The CVG is currently only supported on VMWare today. Thanks.

Are there any plans to bring the CVG to Hyper-V? With the Windows Server 2012 a lot of shops are migrating over to save costs.

There are no plans at this point in time to offer CVG on other hypervisors. Due to the reluctance of many customers to use VMware, and the agony many other customers had in deploying VMware just for the CVG, we are renaming that product to the VPN Gateway-Virtual Appliance, and we just released an appliance version of that product called the VPN Gateway.  The physical appliance shares the same 1U hardware as our on-premises version of the HiveManager.

Hi Mike,

Hope you're well.

For smaller customers, a physical appliance is a good shout and it makes complete sense for you to have done this, but for most Enterprises (which I hope is what you aspire to target with your products), by and large, the last thing they want is more physical kit to have to look after - virtualisation is absolutely king.

Edwidge is entirely correct to say that since Windows Server 2012, a lot of Enterprises are starting to switch from VMWare to HyperV because many of the premium VMWare features that you pay an arm and a leg for are now "free" with HyperV.

18 months ago, not one of the other vendors I deal with that have virtualised versions of their prodycts supported anything other than VMWare. Now I am seeing most of them starting to support HyperV (and Xen and KVM in some cases) because VMWare's market dominance is starting to erode and they are starting to rule themselves out of deals if they don't support these other hypervisors.

I realise you still need a closer interaction with the vNIC driver than a generic application would, because of what your appliance is doing, so it's not a completely straight forward thing to "port", but 2012 supports the promiscuous mode and forged transmits that you need, so it should now be possible?

In any case, I would concur that it is something you should look at again, so consider this an "up vote" for the request from me :)
