  • Hyper V Stand Alone Version

    Anyone know Hyper V (Without 200 can be downloaded from Technet yet? I know it's due for release within a few months but I would have though technet direct customers could have downloaded a Beta.

    I've searched the site but can't find anything

          According to Microsoft speakers during the getVirtualnow! day I attended on Tuesday this week, the product will be available to the public starting the beginning of October. More details available on the product's site.
          From what I heard during the same day during unofficial talks is that the product will be like a stripped-down Windows 2008 Server Core, richer in its features than ESXi. We'll see...

              well, I have had some experience with hyper-v by now, and I was not impressed.

              ESXi gives you a serious portion of the enterprise ESX product for free, while the MS product has less functionality, is buggy as hell (NOT production material for sure, QA/QC purposes - maybe) and is not reliable.

              I have seen it completely scramble up snapshot files, irreversibly destroy VM files during import/exports and overclutter the VM directories with useless junk files during pretty standard procedures, like taking snapshots.

              overall, there are some nice features, like the possibility to locally connect to a VM, but that is definitely not worth the hassle.


              I seriously think that every datacentre failure is stressful, and a VM server is a micro-DC. nerve cells do not regenerate, not mine, nor the users'

                Actually, from what I heard, it's actually a Server Core with only one role: Hyper-V.

                We'll see.

                    Which, coming to think about, can be quite easily accomplished without the need of an additional or special OS. However the major benefits are in the fact that unlike regular Win2008 Server Core, this product will be totally free (I still do not know if it will require any sort of activation though).
