Microsoft Going Virtual
Among the lengthy series of announcements made by Microsoft at its combined
TechEd Europe conference last week and this week was that its Viridian virtualization
be known as Hyper-V
, and would be integrated with Windows Server 2008.
It also announced Hyper-V Server, a standalone hypervisor-based server product
that complements this technology and allows customers to virtualize workloads
onto a single physical server.
The company also announced Microsoft
Application Virtualization 4.5, formerly known as SoftGrid Application Virtualization.
This product is currently available as a public beta and will become available
through Microsoft Application Virtualization for Terminal Services in the second
half of 2008.
I was at Microsoft last week, and asked whether SoftGrid would be available
beyond Software Assurance. No one wanted to answer my question. Now I know why.
Are you using virtualization? Have you looked at application virtualization?
