Introducing Microsoft Hyper-V

Today at Tech ED / IT FORUM in Barcelona we made a couple of important announcements:

  1. Windows Server virtualization in Windows Server 2008 (formerly codenamed ‘Viridian’) will have an official product name of ‘Hyper-V’.  Love it or hate it – it is what we will use (personally – having known about this for a while now – I am quite comfortable with the new name).
  2. We have also announced the Server Virtualization Validation program – so that third party vendors can work to validate their server virtualization software running Windows Server 2008 and prior versions.
  3. Finally – we have announced pricing for Windows Server 2008 with Hyper-V.
