Following my last post, here's a few links on microsoft.com which provide more information.
A brief on virtualisation is here, and a whitepaper on virtualisation can be found here.
But wait... just found more. This is the official press release. There's a few interesting remarks in there (apart from the Q&A about the release itself obviously).
Thanks for this John - very interesting. Do you know whether the more relaxed licensing rules require that the virtualization technology used be Virtual Server 2005? Would it be legal, under the new rules, to host your four instances of R2 Enterprise Edition in a VMWare environment?
Hi Peter. Yes, these licensing rules also apply under VMWare as I understand it. Cheers, John.
