Wow, some big news over on the Windows Virtualization Team Blog! SCVMM is released to manufacturing. The pricing model is very reasonable and is priced per physical host with management of an unlimited number of VMs. There is a midmarket solution available at a very low price. The biggest news of all howvers is that the roadmap for the next versions of SCVMM is to include full supoprt for managing bot Microsoft and non-Microsoft virtualization technologies. That's right: Virtual Server, Windows Server Virtualization, Xen, and that other small virtualization company VMWare 😉 That is going to be an a great management story when you combine all the System Center components running on a Powershell foundation with the ability to manage the entire virtualization ecosystem.
