So today at VMworld I learned that the current version of the Cisco Nexus 1000v is NOT compatible with the vSphere vShield technology. I didn’t get an approximate release date on when a compatible version would be released. Stay tuned!
9/1 Update: I talked to a VMware lead for vShields and he said Cisco is in the process of making changes to the 1000v to allow it to function with vShields. Basically they are adding a service port to the 1000v which can channel all traffic to the vShields VM and back into the 1000v. They are in the process of testing the update, and likely by year’s end it will be released.
