Well I am off to Barcelona Spain again to speak at TechEd IT Forum November 12-16th. This will be an exciting show for Virtualization. System Center products will be launching and Microsoft will be making some announcements about Windows Server 2008 virtualization.

System Center products focused on virtualization:

Virtual Machine Manager 2007 - centralized management of your Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 pool of hosts, Physical to Virtual migration, Virtual to Virtual Migration, Self Service web portal, VM templates, provisioning, and much more....

Data Protection Manager 2007 - centralized backup to disk or tape, native support for Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, and Virtual Server, delta based backup to reduce network traffic, end user file recovery, and much more

Operations Manager 2007 - SCOM has already been launched, but at the show will be new management packs for VMM and Virtual Server

Viridian announcements - While I cannot blog about the announcements...yet, I think you will really like them. So stay tuned....

There will also be many breakout sessions on Virtualization. There will be a surprise at a couple of the sessions....we will be giving away signed copies of the Virtual Server 2005 R2 Resource Kit , so come attend for a chance to win a copy.

See you there!!
