Hyper-V OpenStack Compute

Microsoft Hyper-V is an amazing compute option for OpenStack. It blends perfectly well with any new or existing cloud deployment, interoperating with other hypervisors like KVM, VMware vSphere / ESXi or XenServer.

Windows instances work out of the box on Hyper-V, without the need of external drivers and with the benefits of Microsoft support.

Hyper-V also supports Linux guests, with the Linux Integration Services (LIS) already included in the kernel of any major distribution.

Cloudbase Solutions is the leading contributor of everything Windows related in OpenStack and the downloads available on this page include all the required Nova, Neutron, Ceilometer and Open vSwitch (OVS) components, automatically configured during deployment.

Last but not least, our OpenStack compute MSI installer can be deployed in a fully automated way using Puppet, Chef, SaltStack, Ansible, DSC, Windows Group Policies or any other automated configuration framework.
