Woo hoo! Well – the demo went off perfectly (I was backstage keeping an eye on the hardware). Kudos Jeff for the fantastic job!
For those who did not see it – today we demonstrated Windows virtualization running:
– 32-bit and 64-bit virtual machines
– Windows Server 2003, RedHat Linux, Longhorn server
– 1, 2 and 4 processor virtual machines
– Hot adding network cards and memory to virtual machines
We also announced that we will be supporting hot add of storage and 8 processor virtual machines (I have actually seen both of these working internally – but were not in today’s demo).
