Hyper-V / Windows Server 2008 Data Center Edition

FindMyHost will begin experimenting with Microsoft’s new Virtualization technology Hyper-V. What makes Hyper-V on Windows so cool is that they have actually integrated it within the OS similar to how IIS is integrated. In addition, it is a 64-bit environment and I’m hoping all of our apps move over seamlessly.

We already virtualize quite a bit of stuff, but this will be a move toward total virtualization. This will result in an easier to manage system as well as lower costs all around.

It should be a great deal of fun and a good learning experience. The company also purchased a super fast beast of a machine to run the new environments on. If all goes well, I hope we can convert to the new virtualization setup within a month.

We are one of the first people to get our hands on Hyper-V thanks to the people at SoftLayer. They were one of the first Web Hosts to launch Hyper-V. Be sure to jump over and check out their Hyper-V product line at SoftLayer. I haven’t even logged in yet, but I am hoping SoftLayer’s always reliable tech support is ready for me. LOL.

I’m sure more of our clients are offering Hyper-V. I will update this post with those clients once we find out who else is offering this cool new software from Microsoft!
