Last week, Larry Orecklin, general manager of the Windows enterprise and management division, said during a meeting with Network World editors that Hyper-V would ship in June or July.
Vu added that Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008, which adds support for Hyper-V, would ship 30 to 60 days after Hyper-V hits its release-to-manufacturing stage. VMM 2008 is currently in beta.
When Hyper-V ships, Microsoft will be adding a third hypervisor option to go along with those already available from VMware Inc. and Xen-based derivatives marketed by Citrix, Oracle, Red Hat and Novell.
Hypervisor technology is a base technology layer that acts as the virtualization foundation for guest operating systems.
