It’s been a little bit of time since I last posted but I promise to post more regularly, as soon as I get back from my vacation in Hawaii :).
This week, I wanted to cover some new news and some items I tweeted about but didn’t blog.
- I wrote a new post, Virtualization Reality: Why Microsoft® Virtualization Solutions Deliver Value When Compared to VMware® on my other blog, from the Because It’s Everybody’s Business site. It covers how the Microsoft cost comparisons are done and a view on the VMware cost calculations.
- We have just announced that Microsoft and Red Hat have completed certification on each others products. If you want to run Red Hat on Hyper-V or MS applications on Red Hat KVM, you want to read this post.
- There is now official documentation for migrating a cluster from Hyper-V to Hyper-V R2. Hans Vredevoot wrote up a great list of links for migrating Hyper-V clusters.
- Windows Virtual PC and the associated Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 has been Released to Manufacturing (RTMed). Ben Armstrong announced this on his blog.
- I still see a lot of misrepresentations about Hyper-V and whether it’s a bare metal hypervisor. There is a great post from Netapp on what the misconceptions are and why Hyper-V is really a bare metal hypervisor.
Thanks everyone. Look out for more posts upcoming and you can always follow me on Twitter (@edwinyuen).
