The Virtualization Pipeline

In a previous post, I alluded to the fact that there were some awesome things in the pipeline in regards to Virtualization coming from Microsoft. One of the folks on the Longhorn product team has recorded a demo of virtualization in Longhorn, and I think you'll like what you see!

 In this demo you will see:

  • Windows Server Virtualization running on a Server Core installation managed remotely from another Windows Server Longhorn box
  • 64-bit and 32-bit virtual machines running concurrently
  • SUSE Linux 10 running in a virtual machine
  • An 8-core virtual machine
  • System Center Virtual Machine Manager
    • Interface and Operations
  • System Center Operations Manager
    • Monitoring the VMs on the Server Core box
    • Fire off a PowerShell script to hot-add another NIC to a SQL VHD Image

Video: Longhorn - Windows Server Virtualization.

Update: A much higher quality version of this demo has been uploaded to the Windows Server Longhorn site.  Direct link to video here.
