Eric Traut, a Distinguished Engineer at Microsoft and one of the key architects behind our kernel and virtualization teams gave a great presentation at the University of Illinois on our virtualization architecture. Eric gave a very detailed description of WSV and even glimpes of some components of a future windows release. The initial link was from Channel9 but there is some additional commentary here.
Below is a link to a great virtualization webcast. I met Edwin and Jeff at TechReady this year, both good guys. Jeff is a PM on Windows Server Virtualization and Edwin is an EM with the Virtual Machine Manager team.
Virtualization is a high-priority topic for many enterprise IT organizations. Virtualization technology helps to improve hardware utilization, lower power consumption, and decrease physical space requirements. Most importantly, virtualization delivers increased quality of service for key applications within organizations. In this session, we examine the Microsoft virtualization ecosystem and how to implement it with Windows Server 2008. Taking an overall view of virtualization, we cover topics including: presentation, application, and server virtualization scenarios and technologies.Presenters: Edwin Yuen, Engagement Manager, Microsoft Corporation, and Jeff Woolsey, Senior Program Manager, Microsoft Corporation
