Windows Server 2012

Today is the day Microsoft official releases Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft is doing a virtual launch event. Windows Server 2012 is a huge step forward for Microsoft virtualization technology Hyper-V.

I the past year I wrote a lot of blog post about the new features in Windows Server 2012 and Hyper-V. I also did some comparing between VMware vSphere 5 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V.

First to get an overview about the new feature in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V you should check out my blog post: Hyper-V 2012 – Hey I Just Met You And This Is Crazy
