Great News in Scale Universe: VLAN tagging and Multiple NIC’s for each VM.

ICOS 4.2 is finally here and it holds great promise: VLAN’s plus allowing multiple NIC’s for each VM inside the Scale HC3 platform.

Stay tuned for LAB reports on this. We are currently in the process of upgrading the HC3 to 10GbE back plane. Once this is done we will report what the new VLAN feature brings to the table together with performance reports comparing results when using the 1GbE and 10GbE back plane respectively.

In the mean time please have a look at the Official Scale video on the topic:
