..and ahead of schedule!
That’s right! Hyper-V, the new game-changing virtualization technology that is included in Windows Server 2008, has been released today.
Here’s the official press release.
“How do I get it?”
Well.. first of all you have to have Windows Server 2008 64-bit running on Virtualization capable hardware (meaning the Intel or AMD processors that have virtualization optimization built-in). See the Hyper-V TechCenter to get the details.
As for the download – it’s HERE (or will be soon): http://www.microsoft.com/hyper-v
You also will be able to update your existing installations of pre-release Hyper-V using Windows Update starting July 7th, 2008.
So.. go forth and VIRTUALIZE!
PS - I did a pretty good (I think so, anyway) webcast on Hyper-V. You can watch it HERE.
