As we count down to the final few days into the MAP 3.1 RTM date, I'd like to offer you a sneak-peak of how to use the Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit 3.1 to 1) conduct a migration assessment of your existing servers to Windows Server 2008 and 2) determine if a select set of your servers are good candidates for virtualization using the Hyper-V hypervisor technology from Windows Server 2008.
Enjoy the the videos....Part I is Windows Server 2008 Hardware Assessment and Inventory.
Part II is Server Virtualization Assessment using Hyper-V and MAP 3.1
