Using Nexus 1000 V in Multi-vendor environment

Roman Pomazanov

Hi all!

I'm interesting is there any possibility to use one VSM module of Nexus V in multi-vendor environment.

For example i have virtualization based on Hyper-V with VMM from one side and VMware with vCenter and i want to have one point of network virtualization based on Cisco Nexus V.

Can i install VEM's on each Hyper-V and VMware hosts and use only one VSM for management?

I understood that Nexus 1000V positioned as replacement for Logical Switch in VMM and Distributed Switch in vCenter and i think that there is no way to have one "big logical switch" extended to two different virtualization system, but maybe there is some way to create "central entry point" for virtual network management?

Thank you in advance!

Architecturally hyper-v and esxi are different.

You can't have one VSM manage VEM's from multi vendor(hyper-v and ESXi). It is not supported.
