Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 Released and Available for Download.

As mentioned in my earlier blog-posting here the imminent release of Microsoft’s new virtualization product, Hyper-V Server 2008, is now upon us and has been made available for free download today!

Unlike Hyper-V which comes with Windows Server 2008 and is installed as a role, Hyper-V server  2008 is available as a standalone Hypervisor only install.


Information on Hyper-V Server 2008 can be found on Microsoft’s site here and the product itself can also be downloaded from this page.  There is also a nice table on this page that outlines which Hyper-V package is best suited to particular requirements.
