Windows 2008 Hyper-V virtualization technology has been released

by ron on June 26, 2008

Windows Server 2008 has a whole variety of new features, and one of the most talked about features is the vastly improved virtualization technology which is now built-in to Windows 2008, called Hyper-V.

You can download Hyper-V starting today, and will be available via Windows Update on July 9th.

Hyper-V supports a number of virtual machine (VM) guests, such as:

  • Windows Server 2008
  • Windows Server 2003
  • Windows 2000 Server
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP
  • Novell SUSE Enterprise Linux

Many people have been wondering whether Microsoft will update their support of virtualization technology when it comes to Exchange 2007.
During the TechEd 2008 conference, Microsoft said that they would be releasing the updated Exchange 2007 virtualization support document 60 days after the release of Hyper-V. So mark your calendars for 60 days from today.

Here’s some unofficial news from Microsoft regarding what is expected to be supported with Exchange 2007 in virutalized environments.
