Hyper-V: As Easy as Pie (Once You Configure the Stove!)

Our new magazine/Web site/blog/newsletter Virtualization Review is fully up and running. In fact, we just printed and shipped tens of thousands of copies of the very first issue.

Leading our virtualization charge is former Redmond Editor Keith Ward, now editor of Virtualization Review. (Keith is so good, we hire him back every time he leaves for what he thinks are greener pastures. Now he knows the truth: Ain't nothing greener than virtualization!)

Keith is a techie at heart and lately has been messing with a sweet HP loaner server, most recently loading Windows Server 2008 and the beta of Hyper-V. So far, so good. The only glitch was enabling virtualization on HP's Xeon processors before he could successfully load the new Microsoft hypervisor.

Keith promises a steady stream of reports on various hypervisors -- all from the perspective of a new virtualization user, which most people in IT actually are. Keep up with Keith's blog here or get the RSS feed here.
