Windows Server 8 Hyper-V: first public glimpse

What is comming in the new version?

16+virtual processors within a Hyper-V VM, to support large scale up workloads.

Hyper-V Replica. Today, replication is complex to configure and often requires expensive proprietary hardware. Hyper-V Replica is asynchronous, application consistent, virtual machine replication built-in to Windows Server 8. With Hyper-V Replica, you can replicate a virtual machine from one location to another with Hyper-V and a network connection. Hyper-V Replica works with any server vendor, any network vendor and any storage vendor. In addition, we will provide unlimited replication in the box.

Microsoft also is going to allow Windows Server 8 users to replicate unlimitedly without charging additional fees per virtual machine. On the other hand, VMware with their upcoming version of Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is going to charge customers a per VM replication to replicate. This is going to be interesting….

Several others new features coming in the next version of Windows Server. Stay Tuned…
