Hyper-V 2.0 features are already being discussed. Microsoft’s already great Virtualization product is going to get even better!
The next version of Microsoft’s Hyper-V is going to include:
· Live Migration (utilising a new Clustered Shared Volumes technology)
· 32 Logical Proc Support
· Hot Add/Remove Storage
· Second Level Address Translation – Leveraging new Virtualisation technology built into next generation of Intel/AMD chips
· Dynamic Memory
· Boot from VHD
· Networking Improvements
· Virtualised I/O
As I get more info, I’ll let you know..I saw the above over at VirtualBoy.
For me, the Live Migration will be a great addition as that’s one of the main differences between Hyper-V and ESX and I think it gives some people the impression that Hyper-V must be lacking elsewhere too (which isn’t the case). The addition of LIve Migration will certainly help increase the adoption rate of Hyper-V..
It looks like we’re quite close to the beta’s being available..
