Understanding Microsoft Virtualisation


It’s no secret that I am not a fan of Microsoft Virtualisation, they seem to be constantly two years behind VMware and are still taking an approach of delivering the hypervisor using a bloated hypervisor based on an aging kernal.   However, it won’t always be thus, through acquisition and sheer determination Microsoft will produce something that’s worthwhile – they always do.  When Novell had the best Directory Service out there Microsoft ruled the world with Active Directory, when Lotus were beginning to get an edge in the market with Notes, Microsoft made Exchange so good we didn’t care that Notes did all the database stuff and was good at replication too.  In the meantime its nice to have an answer to those people that ask “Why not Microsoft?”, so here is a good guide from WindowsITPro to understanding the offerings as they currently stand.
