accelerators The guys over at the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Team (MAP) Blog have a great post today regarding the announcement of the availability of Solution Accelerators for Virtualization and the launch of Windows Server 2008.  What exactly are Solution Accelerators?  Well basically it's a set of tools and technical guidance to help in all phases of implementing and supporting various Microsoft Technologies.  In my previous life as a working IT Pro I used documents like these very heavily.  They are a very valuable asset not only to deployment and managing technology, but also are very helpful when you have to go to management to justify budget and time to deploy.   Give the map blog a look and keep your eye out for more good stuff on the Solution Accelerators page on Technet
