L’annonce date “un peu” puisque la RTM de ces services d’intégration pour les systèmes linux a été faite à la mi-août mais un petit rappel ne fait pas de mal…:-)

c’est ici http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=eee39325-898b-4522-9b4c-f4b5b9b64551

Supports des systèmes :

  • Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP3
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 / 5.3 / 5.4 / 5.5

Les évolutions à noter:

  • Driver support for synthetic devices: Linux Integration Services supports the synthetic network controller and the synthetic storage controller that were developed specifically for Hyper-V.
  • Fastpath Boot Support for Hyper-V: Boot devices take advantage of the block Virtualization Service Client (VSC) to provide enhanced performance.
  • Timesync: The clock inside the virtual machine will remain synchronized with the clock on the host.
  • Integrated Shutdown: Virtual machines running Linux can be gracefully shut down from either Hyper-V Manager or System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
  • Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) Support: Supported Linux distributions can use up to 4 virtual processors (VP) per virtual machine.
  • Heartbeat: Allows the host to detect whether the guest is running and responsive.
  • Pluggable Time Source: A pluggable clock source module is included to provide a more accurate time source to the guest.
