Vyatta Adds Hyper-V Support, Expands Advanced Routing Capabilities

Vyatta, the leader in software-based networking for virtual and cloud environments, today announced the general availability of Vyatta Network OS 6.5. With new features including Policy-Based Routing (PBR), BGP Multipath and more, Vyatta Network OS 6.5 is the industry’s most advanced software-based networking solution. Vyatta also increases its platform support with the inclusion of Microsoft Hyper-V, which delivers a new level of flexibility for enterprise and service provider datacenters.

The availability of Microsoft Hyper-V support in Vyatta Network OS delivers an enterprise-class networking and security solution for datacenters using virtualization from Microsoft or a combination of vendors. By deploying Vyatta in a Microsoft environment, datacenter architects can support advanced networking in support of Microsoft applications and systems.

“We are seeing a growing trend of datacenters deploying multiple hypervisors to provide the desired amount of flexibility and to properly serve the end-user,” said Dan Tuchler, Vice President of Marketing at Vyatta. “By adding support for Hyper-V, Vyatta now supports all of today’s top hypervisors and is the only networking company to provide software-based networking for VMware, Microsoft, Xen and KVM.”

In addition to extending hypervisor support, Vyatta Network OS 6.5 introduces several enhancements to its routing and security functionality:

  • Policy-Based Routing (PBR)
  • Virtual Tunnel Interface (VTI)
  • BGP Multipath
  • IPSec support for IPv6
  • Improved Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)

“The features released today further strengthen Vyatta’s enterprise-class networking and security solution, all the while delivering improved agility to datacenters,” Tuchler said. “The deployment of these technologies better prepares datacenters to rapidly react to changing business and application demands, to support private cloud infrastructure and provides a strategic roadmap toward Software-Defined Networking.”
