Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 Beta


Right after Windows 7 beta now the beta version of Windows Server 2008 R2 is available too. For links see my previous post.

At the same time Windows Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 Beta – what a mouthful – is available too. So no better time to check out the new and enhanced features of the standalone virtualization server from Microsoft. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • Support for Failover clustering
  • Live Migration support
  • Improved memory and CPU support
  • Updated config utility

Find out details about these and other features via the Hyper-V Server homepage.
