Those of you who have followed my blog for a while know that I’ve – for one reason or another – been referring to Windows Server virtualization by its codename, which caused some initial confusion. There’s a reason that I did this – I knew that the name was changing, and I didn’t want to send a whole lot of information out into the web with a name that wasn’t going to stick. I’m sure there were times when I actually said “Windows Server virtualization”, but I tried to keep it to a minimum.
At any rate, the product name has now been officially announced: Microsoft Hyper-V.
Update: I’ve clarified the statement about pricing.
