VMworld Cannes 2008 : Microsoft Partner interviewed; Virtualization experiences exchanged

Microsoft is beginning to rise up to the Hyper-V challenge and by Q2 2008 a lot will start moving, and in a big way. In fact I had someone asking me for Hyper-V deployment yesterday in their production environment! A big customer and I pointed them in the right direction but also told them that they will have to wait for the GA ;-). Microsoft's Hyper-V is going to be central in its own Cloud-Ready data centers. The future virtualization will look a lot different than the carve by OS approach we see today.

Anyways so I got in touch with couple of my Microsoft buddies in U.S and they invited BrainForce guys to do a quick chat with me. Here I am chatting up with Albert Hooyer, Product Manager at Brainforce from The Netherlands.

These interviews were conducted for portal.
