Tokyo, September 5, 2012 - NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) has developed new "UNIVERGE PF1000" extension software that brings OpenFlow to the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Extensible Switch.
The "UNIVERGE PF Series" (ProgrammableFlow) supports OpenFlow technologies and consists of NEC network products that enable software-defined networks (SDN): the "UNIVERGE PF5240/5820" ProgrammableFlow switch with packet forwarding functions, and the "UNIVERGE PF6800" ProgrammableFlow controller with communication control functions.
The recently developed "UNIVERGE PF1000" capitalizes on the extensible architecture of the Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V virtual switch to add OpenFlow support, enabling the "UNIVERGE PF6800" to control virtual switches, as well as existing "UNIVERGE PF5240/5820" physical switches. This solution allows for flexible and comprehensive control of server virtualization environments.
NEC cooperated with Microsoft from the early stages of development of Windows Server 2012, which helped to drive development, testing, and certification of the "UNIVERGE PF1000" extension software.
"Built for the cloud, Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V provides rich multi-tenancy and isolation capabilities. The Hyper-V Extensible Switch enables NEC's ProgrammableFlow Suite to provide a unified, end-to-end experience that is fully interoperable with Windows," Microsoft's Sandeep Singhal, General Manager, Windows Networking, tells us. "By bringing OpenFlow to Hyper-V, NEC's ProgrammableFlow Network Suite unifies the physical and virtual network policy, complementing the SDN capabilities built into Windows Server 2012."
