Great news for Web Hostings : Dynamic Memory : versions supported

 
As we know, Microsoft is going to release the Dynamic Memory in Windows 2008 R2 SP1
 
Microsoft will release the Windows 2008 R2 SP1 beta with Dynamic Memory support only for enterprise and datacenter versions but the RTM version, will support all versions, including Standard and Web.
 
This is a really great news, specially for Web hosting companies, due to licenses costs.
 
And more, not only the web and standard versions of Windows 2008 R2 will be supported but also Windows 2008 and Windows 2003.
 
I could say that this will help the server consolidation and the adoption of the Hyper-V by Web Hosting Companies.
 
Here are the details :
 

 Windows 2008 R2 guests will need to have SP1 installed to use standard or web versions

Windows 2008 guests will need to have a separate (yet to be released) hotfix

Windows 2003/2003 R2 guests will be suported
