Windows 7 isn’t the only big thing coming out of Microsoft on October, not for eco-techies at least. VIrtualization Review spotted this little nugget about Hyper-V that nearly got lost in the excitement.
At the very end of the Windows 7 posting was another announcement that
got surprisingly short shrift: “We also expect to be able to make RTM
code for Windows Server 2008 R2 available to our partners in this time
frame as well.” To me, and the virtualization community, that should be
just as exciting, because it means Hyper-V with live migration. Can I
get an Amen, brothers?!
Windows 7 launches on October 22, like you don’t already have your calendar marked. Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2… It’s going to be one busy Fall season.
