Virtualize More and more

Dan woodman wrote a new post about A New Choice in Virtualization


Hyper-V Server 2008 is a new product from Microsoft, providing the functionality of the Hyper-V component in a standalone format.  This product allows a “bare metal install.”  That means that no operating system is required — Hyper-V Server is designed to be installed asthe OS on the host machine.  It provides very limited functionality — only allowing the machine to host virtual machines.  But, in a scenario like mine, that’s the only functionality I need.  The best part is, Hyper-V Server 2008 is a free download.  So, not only do you not need to use on of your Windows Server licenses to host virtual machines, but you don’t have to spend a penny!  🙂

I’m in the process of reloading my server with this new product, so expect more in the near future about the inner workings of Hyper-V Server 2008.
