Well I’ve done a couple of sessions now on our Virtual Machine technology and I have to say its way cool. If you are thinking of using this technology in your business we have some great information on our website. Virtual PC 2004 SP1 has just been released and addresses a number of issues, in particular performance issues with SP2 running on Windows XP virtual machines. We have also released a deployment whitepaper which has a number of scripts included to help you rollout older Microsoft operating systems on a large scale.
On the Virtual Server 2005 side of the fence we have only just released this product which will dramatically help in the areas of server consolidation, software testing and development and application re-hosting. So if you haven’t had a chance to play around with Virtual Server download the Virtual Server 2005 Evaluation Kit and have a look.
At the same time we have releases the Virtual Server 2005 Migration Toolkit which will help in the automation of server migrations from a physical server to a server within a virtual machine! This is great for migrating from older Microsoft operating systems on to a Windows Server 2003 system.
Enjoy Virtualizing your world!
