Microsoft Hyper-V beta hits the stands!

And Technet bloggers are excited about it...

Some of the new features added since the Windows Hyper-V CTP include:

  1. Quick Migration and high availability providing solutions for planned and unplanned downtime
  2. Support for running Hyper-V with Server Core in the parent partition
  3. Import/Export of virtual machines
  4. Hyper-V now integrated with Windows Server Manager
  5. Integration components are now included in Windows Server 2008 meaning that when you install Windows Server 2008 in a Hyper-V virtual machine, Windows will automatically install the ICs.
  6. VHD Tools support (compaction, expansion and inspection)
  7. Emulated video card has changed from an S3 Trio video card to a more generic VESA compatible device. (This change resolves numerous video issues with non-Windows operating systems like Linux).
  8. Support for up to four virtual SCSI controllers per virtual machine
  9. Numerous fixes for compatibility, performance and scalability
  10. ...and lots more that I'll cover in upcoming blogs


Couple of videos available as well.
