Robert Larson has a post on his blog to say that his co-author on the VS 2005 resource kit, Janique Carbone has posted some sample chapters on the VS community web site. The paper edition is at the printers with a release date of August 28th: if, like me, you hate buying these kind of books sight unseen, these downloads are a great way to decide if it is the book for you or not.
Meanwhile, over on the Windows Server Virtualization blog, Jeff’s posted a guide to running Virtual Server 2005 on Windows Server 2008. In case you think that’s a daft idea, remember that Windows Server’s native Virtualization is 64 bit only so if you want Virtualization on 32 bit 2008 you need Virtual Server. It may also prove to be a useful stepping stone for some customers on the way to WSV.
Finally we’ve posted some new Videos.
- Mike Neil, General Manager, talks about Virtualization in Windows Server
- My old friend Alex Balcanquall, talks about Application and Presentation Virtualization (or 2008 terminal services, it’s new features and how it works with Softgrid)
- Therron Powell and Mark Karnowski talk about NPIV SAN Integration and Microsoft Virtualization
