the OpenStack cloud platform.

Specifically, Dell will enable key features of the Windows Server 2012 virtualization platform for OpenStack, including network virtualization, policy-based isolation, Quality of Service (QoS) and multi-tenancy.

Dell said it is working with other OpenStack members for the optimization of OpenStack components including OpenStack Compute for Hyper-V, OpenStack Block Storage for Windows, and Dell Crowbar provisioning. Dell is targeting availability of initial functionality in an upcoming release of the OpenStack project.

“Dell has been an active sponsor of OpenStack for almost three years,” said Forrest Norrod, general manager, Dell Server Solutions. “This project from Dell will help the OpenStack community gain additional value from investments in Windows Server 2012, with opportunity to further explore OpenStack-based solutions and workloads within existing environments.”
