System Center Virtual Machine Manager Beta 2 is available for download here.
Some of the new features of this release include:
- New UI (similar to System Center Operations Manager 2007, Service Desk and System Center Essentials)
- Physical-to-Virtual (P2V) Support (for Windows Server 2000 or Windows Server 2003)
- Virtual-to-Virtual (V2V) Support (VMware to Virtual Server)
- 64-bit VMM server support
- Full PowerShell support with documentation
- Better overall performance and scalability
- Many minor tweaks, fixes and improvements
I have had some time to play with this release ahead of time, and I must say that it is a drastic improvement over (the already good) Beta 1 release. So whether you have looked at SCVMM already or not – I would highly recommend that you go and give it a try.
