Today at IT Forum, Bob Kelly, corporate vice president in the Server and Tools Business at Microsoft, announced pricing, packaging and licensing for Windows Server 2008 and introduced a new product, Microsoft Hyper-V Server. Specifically:
Continuing Microsoft’s efforts in the virtualization space, Kelly also announced the Server Virtualization Validation Program. Beginning in June 2008, vendors will be able to self-test and validate certain technical requirements of their server virtualization software running Windows Server 2008 and prior versions. The program will enable Microsoft to offer cooperative technical support to customers running Windows Server on validated, non-Windows server virtualization software.
