Microsoft may try to revive support for Hyper-V in OpenStack as the community considers removing the code, which one OpenStack developer called broken and unmaintained, from the stack.

I don't know of any active development deployment of it," said Joshua McKenty, CEO of Piston Cloud Computing. McKenty was the technical architect of NASA's Nebula cloud platform, which spun off into OpenStack, and is very involved in the OpenStack community.
