With the proliferation of virtualization, hypervisor customers are demanding integrated protection, consistent management, the ability to add virtual appliances and to tailor virtual switches to their networks. Switch plug-ins must be able to work together, have consistent management interfaces, and support migration to other hosts without breaking SLAs. In Windows Server 8, the Hyper-V switch is extensible for partners, who can build security, monitoring, and switching add-ons using well-known Windows APIs and development tools to quickly provide value-add solutions for enterprise and cloud deployments. This session will describe what partners need to know to successfully extend the Hyper-V switch.
