The second in the R2 video wave, focuses on a new capability in R2, namely, Dynamic Storage.  This is a capability which allows an administrator to add or remove a virtual hard disk (VHD) or pass through disk, to a running virtual machine, without incurring any downtime for that virtual machine.  This is particularly useful, when, for example, you want to backup a virtualised SBS 2008 Server, using the in-guest SBS backup tool as the disk you add to the VM, can in fact be a raw, pass-through USB disk, attached to the host box.  The video is just under 7 minutes long, so should be a nice bite size chunk of info to take on board!

You can view the video within the webpage here, or head on over to VirtualboyTV to see it in higher definition.  For the best experience, you can always download it from this page.

Feedback welcome!  Stay tuned for more videos soon!
