A unique solution that enables the network to be Virtual Machine aware. The network can be configured and managed for 1000s of virtual ports (v-ports), rather than just physical ports.

With VMready, as VMs migrate across physical hosts, so do their network attributes. Virtual machines can be added, moved and removed while retaining the same ACLs, QoS and VLAN attributes. VMready allows for a ‘define once, use many’ configuration that evolves as the server and network topologies evolve.

VMready works with all virtualization products, including VMware, Microsoft’s Hyper-V, Xen and KVM, without modification of Virtual Machine Hypervisors or Guest operating systems.
