The show begins in 10 hours, but the news it out:

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008, a new hypervisor-based server virtualization product (like ESXi), will be released within 30 days and be available at no cost via the Web
  • Microsoft will demonstrate live migration feature of Windows Server 2008 R2. And the next version of Microsoft Hyper-V Server (the one after 2008) will have live migration capabilities.
  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 will be released within 30 days [not a surprise], which will manage Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V, Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2, Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 or VMware Virtual Infrastructure 3
  • Microsoft’s global server OEM partners ... report that nearly 100% of their customers who order Windows Server 2008 with hardware are also choosing to have Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V included with their order.
  • Dedicated virtualization lab established within the Microsoft Enterprise Engineering Center.

The keynote will be shown here in the morning [noon EDT]: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/events/virtualization/default.mspx

UPDATE:

Here is a clip from Bob Muglia's keynote featuring the first public Hyper-V Live Migration demo.  More videos are available here.

  • I was curious, I know how Microsft has the worst names ever when it comes to products and they seem to get longer and longer each year, but I'm taking a guess and only one product I wasnt sure on. System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 - VMM 2008 - Compares to VMware Virtual Center :: Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 - Compares to VMware Server ::Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 - compares to VMWare Workstation / VMWare Fusion.

    These two are so simlar it could be confusing though.

    Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V & Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008. I'm guess the difference is the first on is a role or core install, and the second is going to be a dedicated install like ESX?
