    Thanks Daniel.

    Can you (or anyone else for that matter) comment on the licensing part of though?

    This is really not clear.

      What exactly is not clear regarding the licensing of the product? Your question is too vague for an exact answer...
      You have to buy a license for every host you manage. With that license you can manage an unlimited number of virtual machines on every specific host.
      Anyway, the pricing for SCVMM2008 can be found here.

        Thanks for the Link Sorin.

        Per host I manage I get but does that include Hosts that are not Windows - i.e. Xen/Vmware?

        Server Management Suite Enterprise (SMSE) - Which includes it all. Is this per Physical Host as well?

          Microsoft only say "physical host", with no reference to the virtualization product. Note that SCVMM2008 can manage VMWare hosts, but Xen management is not available yet. All speakers promise that will be available in the future.

          Indeed. The important question is what are you going to implement? If you need only SCVMM, then I would opt for the stand-alone version of SCVMM, and not as part of the Enterprise Suite (unlike the previous version, SCVMM2008 can be purchased by itself).
          If you plan to implement all the products from the SMSE, then you should buy it all.
