Does anyone have some informations on the network details regarding Hyper-V and especially how it differs from VMWareESX on the network side.

For example:

- how is the "vswitch" implemented in Hyper-V ?

- Does the microsoft "vswitch" run Spanning Tree ? Should i expect BPDU packets on HyperV ports ?

- how is "ESX high availability" implemented in Hyper-V ? Does it make use of multicast like the previous MS clustering ?

I am looking for ways to support both on the same hardware (ie. Blade chassis with C3120 blade switches)
