Why R2? Software Defined Networking with Hyper-V Network Virtualization

IT Pros Rock!

Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) is part of our Software Defined Networking (SDN) portfolio that is included inbox with Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2. Hyper-V Network Virtualization (HNV) – Virtualizing the Network Layer.

Microsegmentation – Secure Your Internal Network

The argument is that today with the expansion of n-tier distributed systems and massively parallel architectures, east-west traffic has increased exponentially. Zero trust in my mind doesn’t really mean “trust no one” because then you would have no traffic on your network.

Network Virtualization isn’t Vaporware

On Network Virtualization and SDN

Scott Lowe

Is there a difference between network virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN)? So, in a similar fashion to my post on network overlays vs. network virtualization , I thought I’d weigh in with some thoughts. My purpose, as John put it when he invited me, was to “gently introduce” the community to the idea of network virtualization, which is where I now spend most of my time since joining VMware in early February.
