I just wanted to clarify (incorrect) rumors/speculation about the release date for SCVMM 2008 R2. There is a lot of built up excitement for this release and we've added many features, none more anticipated than live migration. While it is true that our competition has had this feature for some time (and has made customers pay dearly for the privilege if using it), adding it to Hyper-V opens up a brand new set of exciting and cost effective management/optimization scenarios for Windows Server nation!
We've always maintained that we will ship SCVMM 2008 R2 as soon as possible after Windows Server 2008 R2 is released and this remains the case. As you can read from the Windows Server Blog we're coming down the home stretch. Once the Windows Server release is locked, (which is now only a couple of weeks away) our test team will run through a full test pass with SCVMM 2008 R2 to ensure that we've caught any late breaking issues. We have obviously worked very closely with the Hyper-V team and already have plenty of customers in full production on Windows Server 2008 R2 + SCVMM 2008 R2 so we don't expect this to happen but as Reagan once said "trust but verify".
I don't have an exact date to communicate at this point but late summer/early fall is our target.....as always, stay tuned for more details.
