We have just release some new resources for Virtualization. Check them out below:
- Virtualization Calculator 2.0 - We released the original version of this in January 2007 but this updated version lest you interactively build virtual machines running multiple Microsoft Server products to estimate the licensing and costs for Windows Server by edition. It starts with configuring your server based on virtualization technology, sockets and clustering requirements and then builds the Virtual machines.
- Licensing Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 to run with different Virtualization technologies - Contrary to popular beleive we don't license Windows differently when running on a third party virtualization platform. This document goes into the details of this clearly and compares VMotion, System Center Virtual Machine Manager and Microsoft Host Clustering.
