    The Service Ready Engine Virtualization (SRE-V) product release 1.5.1, corresponding documentation and IOS images are now available for download in the Knowledge Base.

    The following is a summary of new features and functionality introduced in Cisco SRE-V Release 1.5.1.

     ¿ Management and guest OS feature parity with VMware vSphere Hypervisor (ESXi) Release 4.1:
        ¿  Optional ability to manage the Cisco SRE-V software through VMware vCenter Server. This feature can be purchased with the Cisco SRE-V hypervisor license or at a later time as an upgrade license to the base Cisco SRE-V hypervisor license.
     
       ¿ Support for various general-purpose Linux distributions. Cisco SRE-V software supports all operating systems that are supported by the VMware ESXi Release 4.1 and later as specified in the VMware Compatibility Guide: http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=software
     
       ¿ Support for VMware ESXi Tech Support Mode (TSM), native VMware ESXi user management, and access to all root user privileges.

    ¿ RAID management introduced in Cisco SRE-V Release 1.1 has now been fully integrated into VMware ESXi. All RAID management functions are performed through the VMware ESXi shell command-line interface (CLI).
     
    ¿ The IOS configuration has been greatly simplified eliminating the requirement to create an mgf interface for hypervisor access.
